    Anyone interested in judging , please email the club at westgatebrewers@yahoo.com.au
    That way I can forward it to the competition organiser.
    Just a reminder
    NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY
    This is a change from previous years..we had 40 entries on the day last year and it severely stressed our data entry and required hasty setting up of extra judging tables.we wish to stop that from happening this year.
    Cheers

    Dan,
    Usually it's a week before the competition...so that would be Saturday June 29th...I'd like to say that it's close of Business at said Brewshops...but i'd suggest having them in by midday on the 29th....
    There will be some advirtising coming out soon , but we just wanted to get confirmation from Ellerslie , our major prize sponsor that they are sposoring us again...and they are...They have provided $600 worth of various hops for prizes !
    Cheers
    Ferg

    If I have a milk stout that also has oatmeal in it, can I enter this as an oatmeal stout? Not sure what category a milk stout comes under.

    Both will be in sweet stout.

    You could enter a beer without oats or lactose in either sub- category - just depends under which guidelines you'd prefer to be judged.

    In fact you could enter the same beer in both sub-cats to see what differences the judges pick up and how it fares under one compared with the other.
