    Here are the results for Sydney:


    I got a call after the event saying that my entry in Brewer's Choice category (a Hefeweizen) actually came 4th, but they made a mistake and didn't call it out on the night. (they're sending me out an Honourable Mention certificate and prize out to me, so now harm done).

    All in all it was a good comp to enter - although the low scores were a bit brutal and faults were picked up that my untrained palette struggles to detect. I didn't get any first places, but won $200 of bar tab vouchers. A tidy sum not to be sneezed at.


    Edit: Scores are out of 160.

    No problem. Typically i use Tettnang in a Kolsch, but with everyone's love of new world hops I decided to use Riwaka, Nelson Sauvin and Helga. A bit more hop presence than a traditional Kolsch, but not completely over the top. A Kolsch seems to be a bit of the crowd pleaser: I have never had anyone turn up their nose.

    Anyways it would be good to have a few AHB-ers there this Sunday 3.00pm at Beer Deluxe Fed Square. $10 and you get to try all 12 finalists and vote.

    I'd bloody love to mate, but it's homebrewer to pro brewer on Monday and I'd be eating a fair amount of glass with 2 leave passes in a row.

    Best of luck though mate.

    I also received a call saying my 2nd place in the IPA category at hawthorn had been upgraded to 1st place. As the 1st place guy had won the Wagga event so cant be in twice for the same beer. So ill take the win haha.
