Homebrewing for over twenty years and judging competitions for five. I have brewed every style category and subcategory in the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines for beer, mead and cider. I am also a BJCP Mead Judge. In addition to brewing every chance I get, I love to help with beer and mead judge training classes and thoroughly enjoy beer evaluation!
