I'll have to tender my apologies, I'm stuck in Toowoomba this week by the looks. Odd as it would seem, I haven't an American to bless myself with anyway! :icon_cheers:

Will hopefully have one or two entries in the mini-comp, depending on weather my bottle filler wants to play nice. Will have a play tomorrow night and see....

Looking forward to some great American beers!!

Cheers!

What are the requirements for the comp? How many bottles, and do I need to bring along the recipe sheet etc?

Also, is it judged on the night?

Cheers,
Cam

THe beer has to be in one of those classes. You can bring two entries, one bottle of each.
If you are a member then you need to nominate one as your scoring beer, towards the most consistent brewer, and one as for feedback only (although you still get a score on the sheet).
Non-members can only receive feedback and a score.
You don't need to bring the recipe sheet but if you score well and/or have samples people will ask you questions :)

It is judged on the night, at a table.
We have a mix of judging experience at the club, so its a consensus and discussion approach.
The mini=comps are intended as much as a learning experience for judging and critiquing as they are feedback for your beer.

One ~750ml bottle (PET or glass). It's up to you if you want to bring the recipe, but it could be handy if others want to know more about the beer. Also feel free to bring additional bottles to share before and after the judging for more feedback.

On the night, those present are split up into about 5 tables (depending on the number of people/entries), and each table judges 3-5 beers. Beers are brought out anonymously and the whole table participates in the judging. There's no guarantee that your beer won't be brought to your table, so if you suspect that and you want unbiased feedback, it's usually a good idea to keep quiet ;)

You have to be a member to be eligible for prizes, but visitors are welcome to enter a beer for feedback. Points for members' beers are accumulated over the year and used to determine the most consistent brewer award at the end of the year.

Cheers,
tallie
