I entered a bottle of my AOM in the F.O.A.M. Cup here in Tulsa Oklahoma. This will be my first competition so wish me luck.

Has anybody else entered AOM in a competition, if so how did you do?

Thanks I think I'm going to be the most inexperienced brewer in the mead category. I hope I do well, I'm really just looking forward to seeing my score sheet so I know where to improve.

I got my score back, I got a 29. The judges said I need more acid to balance the sweetness. All three judges said it was cloyingly sweet. The bottle of AOM I entered was only 7 months old so I bet by next year it will do great.
