ok.. the rest of my children... went un rewarded.. but i'm just SO happy for this "aling ale" to get some recognition!

Here's a history of all the trauma this beer went thru to get this award.
1. Extreme Blowoff and clogged airlock... went uncovered for 2 day during primary! (i was away for the weekend!)
2. Auto Siphon broke... had to manual siphon... i literally SUCK... no pun... at that.
3. The Carboy for secondary cracked open when i placed it on the tile floor... i lost about a half of a gallon of beer.. huge mess... had to quickly transfer to new carboy (good thing i clean my carboys really well... after i empty them!)... it aerated... it was in trouble.
To think.....i even debated throwing it away!
anyway... congrats to the other winners...and here's to next year!
