Toronto Beer Week - My results
« on: September 19, 2011, 08:11:14 PM »
I have no idea where to put this so I'm putting it here.

I entered a few beers in the Toronto Beer Week home brew competition and the results came in today.

Remember, this is not a BJCP event although they use the BJCP categories.  It's basically a good beer competition judged by brewers and bar owners in Toronto.

I received the following places:

Gold - Belgian Wit and Pale Ale - Chamomile Wit
Silver - Amber Hybrid - Cali Common
Bronze - Saison - French Saison

I entered 5 beer and medaled in 3 of the 5 categories I entered so I'm happy. 
Gold medal winners go onto the 2nd round this weekend to determine best of show and final standings so wish me luck.
Thanks for all the help and advice.
Graham

Wow, well done! Good luck in the BOS.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

That is a very good result.  3 out of 5 is a high medal to entry ratio.  Some guy named Gordon talks about a 1/3 ratio being typical for a good brewer.

Nice work, its fun to medal in a big comp.

Chamomile wit, sounds so soothing.  Something Grandma could serve to her friends at the quilting bee.  Might even be the origin of the crazy quilt.
