Your Brown Porter is way to heavy for style. You can be a bit off, but I think they will notice a 1.081.

You may be better served to enter that as a Baltic Porter, or at least a robust, although it would be a bit heavy there as well.

That's great advice Zen Brew. Remember, you can enter your beer in any category, not just the one you were trying to make.

I entered an American Pale Ale and a Belgian Blonde. Not quite ready, but I felt kinda guilty taking up 3 reservations and not giving them anything. I held off on the Porter- ya, it's a bit big- I beefed up my original recipe just for the hell of it. But ya, the grand prize is absolutely insane! I gotta find more out there like that. Have you been to HomeBrewMart lately? The renovation is awesome!

Zen, you're right on. I learned that the hard way, after entering 2 beers in a past contest that I was pleased to have received very positive comments, but I was told they should have been entered into different categories.
