So first the bit of bragging. I had 2 competitions this past weekend(my first and second), both regional and relatively small fields. I had 5 entries and I tied myself for first in one competition and took second place in both.
Overall I am really hard on my beers and hold myself to what is likely too high of a standard(my favorite craft beers). This was a nice attaboy for my overly critical standards.
Now the thanks, I have only been brewing since June and I could not be making the beer I am today without this board and the resources it has made available to me.
Another awesome bit of thanks goes to a brewclub member who presented me with a can of Heady Topper for winning the one comp. A beer that this hop head has been excited to try but haven't been able to get my hands on one.
So thanks, brew on and hopefully I can return the knowledge to people who are in need.
