Default I Entered the IBU Open

I submitted my year old Russian Imperial Stout to the Iowa Brewers Union Open today.

It is my first contest. I am excited to get feedback from people other than family.

This sounds like a contest to brew the most bitter beer.

It does have a category for bitter beer where there has to be an IBU point for each gravity point. The initial "IBU" in the title stand for "Iowa Brewers Union".

I actually sent several down - my stepson lives in Ankeny, so I did not need to ship anything for a change.... Figured I had beer on hand, and he was delivering.... So, What-the-hell?
I entered a bunch - helles, dortmunder, german pils, ordinary bitter, IPA, American Amber, American Brown, British Dark Mild.
