I’ve been a pseudo homebrewer for just over three years now. This year is the second that I’ve entered homebrew into the Peach State Brew Off. Last year I was comfortable with the professional judges critiquing of my beer. Though none won medals, they all had positive feedback and some constructive criticism, just what I need at my early stages of brewing. This year I brewed a pale ale recipe that I wrote shortly after I started brewing. It was my fourth brew to be exact (3rd if you don’t count the porter that a former coworker brewed at my house). I’ve changed the recipe slightly each time and I’m surprised at how much minor changes have a bigger effect.
After the comments I received last year from both the Peach State Brew Off and Savannah Summer Sud’s competition, I was feeling pretty good about brewing this beer again. Only that I forgot when the entry deadline was and had to rush fermentation. Well everything worked out ok and we landed our first homebrew ribbon. Gold medal in the American Pale Ale category.
The video didn’t upload as clear as I would have liked, so I may replace it with a bigger version. A link is at the very bottom if you’re viewing on mobile. Now it’s time to tweak some more and brew again. Beer sure does fly away when it’s good. Cheers!
