This year's Indiana Brewer's Cup awards brought yet another shock. My Oktoberfest, calle Marzen Dotes and Dozy Dotes too 1st place in its catagory. Even though my "year of fame" for winning Best of Show last year has drawn to a close. I can rest comfortably in knowing that as long as I keep brewing new styles of beer, I will always have a chance to place in this competition.
This year's ribbon winner, like the last two year's winners were all first time batches. I guess its all just beginner's luck. So now the question arrises, what to do for next year?
