And the winner is...

Not me exactly, but my Pine Tar Porter took 3rd of 19 porters in the World Expo of Beer homebrew competition. Being that it was my first entry ever and I've only been brewing all-grain since December (I've been brewing for over 5 years total), I couldn't be happier about it. I've also brewed my first all-grain wheat beer on Sunday. I learned a few thinks about the water retention differences of wheat and barely malt and what a stuck run-off is. In other homebrew news; the hops are poking out of the ground in my garden and I planed a 20x10 patch of 6-row barley yesterday. More on all that later.

Congratulations!!

It doesn't surprise me that you were in the top three. In my opinion, you brew the best tasting beer around.

Who could possibly have won 1st and 2nd? Must be some mighty fine beer out there...
