I have never submitted any of our beers for awards but I am planning on doing so next year for sure.
I don't have anything against competitions/awards in general, but I'll never enter GABF. Way too much beer and way too much money spent marketing to a bunch of drunks who are mostly from out of state.
By the way, I didn't see you or Tommy at the Nook last night to celebrate the silver medal! I went to support Weedy, he's a great kid, and becoming an excellent brewer as well.I didn't even know. I was working last night. But, last night if I wasn't working I would have gone to Rocket Republic for "The Martian: Science Facts vs. Science Fiction, where you'll hear from 5 subject matter experts from NASA Marshall Space Flight Center who are actively working on some of the technologies showcased in the movie."
I drank a 7 oz pour of the AdamBeir again and it has gotten even better than the last time I tried it. The Brett is really starting to pick up that nice cherry pie filling/Orvalish character. What an excellent beer! I call BULLSH!T about the 12% though. Probably 10%.
That has to be one of the coolest brewery events ever.
Geek out, Huntsville!
That beer is extraordinarily good, I told weedy (their head brewer) that I thought it was the best beer ever brewed in Alabama. That said, we have never entered a beer in any competition yet, so there is that.I saw Weedy on the news the other night. This is big for the Huntspatch beer scene ...the local news jumped on it!
Also for fermentation it was in a fermentaion chamber with a johnsons control temp controller in conjunction with a thermowell at 68* for the two weeks in primary and as said before i did a two stage yeast starter. i know for sure i had proper viability and count and was well within temp range. I used brewersfriend.com's yeast calculator for my starter volumes and rates. I'm sure my issue has to be in recipe. Maybe torrified wheat instead or maybe add carapills, although ive heard mixed feelings about carapills.
I've been to two restaurant in the past two days. Both served Yellowhammer Belgian White. You have great exposure Keith.
