First off, we would love to thank all of you for participating in Big Brew 2011! You are the people that make this event special and allow new brewers to see how much fun it is to be a part of the homebrewing community. Thank you for sharing your experiences and good luck brewing in the future. We got an amazing turn out across the country with over 290 sites, 1030 batches (7,941 gallons!) and over 3,750 participants reported so far.
This year there was a great collection of videos to choose from. There were videos with personalized mash paddles, all sorts of great, unique gadgets and systems, and of course plenty of brewing. The most important thing however is that AhA Big Brew is an event which brings homebrewers of all different skill levels and backgrounds together. As always, we encourage and support the growth of AHA homebrew clubs and the development of talented homebrewers alike.
And the winners are....
