Ferg: When will you finalise judging and stewarding?

Only reason I ask is because I could enter all 3 categories but if asked to judge or steward one of them, I won't (1 entry can possibly fit two styles so will still enter the beer - just depends on where.)

Cheers

@Cambrew: If you mail it in time, clearly label it and include the entry fee, I reckon you'd be fine. I've mailed beers all over the country and all have shown up at the required destination. Just do it ahead of schedule so the beer has time to settle after being shaken around (unless it's bottled from keg etc).

I'm thinking about entering as my first entry to a competition ever.

Is feedback on the beer provided or is it simply just a list of the top three's?

Feedback sheets are written by all judges for every beer and returned to competitors (at least in all VICBREW sanctioned comps such as this one).

Quality of feedback may vary according to the judge and the time in the flight when they taste the beer but it's not limited to 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

I would really like to enter this comp but I have no way of getting my beer there. :(
I'm sure Westgate will allow you to mail an entry to one of their members - or just send it to Grain and Grape.
We (Melbourne Brewers) had one mail-in-entry for our recent British Ales comp was no problem.
Since entries close -for most all comps- 1 week before the competition, it gives the beer ample time to settle.

Manticle,
Can you email westgatebrewers@yahoo.com.au and I'll let the comp organiser know..although I think you have already done so and I've forwarded your details to Michael Bowron the comp organiser..sorry on the iPhone and can't check...

Thanks Wolfy...
Might I suggest that the entry is sent to the Grain and Grape...just be a bit easier...
Obv make sure it is well packaged and well labeled !
