Grain is in. I'm always amazed how fast the shipping is.

If you've been making some good beers with the grain buys you should consider entering Rendezbrew (and Dixie Cup). Entries need to be registered by July 3rd and dropoffs are by July 3rd at Defalcos, July 5th 11am at Brew-It-Yourself, and July 5th at B&S. We can also use all the help we can get at sorting July 6th 9am at B&S Brewers Guild and at the various judging locations. If you haven't judged before but want to learn you'll get teamed up with a BJCP certified judge that will take you through the process. Our goal is for every beer to be judge by a certified judge and we've been able to accomplish that the last 2 years. The first judging will by at my house July 7th and we'll have sessions every weekend and two big events at Saint Arnold July 21st and 28th. Judging is always a challenge. We had 600 entries last year and I expect at least that many this year. All of the homebrew clubs need help with judging and we're no different. Without the general Houston community supporting us we wouldn't be able to put on the competition. The big celebration is August 3rd. If you come, please stop by and say hello. If you do plan to come buy tickets ahead of time. It's $20 online vs $30 at the door. You get pizza, entertainment, and commercial beer and homebrew. The Foam Rangers have a good event setup a few months later that you should also check out. (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f230/dix...2013-a-387366/)

Which club are you in?
What does it take to get involved?
I may have something that I can enter; do you guys give detailed critiques for brews that do not place?

I'm with the Mashtronauts and we hold Rendezbrew. Getting involved with the club is easy. Just show up at a meeting or one of the our events. For Rendezbrew we use the standard BJCP scoresheet and you'll get 2-4 scoresheets for an entry. Our goal is for every beer to be judged by at least one BJCP certified judge. If things don't work out for entering Rendezbrew then coming to a club meeting with your beer is another option. B&S hosts our meetings the 2nd Tuesday of the month and everyone brings either homebrew or commercial beer for people to try. Just remember to tell people you want your beer critiqued otherwise they may be polite and not say as much. If that doesn't work either let me know and I'll invite you over sometime when I'm brewing and we can go through your beer. I'm a certified judge which doesn't mean I'm the greatest judge in the world, but I took a really long test.

I've decided I'm going to stop running the grain buys. Sorry for those that are looking forward to the next one, but it's too much of an effort to continue.
