Call for judges just went out for Westgate Brewers Stout Extravaganza 2019. If you didn't get it and are interested PM me and I will pass on the email address. They will be looking for a range of judges including novices. It is BJCP registered for those who are.

As per last year, we will have a Specialty Category for those brewers who like to experiment. There were a huge number of entries, with Specialty being the second largest, so this will require additional judges. Feel free to pass this request around. If anyone has an interest in the Specialty Category, let me know and I will pencil you in.

Just wondering if score sheets will be posted out to the entrants? Would like to see any feedback to do better next time [emoji1303]
Have you seen the results?
It seems only members of Westgate brewers can access the facebook page...
Typically the score sheets are emailed out...

Haven’t seen the full results yet. I briefly dropped in to the Local to catch the top 3 announcements. It was Very well put together and a great turn out namely by members of Westgate and Merri Mashers.

Unfortunately I could only stay for a moment as was with the kiddos and in laws.

I’m looking forward to the feedback and crossing fingers I didn’t take home the wooden spoon

Sorry but we have had some issues with the results this year. I don't think we will be able to publish tonight until we work out what has happened. I know this is disappointing but we need to make sure everything is accurate. Hopefully we will be sorted by tomorrow night.
