Hi All

Where can I find a copy of the entry form for this comp?

+ A quick heads up to JasonY..... His 'Award Winning' Oatmeal Stout (prize winner at our local WestCoast Brewers stout comp) will do well If he has any left to enter......

If your thinking of tyring this style - his recipe would be a good start IMHO..

Asher for now

I don't believe that the "not to be refilled" is an issue. I have asked Mike again and he will get someone to respond to these questions.
