Open to all styles, as long as they are all grain.

And it must be able to be brewed commercially eg. 3KG rasberries in a 20L brew is a LOT of rasberries when scaled up to 500L.

Good luck to everyone!

Well there goes my Japan style rice lager. I suppose the rice could be soaked over might in the mash tun. All 50 kgs of it.

I might need some tips on filling stubbies from a keg.
I found some bottles of oatmeal stout today, from Oct. 2011, didn't think I had any left. Can I enter 2 longnecks instead of 4 stubbies?

Willing to give both the rye and rice a go if either was a winner. Push the boundaries, lets show people what home brewing is all about.

Got some serious competition here fellas. My 17 year old daughter is brewing for this comp on Friday. Does a very nice brew she does. You blokes better make sure you are on the ball - don't want to get pipped by somebody not even old enough to drink what she brews.
Cheers

What time frame are we looking at Paul? When does Luke need the sample?

according to the email I received, entries close January 1st.

Which is a mighty tight dead line IMO

Can anyone tell me whether there are any other requirements for this comp, other than what has been discussed in this thread to date? I did send an email but never got a reply!

Cheers Chief

Brew what ever you like, although it is getting a little close to the closing date (12th January). I never got a reply from my email either, but talking to Paul and Luke, it seems any style of beer is ok. Just enter, is all I can say.
I have 2 entries in at the moment, there is no limit to how many you can enter, plus there is not any entrance cost either.
Hope that helps a little.
Cheers
