Spring Comp?
« on: August 04, 2015, 04:07:56 PM »
Is the Spring Competition still on?  There has not been any news on this since the March newsletter.
It states....
"Entries will close in early AUGUST (date TBA)"

Has a date for entries and judging been decided yet?

Newsletter that just came out today from the new Committee mentions a comp - so I'd guess there is more info on the way. I know from my previous time on the committee that August date was picked to be just before SABSOSA intentionally, but I'm now out of the loop so it may have changed.

Greg, you heard this first hand tonight, but for the benefit of all...

We are looking at a couple of options, and I will be able to make an announcement most likely on Thursday morning.

I'm interested in a quick show of hands from those who have beers ready now.

I don't think there is an 'other' category.
One of each from me.

Planning on bottling some of the Pils I have here for SABSOSA, I'd put a bottle in this comp for sure.

I have a FES and Oktoberfest. I'm overseas until Friday night, so if judging is in the next couple of days I won't be able to get mine in.
My shank is tiny, but seems to get the job done :-p

The info just went out on judging, in the newsletter.  How many bottles?

One  500 or 750, or two 330 per entry.

Thi post should be in the "things that make me sad" thread:

I opened one of my Oktoberfests today, totally flat. 0 carbonation. I guess I'm out of the comp on this, such a shame as it's a cracker.

Carbonation is only worth a few points, they'll still judge all the other aspects - worth entering still! Might not win with not much carbonation, but the feedback is still always incredibly valuable.
