General Homebrew Discussion / Re: My first competition
« on: April 07, 2010, 03:59:01 PM »
I started entering in competitions this year to get some feedback.    I took one beer and entered it into seven competitions, all in a three-month period.  It took two 1st places (one MCAB qualifier), one 2nd place, two 3rd places, and in two it didn't place at all.  The highest score was 45 and the lowest was 23.  The judges on the lowest scoring comp said my hops were old, but they were my own hops that were harvested last fall.

I also entered a braggot in two competitions a couple of weeks apart from one another.  One judge happened to be one of the judges in both comps.  The first comp it got a score of 35 and on the comment sheet it said that it was well balanced, and for the second comp it got a score of 23 and I was told it was too hoppy and not enough honey was used.  This same braggot also took a 1st place in a competition less than one month earlier than these two last ones.
