I'll try to figure out where I said that...

Hyperbole and smart-ass comments notwithstanding, it is nothing more than an attempt at mining the homebrew community for fresh ideas.

Other than a $500 check, you get absolutely no recognition or credit for the fruits of your labor.

Personally, it's not about the money for me...

The plot thickens. I didn't realize it was the entire homebrew community at risk.

. . . or could it just be a publicity stunt for a radio station and small brew pub?

Yet you're the one who's worried about not profitting from your valuable recipe.

Yet you're the one who's paranoid about not profitting from your valuable recipe.

First of all, if you are going to quote me, do not do it out of context. It really is in bad form.

Second, if you are going to make assumptions about me, please give them some thought. I never said it is about the money, I said that all one gets is the money, one time, while someone else profits from it. No recognition. I'd rather they keep the money and acknowledge the person that came up with the recipe. If you have no pride in the recipes that you come up with, that is your prerogative.


It is not the whole homebrew community, just the immediate Philly/NJ/DE area

Of course it is just a publicity stunt. I listen to Preston & Steve every morning. They have a great show. In fact, I will be at the studio to see production on May 25th, the privilege won from another one of their publicity stunts.

It just begs the question of why one would have to give up the rights to one's idea. Could you possibly explain to me how there could be another reason to put a clause like that in the contest?

It is not a conspiracy, there is no plot to thicken, nobody is at risk. In fact, it is a very sound business practice and widely used in a lot of situations. Pay someone a pittance for doing the research, legwork and testing, change the name, claim it as your own (after guaranteeing that the person cannot make any future claims of intellectual property, of course) and profit from it. Capitalism at it's most glorious. I'm just not sugar coating it. It is what it is, and I'm calling a spade a spade.

You don't have to like it for it to be true and, although your lackluster attempts at mocking may be amusing for a fleeting moment, you should try using some more paranoid smilies for color and impact.

If you are worried about them stealing your recipe don't be.

Quote:
By entering, each contestant agrees that if s/he is the Grand Prize winner, s/he authorizes Triumph Brewery to use his/her submitted winning recipe to produce and sell the winning beer to the public in limited quantities, and the Grand Prize winner will not be entitled to any compensation or other consideration from Triumph Brewery for this limited use of his/her recipe. The winner will retain all other rights to the recipe.
But if you don't want to that's up to y'all better chance of me taking this thing. Also it is limited to the Philadelphia / greater Philadelphia area. I don't think you can enter Ohio. The only thing that sucks is the turn around time. You either have to have the ingredients already or order before you find out if they chose your recipe.(if you plan to order supplies)

If it is a great recipe, wouldn't you already have plans on making it?

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Either way, I'm set.

I saw it - and the way I read the rules w/ the personal info & story, they're trying to make sure they find a brewer who will be "cool" enough to represent them.

That left me out.

BTW - I'm sitting in the burgeoning metropolis of Hatfield as I'm typing this.

Yeah I'd say, what did you do burglarize a silo? My stuff should be here tomorrow, I'm just a rookie this will be my first attempt at a competition. I already had something lined up to brew but then this contest popped up and there's a recipe I've been tweaking for a couple months now, so i went with that one since it's my own.

Exactly my thought. Filled out the form and sent it, but with no embellishments. Just boring me. My only real qualification is that I like beer. Meh.
