    Hi All

    Fraser Coast Bayside Brewers Inc. are pleased to announce dates for the 2017 Fraser Coast Home Brew Competition

    Sunday 30th April 2017 will be Competition Day.

    Since the 29, 30 and 1st is a long weekend, we've brought the comp forward to accommodate those who wish to use it as a prelude to the state comp with ample time to re-brew etc.

    Few changes from last & previous years due to the size of the comp these days:

    • Registered the comp as a sanctioned BJCP event http://www.bjcp.org/apps/comp_schedule/competition_schedule.php so those up and coming judges / stewards / helpers can gain points towards quals.
    • Moving to an online pre-registration which Mark Mc is currently working on and should be up and running by Christmas. This will give us about 2 hrs more judging time on the day.
    • Moving to an on site data entry so results will be available pretty much immediately and certificates will be printed as soon as scores are checked on the day.
    • Run a mini panel comprised of a few special people from within the craft & HB sectors to add value to the event similar to this years one, but slightly extended.
    • Entirely BJCP styles - open to all styles within the latest version of the BJCP Style Guidelines
    • Entry will be $2.00 per brewer and $5.00 per entry - all proceeds will go to Fraser Coast Bayside Brewers Inc.
    We'll be looking for a lot more tables with 3 judges and a couple of "L" platers per table.

    We'll be looking for at least 5 Stewards & a Chief Steward to oversee.
    The 2016 comp had 113 entries from QLD, NSW, Vic, Tas and the NT.

    This year based on feedback, we're expecting somewhere up closer the 200 mark.


    On the unofficial side, the event after the event is usually a pretty big affair. Last year we had about 70 odd attend for dinner and some 25 or so extra bodies for breakfast. We're expecting quite a lot of brewers from all over to make the pilgrimage as usual, so for those who arrive on the Saturday, there'll be plenty of food and something to cleanse the palate.

    There's no rush for those travelling home as usual and we'll run the normal big breakfast on Monday morning.

    If anyone is keen to lock themselves in for judging or stewarding, the pay is crap, but the beer is good and the company is better. We'll get a judging/stewarding nomination form up when the registrations go live.

    We'll update regularly over the coming months.

    UPDATE for the FCBB Fraser Coast Home Brew Competition for 2017.

    Online registration is now live and can be found at www.frasercoastbrewers.com

    All styles under 2015 BJCP style guidelines will be judged. The Competition has been registered with BJCP, so points can be accumulated for those who have done the BJCP entrance exam.

    For those travelling and those helping with set up on Saturday 29th, there will be dead animals on the BBQ or on coals and a few beers.

    Sunday the 30th is competition day.

    After the comp, our guest pro brewers will do a short panel session for open question time.

    Sunday dinner is planned as a Louisiana style Crawdad Boil plus some pulled meats. think there's about 14 beers to go on tap.

    Monday 1st (long weekend) is a recovery day as needed and a full cooked breakfast will be done up to feed the droves.

    For anyone coming, there are about 18 odd bed spaces in the house, but plenty of room for swags, tents and a couple of campers etc in the back yard.

    I think it will still be another couple of days. There are ~500 scoresheets to check and scan as well as determining points/etc, which is all done in their own personal time.

    Thanks mate. It actually scored just average in a comp earlier in the year due to DMS so this score definitely surprised me.
    Were there prizes? I don't remember

    I believe certificates and feedback sheets are mailed out mid next week - so if a prize is available, that may be when you get it. Not sure how many prizes are given out though sorry - I only know for sure that best kit beer had a prize.

    Hi All, I have no idea why my post for the results didn't show up. all was looking fine before closing the window.

    Thanks for posting up the results mtb, and congrats on your beers.

    There was some prizes allocated for Champion Beer and also to Champion Brewer, sponsored by National Home Brew and Mangrove Jacks.

    There was also some prizes allocated by Morgans Brewing for the kit section.

    Thanks to all who participated, entered and to those who travelled to be there for the event. It was a blast.

    Full results have gone out on Monday to everyone who entered, and Certificates have gone out with sheets by post for those who medalled thanks to a mighty effort from Karen who laboured on until all hours.

    Full Results and round-up are on the clubs webpage www.frasercoastbrewers.com
