Entered my Pale Ale (my 5th brew) in LHBS brew competition. It wasn't a sanctioned event and the category I entered was the Yellow category, which included Pilsners, Pale Ales, Steams, etc... There was a total of about 60 beers in my category and I finished 3rd! I was shocked when they announced my name. Talking w/ other contestants and their techniques, equipment, etc..., well, I felt a little overwhelmed and just didn't want to finish last. Just goes to show it doesn't have to be fancy to be good! Now, let's see if I can replicate it!
