OK, so I made a strawberry wheat beer that I am confused as to whether I can enter it into a homebrew competition as anything other than category 20 (Fruit Beer). Here is the recipe:

Grains: (Single Infusion Mash @152 for 75 min; Sparge @ 168 for 15 min; 75% Eff)
5 lbs Pale Malt (2-Row)
4 lbs White Wheat Malt
8 oz Crysal 20L
8 oz Flaked Wheat
4 oz Dextrine Malt

Other Fermentables:
4 lbs Strawberries (Blended and added at 2 week in secondary)

Hops:
16.5 IBU
1.0 oz Williamette 5.0% AA (Boil 60 Minutes)

Dry Hop:
None

Yeast:
Safale S-04 11.5 g Packet (Sprinkled)


So can this beer be entered into a general wheat beer category? Can I submit this beer into two categories at the same competition? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Nope, it's a Fruit beer, seems pretty cut and dried. Many cops have rules against entering the same beer in different categories unless there's some change made, like a split fermentation, wood aging, or Brett added.

Don't enter as anything other than a fruit beer. If you enter out of category, you will lose points for the fruit not being to style. Just be sure to indicate your base beer as 6D American Wheat or Rye Beer.
