Welcome to Hop Yours Homebrewing Club!
The Art of Beer was an art show featuring beer as art. In addition to having great art exhibits, we had a mini homebrewing competition and tasting as part of the event. We were lucky enough to be asked to participate.
The results are in. Taco Mac and Atlanta Brewing Company took the total of 103 submissions and whittled that down to 20, with five groups of tasters advancing their favorite from a field of approximately 20 per group. That group of 20 got broken down to five finalists, and then ultimately one winner. The finalists are:
And the winner is….Bob Southard for “The Queen’s Imperial Cherry Chocolate Porter”! Congratulations to Bob.
So out of 103 submissions, we placed in the top 6. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. You can read the entire results article here,
Just like the immersion chiller, I decided to build a counter-pressure bottle filler, rather than buy one. The main thing I wanted was all stainless-steel parts, no brass and nothing containing lead.
Some assembly required, but nothing difficult.
Here’s the finished counter-pressure chiller. Mine is all stainless-steel and I saved about $40 building vs. buying.
Here are a few pictures of the counter-pressure filler in-use. It works very well.
Pictures and text forthcoming – we promise!!
