This last week I finally got around to filling some bottles for entry into some competitions! I bottled off the end of my most recent keg of Special Bitter, winding up with a baker's dozen filled bottles. Flushed with success for the first outing of my fully fledged counterpressure filler, I decided to fill some bottles of my Oktoberfest test batch. Two bottles filled and the keg kicked! Good thing that the standard competition submission is two bottles!
So I've entered the Special Bitter and the Oktoberfest into the local Pro-Am competition being run by Olde Hickory Brewery, and the Special Bitter has been entered into the Carolina Quarterly Brew-Off.
Fingers crossed for some ribbons!
