Default Moratorium for BJCP Winners?

Keeping on the theme of blending (and what a great thread it was/is - thank you all for your opinions) the question I have is should someone who is well renown for brewing at an amatuer level who has moved into a more celebrity role for homebrewing (ie. GABF Winner, Brewer of the Year, Ninkasi Winner, etc...) be allowed to enter BJCP contests or do you think that there should be a moratorium as to when they can get back and enter contests? (The moratorium being a length of time - sort of like Daytona when they take the winning NASCAR of the Daytona 500 and put it on display/hold for a year). Maybe just for the category s/he won? Maybe just for Brewer of the year? Maybe s/he should be automatically hired to learn how to brew professionally.

No. Anyone should be allowed to enter, regardless of their success. Keep the bar high, I say.

Willie3, you seem to like tossing live grenades onto the table and then walking out of the room.

I am with you on that. I think it would be a shame to be put on hold if I won. However, what about the really prestigious winners?

BANG! Not really. I am taking it all in. I love learning from you all. Everyone has different takes. I am a middle of the road kind of guy. These aren't meant to piss anyone off, just looking for some information to talk about with my club.

Thanks and I promise I am not out of the room, I will chime in when I can.

Where abouts are you in Georgia? Did a stint down in Hotlanta for a couple of years back in 02 - 04, loved it and miss it.

Should we have a moratorium on PGA tournament winners? Or on the Tour De France? What about on NFL teams or NHL teams? "You won the Superbowl last year? Oh, then sorry- you're out this year to be fair to the other teams."

If someone is good enough to do it, then they deserve all the accolades. It takes great talent to be that consistently amazing. Remember, the competitions are "blind", so no one knows whose beer is who's. That makes it all the more fantastic that one brewer can do it repeatedly.

No, that is a bad idea. Maybe we should just ask LeBron and Kobe to sit out next season, to give the other NBA players a chance.

Really -- we are talking homebrew competitions here. Just HOW prestigious do they really get! (Despite the gargantuan egos of certain 'homebrewing celebrities' that get bashed a lot on this and other forums.)

I vote No, because I think until you go pro, you are still on the same playing field as the rest of us.
