I feel like I'm all grown up now. Deadline for this contest is on Friday. I just finished (6 hours....) of prepping 12 beers and the requisite paperwork for this contest. It will be my first AHA/BJCP contest. I am very excited! It will be great to get some good feedback and hopefully since I submitted so many darn things I will have a chance at some type of placement.


I was really surprised how much paperwork and prep there was for this, with the blacking out of bottle caps, the labels, the recipes, etc. I guess I jumped in pretty deep by submitting 12 different beers. Good thing I kept good notes on all of these! A lot of them are based on HBT recipes, including 2 variants of Apfelwein!

Anyone else on here in the Fall Classic?

Oh, and this is pretty cool:

Chad Kennedy of Laurelwood Brewing Co. is going to select one beer out of all of the category winners that compete in best of show to brew at Laurelwood. In other words, if your beer wins a gold and advances to the best of show round, then it might be picked.

Oh what a lot of time I wasted yesterday! This email came through this morning:

Hi Everyone,

I just noticed that the new BJCP entry form has a whole section devoted for entering the recipe and other brewing specifics. I really have no idea why they think that is important and we certainly will not be referencing that information in the Fall Classic competition. Feel free to leave everything in the "Ingredients and Procedures" section (below the dotted line) blank if you want. If Laurelwood picks your gold medal beer for brewing we will get that info later.

Cheers,

Thats weird, that entry form has always had the recipe fields on it for as long as I've been entering competitions (2007).

Congrats Tim!! I ended up placing with 4 of my beers, #1 in ipa, #3 in specialty cider, #3 american ale, and #3 amber hybrid.

I don't know which of my 2 ipas got it yet... but I'm thinking it's my version of EdWort's Bee Cave IPA. The shocker there is that I bottled it SEVEN MONTHS AGO, which if it won, kinda flies in the face of "drink ipas young".
