    Hi All,

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Extra Special Brewers Home Brew Competition so we have chosen a theme of big beers - Monster Mash.

    Closing date is 22 July 2017 so you have plenty of time to brew and mature

    Full details are here

    Cheers

    Bump - ~ 12 weeks to go before entries close. Still enough time to brew and enter some beer.

    Hey all AHB,

    I want to enter a few beers in the upcoming ESB monster mash brew comp and the rules say to fill out on-line registration form and paper form,
    but when i fill out the on-line form the red asterix in the required field box for all four categories of beer is marked and won't let me submit
    my registration because i only wish to enter 2 beers in two categories.I have sent an email asking if i have to enter beer in all categories or
    only fill out paper copy or what, has anyone had this problem and can advise me of what i am doing wrong?

    The on-line entry form has ticked check boxes for the 4 styles of beer, until you tick 1 in each category does the submit icon
    stops being greyed out and allows the registration to send or happen to administrators' will have to go to local home-brew
    shop and ask questions.

    You are not doing anything wrong. I had incorrectly set the form up.

    I have just tested it and it works for me now.

    Please try again and let me know how you get on

    Cheers

    I don't think so as I can only see 1 other person who has registered their entries so far

    If I drop off bottles to The Brew Shop Peakhurst a week before the due date, will they be stored in a fridge or at room temp in the meantime?

    Also, any tips on making sure that the ink on bottle entry labels doesn't run?

    Hi, The beers will be stored at room temperature at The Brew Shop which at this time of the year will be reasonably cool. Once collected a week before the judging they will be cold stored at the judging venue.

    As to the second question try a permanent marker and don't apply to a bottle that is damp.

    Cheers
    Peter

    2/55 Queen Street, Campbelltown, NSW, 2560 or
    18 Flora St, Kirrawee, NSW 2232.
