Home Brewer competition at NC State Fair 2012
Hey all. Not sure if this is news to everyone or not, but wanted to share anyhow. Looks like home brewers as well as commercial brewers will be able to compete at the 2012 NC state fair this year.

Does anyone plan on entering? If so just curious how many entries and what catagories you plan on entering.

I just found out the other day and intend to get a bunch of members from our club here in Wilmington to enter. I haven't even begun to decide what to enter though.

I'm strongly considering putting in a Kolsch i just finished, but i'm thinking it won't even place. Still, paying 10 bucks to be my beer professionally judged isn't that bad. Because I don't have a secondary fermenter, its somewhat cloudy; but the flavor and color seem right on.

My RIS came out more like a Foreign Extra, so I'm going to enter it in that. As you say, matt, professionally judged is loads helpful. w000000000t for beer in the state fair!

I'm planning on entering a Belgian saison.

My husband & I are entering an Original Bitter, and a Lavender Wit. I'm honestly trying to game the categories that might have fewer entries... I love that the prize is eight bucks.

Don't forget, next friday is last day for submitting your entries!

Oh man, here we go. I'm waiting on tenterhooks to see how my imperial stout did! I entered it as an imperial after all, because after carbonation the hops came out a little better, and it's well over the 8% upper limit of the Foreign Extra (10% ABV!). Best luck to you all!
