Just won my first real medal in a homebrew competition. Took 1st place in the Beer Baronís Brew Brawl in the Category 17: Sour Ale with a Sour Brown with Tart cherries, and 3rd overall for the Best of French Category with it. Anyone else win anything ever in a competition? There was 421 entries, so I feel a little proud of myself.

Congrats!

I have not submitted any recipes or homebrews in the past, but it sounds like a good confidence builder.

I think there should definitely be an ISO category in the trade threads exclusively for homebrews. There probably is, though.

Iíve won multiple firsts for my Classic American Pilsner, the biggest comp having been the Drunk Monk Challenge with close to 1000 entries. Got me an entry into the Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing. Pretty cool when someone else blindly chooses your beer as the best on the table!

Just one lonely bronze for a mead.

I won BOS (out of 75 entries) in the first homebrew comp I entered. Since then I have had some good scores with clean, no-fault beers, but no winners due to most of the beers I make sit outside of judges interpretations of the style guidelines.
