2 Golds
« on: November 23, 2011, 12:29:58 PM »
Recently I entered the CABA "All About Ales" competition here in Canada.  I haven't gotten any of my results yet but I did get an email that I won a Gold Medal for my American Pale Ale and a Gold Medal for my Kolsch.

Really excited about the results and I can't wait to get the score sheets to see how I can make them better.

Thanks all. 
I won't post every time I enter a contest but this is the first one I've done that followed BJCP style guidelines so I'm pretty happy with the result.  I have to thank all of you who've given me such great advice to help me brew these beers.  Couldn't have done it without all the help from the AHA forum. 

I may have to send some to NHC next year, assuming I can get them across the border that is.

Well, definitely a new comer to all grain, that's for sure. 
See what the AHA forum can do!
