AHA Competition – Moving On!
|May 10, 2011||Posted by 2nobledogs under Uncategorized|
Well, I sent in a one of my black IPA beers to the American Homebrewers Association National Homebrew Competition. This is the first competition I’ve ever entered and I did it at the insistence of my wonderful wife. I did it in hopes of getting some helpful tips on how to make the beer better. When I received my score sheets last week I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that I had advanced to the final round. I guess in the back of my mind I thought it would be nice to move on but I kept it in the back of my mind. Go figure…
The recipe was basically the same recipe I posted a while back with a few tweaks due to the ingredients I had on hand. Once I compile the comments from the score sheets I will make some adjustments and see where it goes.
Anyway, there was nobody more surprised than I, but… I have been grinning from ear to ear ever since I found out.
One last thing…I’m very proud to be a part of the James River Homebrewers Club which managed to advance 5 beers from 4 different brewers. Way to go guys! Woot!
