I might be interested in stewarding or judging....but nowhere on your web page does it list the location of the judging! I live in Manchester, NH and dont' mind driving down to Mass. for something like this....but if it's going down out in the Berkshires or on the Cape or something, that's a bit far.....

I am relatively new to brewing and have not yet ventured into all grain. This sounds fun though. Is it even worth entering a Partial Mash Brew? Im not expecting much.

SamHain - all-grain has little to do with competitions (some might argue this, but all-extract and partial-mash recipes have won in national competitions quite frequently). Competitions are more about (1) brewing accurately within a particular style's guidelines and (2) quality of your brew. A poorly-made all-grain recipe will always get skunked by an all-extract with proper sanitation and good technique. But the best all-grain super-awesome-craziest beer in the world will also lose if it doesn't fit the style that it was entered in.

For most of us, competitions are more about getting useful feedback on our beers.....and a social experience at some.......actually winning something is more of a nice bonus.

Absolutely DarkBrood. Thanks for answering the question before I got to it (I been busy a few days). I do all grain now, but I entered partial mash for many years even winning a few ribbons. If you want some feedback on your brews its always good to enter some competitions.

Going to drop off an entry to Modern Homebrew Emporium in the coming week. More looking for critique than expecting a ribbon, but hey keep the expectations low right?


Cheers!

Good luck on the entry ! I have entered comps before just hoping for a "What went wrong" and came out with a ribbon.
