First HB Contest
« on: September 29, 2014, 08:37:11 pm »
I found out I placed first in a local home brew competition on Saturday.  It wasn't an officially sanctioned event but was a "people's choice" where 100 tickets were sold to Biergarten at a local Oktoberfest.  Brewed an Oktoberfest with Wyeast 2112 Cal Lager (yes I know but it didn't taste fruity).  I credit all of the knowledge I've gained to the people on the AHA forum, The Brewing Network, Zymurgy Magazine and my local brewing buddies.  Definitely makes me want to enter a sanctioned event.

Thanks.  Yeah Jim, I think the only positive post I read about Wyeast 2112 in an Oktoberfest was from you.
