    Get yourself down to the event .. Gosford is not far from Newcastle, help the organisers by being a steward, open your ears, taste a few brews. Talk to brewers. A day at the champs will teach you far more weeks of reading threads.

    Hi Thomas

    Stewarding generally involves getting the beers ready to serve, taking the beers to judges as needed and some general roustabout type work to keep things flowing on the day.
    It also tends to involve sampling a wide variety of beers throughout the day.
    It is kinda serious but also generally a fun day.

    Cheers
    Adam

    Hi Barry

    There seems to be a slight hiccup with registering as a judge or steward.
    This should be sorted today or tomorrow.
    I'll post here again once it is sorted out.

    Cheers
    Adam

    ive never entered a comp, would i be better off entering a smaller local one first? or just give it a go?

    any tips for first comp(ers)

    also i only keg usually....what do the seasoned comp guys do for your comp bottles....fill a couple of bottles when kegging and keep them aside for comp/natural carb? or fill from keg using counter pressure cap/filler ect? what do you find more effective....

    I'm not sure i'm seasoned after entering only two comps, but my beer must have been ok as I won the lager category in both. I bottle from a keg with either of the following.

    To plastic (PET) beer bottles: https://www.kegland.com.au/carbonation-line-cleaning-cap.html
    To glass bottles: https://www.kegland.com.au/counter-pressure-bottle-filler-kit.html

    Generally I find it easier to post plastic bottles. If dropping off in person, whatever is easier/have available. The counter pressure kit is fiddly and really should be mounted on a piece of timber or something.

    Cheers, yeah i have the cleaning cap setup already and plently of un-used plastic bottles. could be a goer. so you find you maintain proper carb levels after taking off the cleaner cap and attaching normal plastic bottle cap?
