I'm not sure how these contests work. <rant>I guess I am concerned that some crazy Lactic Lambic or something in the "other" category made with pine nuts and lemongrass is going to win because it is so far away from a real category that it can't be rated </endrant>

But I'm Canadian, I'm fine with anything.

I like the idea of Yooper or whomever may be non-biased (ie someone with some 3 year old barleywine that has won 6 competitions) picking 1 or 2 classes. Then we we choose to submit to that, or just to submit whatever we have for best in show.

Ah hell, Even if we have a Canadian contest, I think we should still invade the border and win the HBT contest.

Maybe one of those smuggler tunnels.... Though my favorite smuggling idea is giant catapult and parachutes. This is also my favorite travel method.

Well, if I'm going to be filling bottles anyway....

So what's the penalty for shipping yeast samples suspended in brewer's wort across the border? Heck, I didn't know you couldn't do that!

Whatever you guys want to do is ok with me.

I need to address the concern that a weirdo beer can win BOS. I understand that concern, but these WILL be judged according to BJCP guidelines and scored that way. So, if you get a 25 on your lemongrass/coriander/wheat whatever, there is no way it would win anything. If you make a beer that scores a 47, well, yeah, then you can plan on winning.

I just don't want to leave anybody out because they brewed a fantastic oaked beer that doesn't fit in the two or three categories we might pick.

The judge said he's ok with all kinds of different styles, and would judge them according to the style guidelines. The highest scoring beers would be awarded the prizes. Everyone would get back their scoresheets, of course.

I'm going to apologize in advance to whoever the judge is. I'm thinking of sending a beer with a really weird taste, just because I want to know what it is

Why don't you post a poll? We could vote on styles and add a 'freestyle' category to the list. We may be worrying about something that won't be happening. If there is interest in dandelion catfish beer we address it then.

I would be ok with either of the ideas.

- agree on three styles and compete head to head

- enter any style and be awarded points against that style. The beer that scored the highest wins the competition.

I think we need a count of approx how many would be entering a Canadian contest before we dicide on what kind of competition. Ie 3 styles etc.

I've been updating a list in the top post as people chime in. If anyone wants their name added (or removed) please post or PM me!

I also agree we should see what interest is first. Certain formats of competition may not make sense for the number of entries I would imagine.

This is a great idea. I am still a noob but would love to try a competition, worst case I get some great feedback to improve my brew for next time.

I am in. Any ideas as to when this comp may take place? I am almost done my all grain rig build. This would be a great test.


Cheers
