I've got a biere de garde and a triple in bottles for next years comps. I'll probably enter my wit but will wait until much closer till brewing it.

I might throw my RIS in the hat, good think I won't have to compete against BP in the first round, though, otherwise I'd have absolutely no chance. I'm going to tweak and re-brew my APA from last year and re-enter that, but that doesn't need too long to age, so I have a little bit of time. I might enter anything else I have laying around the house, but I'm not pushing for anything. I wish I had more 12 oz. bottles of my 2006 barleywine, I think it could really well in an old ale category as enough bitterness aged out of it that I think it could do really well. Oh well, you live and you learn I suppose.

I'm going to try to get the Vanilla Caramel Cream Ale ready to compete as a 23a Specialty Beer. Depending on how my Weizen ages, it might go in the competition as well. I don't have any other recipes that I'll feel comfortable submitting, unless I get off my ass and brew a lot this winter.

Is that going to be in May again?

There’s a local comp here in December that is the final qualifier for the (Tenth) Annual Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing.

I have 9 entries and depending on the feedback, I might have time to tweak a new recipe (nothing real big) just in time.

If you have a brew why not send it into the comp? With as many members as this forum has we should take best club every year.

I just went and bought my two bushels of roasted green chile so I can make my annual roasted green chile beer. I will freeze a few chiles for my comp. beer to be brewed early nex year.

I guess when you get to be old and narrow like me it is good to have a project!

Cheese, get off your butt and make some beer for the nationals! And bring a few with you so I can taste some.

You are way ahead of me. I'm not sure if I'll have any ready for the nationals...
