    Just a bump for the comp. It is about the perfect time to start brewing those hoppy beers for the ESB comp. Autumn temperatures have finally arrived so most brewers should have good places to brew excellent IPA's. So start brewing.

    Barry: for those of us calculating postage costs: one bottle of each entry or two bottles?


    Edit: No worries - one bottle (found it on the pdf) :)

    Peter, are entries just kept at ambient temperature until a day or so before judging, or are they put immediately into cold storage on receipt?
    Just thinking of bottle carbonation of later entries.

    Cheers, Michael

    The beers will not be kept in cold storage. The beers will be at ambient temps during transit, then as ales, will be stored at around 10 C prior to the comp.

    Cheers

    but I'm not there this year so it could be a touch lower quality.

    Entrants posting entries, don't forget the long weekend so you might be cutting it fine by posting the final week.

    May have to increase the entry fee (to clarify - the beer entry fee) to cover your suggestion Barl's,
