Ok Queensland Brewers, I have received notification from the president of the Canberra brew club that they would be happy to judge the Qld beers in this years qualifying competition in Canberra. The beers would be judged with the Canberra entries, but will be awarded places against other Qld entries only, so it will be a Qld comp. Here is the email from Kurtz to me.

Andrew

If there is not a properly constituted qld comp..that is three qualified/experienced judges etc etc then we will be happy to judge your beers.
The process would be that they would be judged in the same flights as ours, blind of course , but when the scores were collated they would be seperated, thus if a beer from Qld were the highest scoring in a flight and the seond highest were and ACT then the both the Qld and the ACT would be given a first place. A Qld beer may come 8th in the ranking but be the 2nd highest Qld beer, thus would be awarded 2nd and if it had sufficient points would be eligible for the nats.

Without making too much of the ACT judges we have consistently had the best brewers in Australia, our judges are very experienced, include many National winners as well we have six members who have completed the BJCP course.
Your beers will be judged by the best, if they score well in the ACT (we are a little harsher than most)then they should (given a high standard of judging,) do well in the Nats.

Of course if there is a properly constituted Qld comp then it takes precedence I guess.

Kurtz


As there is no Qld comp organised in Qld, and it is too late for me to organise one here, this would be the best option for Qlders to get into the Nats.
There will also be media coverage of the event as per this email.
Andrew

Our judging is taking place in the Board Room at the Eastlake FC in Canberra.
There will be press (TV, radio and Print) and pPublic (from the viewing stand)
Do you object to our using the fact that Qld beers are being judged as well in Publicity Blurb...

K


I have agreed to the above, the more involved the better.
Next year I will be hosting a State Competition here in Bundaberg, we have several experienced judges to start with and have been running a local comp here for about 9 yrs.
Here is the link to the canberra Brewers site A few changes have to be made to the forms but it will be done soon http://www.canberrabrewers.org/

I would like to personally thank Kurtz and the Canberra Brewers for giving us the opportunity to enter the competition, it is gratefully appreciated.
All entries are to be clearly marked QUEENSLAND.


Cheers
Andrew

Thanks Andrew,

I'm probably being thick, but where on their site are the forms?

Also, how long do we have to put in entries?

Cheers Ross

There is a link on the left of the site "competitions" the forms are being changed to reflect this years comp as 2005, but the 2004 ones are there and I believe are the same. I am still waiting on confirmation of closing date for entries and will let you know ASAP. Judging will be held on 1st OCT.
Please everyone be patient and I will post the rest of the details soon. I thought it was best to let you all know that the comp will go ahead, and then iron out details later.
Cheers
Andrew

Cut off date for entries is 24/9/05. I will let you know the postal address on the weekend.
The forms on the site are going to be the same including the style guides it is just the dates that need to be changed.

Hey Andrew,

I was packing my entries last night and I couldn't find any mention of who to make the cheque out to. I would assume it's Canberra Brewers, correct?

Cheers - Snow.

What size is a standard grolsh flip top?

Is this going to be too small as a single bottle for the canberra comp?

Ross is that the green bottles your talking about, I think there 345ml. If you haven't got any lager bottles then that will have to do. As there are no bottle size requirements on the entry forms then you should be alright, most comps will allow 750ml or 375ml entries as a rule.

Rules state minimum 600ml - or 2 x 375ml. I thought the grolsh were approx 500ml - so i guess I'll have to send 2 (it's only 1 beer)...

Well, got my beers all packed & ready to post - Any tips on the best option other than Australia post, as they do not have a fragile service?
Heard some real horror stories re broken bottles - The post office tell me the box must be able to withstand being dropped from chest height - mine wouldn't stand a chance of that...

I thought Grolsh bottles were 500ml? So you would need 2 of them.

It's all a bit confusing, because most craftbrew beers are in 330ml or 345ml bottles, not 375ml, and the brown PET bottles are actually 700ml, not 750ml. I think most of the rules need updating.

Ross,
It is possible, given the extra entries that judging would take 2 days, so it is likely to finish today. So you probably won't know anything until Monday.

Cheers
