Thanks guys, I've been hooked on brewing now for 5 years and now I will definitely be entering more competitions.

My buddy uses them in the secondary for his Chocolate Stout and it tastes like a wonderful desert in beer form.  I'm not sure how much he uses, sorry.

very nice!  I wish I had that instead of bottling for my vacation to the UP in August.

Homebrew Competitions / My first Comp
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:28:10 AM »
I finally enterd my first homebrew competition at the county fair.  I've always had an excuse for not entering - I hate bottling, but the truth is I've been too lazy or maybe intimidated that if I compete it will take the fun out of my brewing.  Well I decided that it was time and what I really wanted was good feedback on my brews especially the negative comments (friends don't give negative comments when they are drinking free beer).  I received 1st place for my American Barley Wine and 3rd place for my Amber Ale.  The Barley Wine came in a close second for best of show - I was so close to having my Barley Wine brewed at the local brewery.  Anyway, I don't want to just toot my own horn, but I would like to thank all of you on the forum who have helped me with tips, hints, and ideas that have helped me brew better beer(not a commercial for Gordan's book :D).  It is nice that accomplished homebrewers take the time to help others out like myself.  Thanks again


It looks like making bread with a bread machine.

You could try Carared or a couple oz of Chocolate.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Attenuation

First, the extract could be to blame for the FG.  Some extracts are more unfermentable than others and when I did extract brewing my FG's seemed always too high as well.  Second, you might want to consider making a yeast starter and see if that helps.  Third, you could try partial mash by adding a couple lbs of two-row which could help your fermentability.

I took the advice of Denny with the Carared for a red ale about a year ago and my wife and I liked it quite a bit.  It didn't last long once I invited some friends over.

Now there's another reason for me to move back to Michigan ;)

That's like a portable fire hydrant full of beer.

I could be wrong, but I think the oils could hinder head retention.
