Default Dixie Cup 2013

It's early, I know. Been brewing for about a year now, and a buddy and myself are going to start working on a few recipes for the upcoming Dixie Cup. Anyone have any pointers?

Also, when is it this year? My son's 1st birthday is on Oct. 12th and I'm really hoping it's not that weekend.

I thought the same thing. Then I went to the Foam Rangers page and the events page is under construction; most google results are articles from the 2009 cup. I'll just check with the guys at Defalcos next time I'm there and update this thread for anyone else who's interested in entering.

Did you get some good feedback from the judges?

I actually did. It was a lot better than saint Arnold BBBB. I got third place for my Apfelwien and I was really happy.

It gave me good pointers for the others I submitted. It helped me tweak some of my recipes for future remake. (Already remarking two of my beers I entered). Entered two meads, three beers and two ciders. For my jalapeno/cucumber one of the judges said there is too much jalapeno and the other said to much cucmber lol. I don't know what to do with it

Dixie and Bluebonnet are two competitions I have felt I always get great feedback on entries. Yeah, you may get the new guy/novice that is somewhat "in-training" on judging, but you're almost guaranteed to always get at least one sheet that is BJCP Recognized or higher judge.

I'm a part of the Foam Rangers. We lost a big chunk of our server and database
so we are having to build it up from backups for Dixiecup. That's why our site says under construction now. We are diligently planning this years Dixiecup though and hope to have dates nailed down soon.

I believe that would be due to Mr. Cato's passing. He used to take care of the website.

I went to the Dixie Cup last year, and if I remember right it's the 3rd weekend in October. Gonna go again - Thursday is welcome social gathering, Friday is real nice pot luck dinner, Saturday is awards and beer pairing dinner. There's also speakers Saturday morning and a pub crawl that afternoon (with chartered busses - so DUI).
See you there!
