This won a blue ribbon in the B3 comp! (My first competition.) Not only that but three of the five beers I entered placed. Another blue for my Black Hills Robust Porter and a bronze for my Gila Monster American Brown.

The Red I sent was not even my best. I had to sub Liberty, Vanguard, and Argentine Cascade for the Sterling. It was good but Sterling is better.

I took the FG for my K-97 batch and it is very good. More crisp and maybe even cleaner than US-05. The yeast is a pain to deal with though.

I subbed pale chocolate for carafa in my last batch. It's not as good, it made it closer to a brown ale. I only had 4 oz crystal 40L so I upped the crystal 60L and added 2 oz crystal 15L to compensate. The underlying sweetness form the two oz of the c-15L almost make a licorice flavor with the c-80L. The original recipe is still the best.

I have some crazy hop schedule going on there.

I'm going to try to get some friends over for that too.

This was our first brew ever. We skipped extract and dove straight into all-grain. It did turn into a DARK little number, but was an excellent beer. Very nutty with almost a coffee taste at the end. No aftertaste. I'm not usually into more than a couple of brown ales at one sitting, but my brother and I and one other buddy killed ~5 gallons of this beauty in one night. I didn't have enough left to bottle.

I got my score sheets and ribbons from B3 finally. Scored 35.5. They thought is was too dry and not complex enough. Balanced well but needing both more malt and hops (they obviously did not realize it was at the limit for ABV.)

My old MLT would loose temp so all my beer were dry. My new Coleman Extreme 52 holds temp well.

I will add 10% Munich in my next batch. One judge suggested using a more estery yeast.

Their notes read very much like the guidelines. I thought that was how to get a high score?
