I emailed them and it is one entry per person. Hopefully a number of people will participate to encourage this to be an annual event.

State College homebrewer here. Just bottled my first batch and am starting a new one on Saturday. I have heard a good place for grains is Elk Creek Cafe. It's a bit of a drive, but a buddy of mine that is an advanced brewer gets stuff from them. Also, Otto's is great for yeast.

Like I said, I'm new to this and am already hooked. Might look into kegging equipment here soon.

I only bottle so am no expert on kegging but I'd say try pour a jug of beer as cold as possible and without generating a head in order to keep as much CO2 in solution as possible then fill a clean and sanitized bottle, cap and cool ASAP. If you do this on Sat am your beer should be fine for judging.

The right way would be using a Blichmann Beer Gun or similar but my guess is you do not have one of those - maybe try borrow one if someone in Happy Valley has one?

Chattan,

I recently heard an old Brewing Network show in which Gordon Strong and Tasty McDole discussed their method, which was something along the lines of pour from tap into a cold bottle, then cap on foam. It was an old one, I think around the NHC in 2009 if you want to search their archive.

Good luck!

Lots of people do this we no need no stinking beer gun. Put your bottles in the freezer ahead of time to minimize foaming.

I've done this before. I now use a beer gun, which unfortunately I'm not prepared to lend out THIS week. I've got to bottle up a beer myself and I've got family in town so I don't know when I'll have a chance to bottle. We have family plans every night this week. If I get it done sooner rather than later, I'll let you know. It might not happen until Sat. morning though.

I just joined the CC Black Hops Unit and there is a thread about a logo. They did start the thread earlier this year, but i am not sure if it went anywhere. you should join and post your logo.

I will be moving to the State College/Boalsburg/Lemont area shortly and would be interested in joining a club. I am the President of my local club where I live now, and can probably offer some advice to help move the State College club from fledgling to a bona fide club. Let me know how I can get in touch with anyone from the State College club.
