Hi All,

Yes it's back the Extra Special Brewers 2013 Homebrew Competition.

The styles are Aussie Beers Sugar and Spice plus one new Aussie Brown Ale and one old style 1913 Double Stout - these should provide a Challenge!!

Lots of great prizes from our generous sponsors.

BJCP Judges can get in some practice and some points. Mark your calendars and drop me a note prstemp@yahoo.com.au

Stewards will also be needed.

Good Luck

Page 8 of the pdf gives you the postal address at Peakhurst.

My Aus lager is in the fermenter with an ale to follow in a couple of weeks.

edit: nice mouse piss twang developing already so well pleased.

Mate you've got over a month to go and if CUB can crank out a fine brew such as VB in 21 days I'm sure you can.


Re comp: I see that there is a gap of a week between receipt of entries and judging. Will the bottles be kept at ambient for the week or in cold storage?

Also I see we can enter two per style, does that mean for example: two AusPA, two light Lager, or does it mean two lager but different types of lager?

Good Day Bribie

It is a maximum of two entries of the same style e.g. two foreign stouts. You can put two entries of every single style in the comp if you wish. The entries will spend some time in fairly cool temps while being labelled etc. then put into the cold room. The entries will not be subjected to any extreme temps (i.e. over 24oC) at any time.
Still time to brew beers and add some Aussie spice to the last few litres to have a speciality beer entry as well.

Just to get it straight, say I brew 2 Aussie Light Lagers and then spice up a few bottles of one of the brews with some dogswamp beetlenut bush does that mean I can enter three Light Lagers but one of them goes into the spiced class?
Or am I only allowed a total of two, with one of them spiced and the other "as is" ?

HI Bribie

To clarify there are 4 separate groupings for this competition so in the A section you could enter 2 light lagers under Style 1.1 PLUS in the C Special group you could enter 2 Australian spiced light lagers based on Style 1.1 as well if you wanted to.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Still time to brew a quick entry, especially a pale Aussie ale or lager. Add some Aussie spice to a couple of litres of that beer that you are about to bottle.
