I'm lucky enough to be brewing for this season's Manhattan/Brooklyn Wort contest in NYC. I'm wondering if any of the other brewers are on here also? I'd love to know what others are brewing or planning on brewing for the event. I have my competition lager fermenting right now. I'd be happy to share more details or post the recipe if other competitors would do the same. The idea is to win with the best beer on your merits. I think if you are confident in your skills and have a spirit of competition you won't mind sharing information. If you're not comfortable with it, that's cool too.

I see some lookers but no posters. Would it help if I post my recipe first?

A Co-brewer and I were chosen for Manhattan Wort as well. Brewed two beers, waiting to see how they come out.

Anybody else brewing for the contest? Even if you don't want to reveal you recipe, what styles are people going for?
