The Mash Paddle has developed as an excellent way for All grain brewers
to compete against their peers based mainly on brewing and recipe
creation skills.

It has been my desire since its creation that the Paddle be handed over
to a national competition to ensure a continuity over the coming years.

After discussion with the committee of ANAWBS (Australian National Amateur
Wine and Beer Show) involving a full restructuring of the beer competition I
am very happy to announce the Mash Paddle will now be the premiere All Grain
brewing competition at this the oldest National Homebrewing Beer competition
in Australia.

All the same "rules" will apply but now you will have until the middle
of September to get your entries in. And if you haven't previously considered entering there is now time to get your entries in.

This year's Mash Paddle winner, can rightly claim to be the national
champion of the only exclusively all grain category within any Australian
national competition.

Full further entry details for the mash paddle, and the other ANAWBS
classifications will be posted in the near future by members of the ANAWBS
committee.

A new collection address will be provided shortly.

I am very happy with the new style guidelines and the judging criteria for the other beers in the competition categories and look forward to tasting your entries for the
2005 Paddle.

That is good news, I was wondering what the others were talking about with references to entering this or that beer in the "Mash Paddle" at the Brisbane Big Brew Day, untill I saw the link in a post earlier this week, and saw I'd missed the boat.

Congratulations Steve, it is quite an achivement, and bloody good thing aswell.

Just have to brew the winner this Saturday :p

Cheers,

Jason

I am only new to this forum and while I am not sure what question I should ask, I do wonder what others get out bagging the crap out of other people who post here, there seems to be a lot of it going on. Why not be possitive. Participation on the forum is important otherwise there would be one, and all the negativity is dissapointing.

I hope I haven't gone too far or missed the point...

I would have thought comps are a good thing as a way to improve our brewing standards :D :beer:

Another thread hijacked by --- [insert word or blunt object]


I will post the relevant info that has changed as soon as possible.

The "guidelines" for the beer are the same.

beertime the new ANAWBS site is currently, as the say in the property ads, under construction.

Once the builders have left, hopefully in about a week's time, I'll post a link to the new anawbs site which will have full details on all the new beer categories, entry dates, fees etc, including the updated collection point for the mash paddle entries.

As part of the new anawbs committee I am stoked that the mash paddle has joined our comp, and very pleased with the work we have done in improving the rest of the guidelines.

Bear with us, I am sure the bulk of craft brewers will appreciate the changes too.

Rest assured, when the site is up and running AHB members will be, after the committee, the very first to know.

Good Day
I am about to bottle the MPC beer soon, do I still need to have two plastic bottles for the comp.? I usually send my entries to the ANAWBS in a box.

Thankyou Barry ! :beerbang:

I must have been on the road while this was happening and had no idea the dates had changed.

I still have a chance of an entry , will the judges be still the same Chiller?
