Did anyone hear about this?

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...119402589.html

After having brewed my first lager, this sounds like an interesting challenge. Its gotta be tough to judge 50 czech pilsners side by side and come up with a winner.

Yeah, they posted it on BA yesterday as well. It's only open to the first 50 in each city..

Also, think about what you're getting into by making a Czech Pils.

Sent my name in, we'll see if I made the 50 person cut for NYC...

I guess I had better brew a Czech Pilsner this weekend so it will be ready by August....

I'm trying to get in at NYC as well. I just kegged up a Czech pils. Now I might just go ahead and brew another.

Just got my reply from Pilsner Urquel USA, I'm in.

I guess I had better do this one right. I'm wondering if I should use a bottled water source instead of my filtered Jersey water. Any thoughts?

I figure I'll use sodbuster's decoction instructions. Luckily, I have about 35lbs of pilsen left so I can do a few batches and submit the best. It's not like it won't get consumed

Mischief: I see your in Sayreville, do you know where your water comes from and the stats? I'm in South Jersey, and my water comes from the Potomac Raritan Aquifer and is really soft and close to pilsen water profile. I just brewed a czech pilsner that came out very well, and I'm looking at this contest as well.

I submitted my name but when they replied I realized you have to actually go to one of the cities to enter. Guess I won't be entering
