    Ferg,

    Can I just clarify the closing date. The entry form says Friday 28th (tomorrow), but you previously stated Saturday 29th. The guy at Greensborough HBS thought it was Friday.

    I can drop it off on Friday, but Saturday would suit better.

    Thanks.

    Damn. My stout is tasting good but won't be bottled until Saturday so I'm going to be too late.

    See you there for judging I guess.

    its my first stout and first comp entry since starting brewing. :ph34r:

    Was inspired to brew this from my home town that has a water tower with oatmeal stout advertised on it, never really cared about that water tower until I started brewing....lol.

    This beer has malted oats, instead of flaked.Back in the ealry 20's when they brewed, I doubt they had flaked oats. It is not as dark as most stouts but within the BJCP guidelines. Has a nice noble hop content, full bodied and finishes dry from the use of Irish Ale yeast. I left the roasted barley out and that meant no roasting character and also why its not as dark.

    Overall i think its a quality stout, please let me know from an experienced brewer what you think of the beer and any feedback will be welcome.

    Dan

    It will be blind tasted by the judges and they will provide feedback ( in line with the beer compared to the aabc style guidelines)which you will recieve a week or two after the comp , in the mail.

    Brewers,
    Stout Extravaganza has been run and won !
    Thanks fo to our sponsors ,Ellerslie Hops , Burbank homes , Mtn Goat and Beer and Brewer magazine.
    We had good support from the other brew clubs yesterday and it was nice to see the other clubs supporting us with entries , as well as the independants ! We had 55 entries total , which we considered a managable and good number.
    Bayside ran away with most of the awards and also took home best club.They are now the recipient of the Bill Mutton memorial trophy.
    Barry Roberts from bayside judged on the day and also took home a swag of awards for himself and his club members.
    Only Michael Bowron from Westgate placed.
    Once again , thanks everyone for your support.
    The results are here !
