Iíd won a bunch of second place medals in local competitions then this year decided to enter our national homebrew competition in the UK. Won 1st place imperial stout and overall stout category, 2nd place speciality for a black ipa and 3rd place wheat beer for a dunkelweizen. Pretty happy about that but the beers Iím making arenít really up to the standard Iíd like to achieve. Iím very happy I won 1st in the stout category, itís always nice to hear strangers enjoy my beer but I feel the beer could have been better. I aspire to brew as good beer as the ones I rate most highly on this site and at the moment Iím way far off it. Iím going to work on my recipes and try to be stricter with my practices and hopefully achieve more 1st place medals next year and brew beer that Iím truly proud of and happy with
