..what are you doing?

I am entering at least 2 this year. A Lake Walk Pale Ale, and a Watermelon Wheat.

I'm planning on brewing them here in the next couple of weeks.

I'm curious to hear what you guys have planned and when you plan on brewing them to get them ready by the April send in date.

Well, I have a couple I've been thinking about. I think I am just a little intimidated by entering a contest. It's hard enough for me to send you guys a couple of beers to critique! I'm always afraid no one will like it!

I'm thinking that I'll brew tons in the next two weeks, and see what I like. I have a steam beer I'm doing again, and a Maibock that will be young in April, but ready by, well, May. The hops shortage had changed every one of my recipes! I'd like to do the DFH clone again but I'm not sure I can get all the hops I want.

So, probably the Maibock, and maybe an amber (a take off on the FT clone), and possibly the steam beer (california common). I have an all-chinook sort of AB thing that I might enter if I could figure out what style it would be.

I've got a few that I'll be sending in.

This also bring up another question about having beer ready for the conference. What (and who) are we going to brew to club night and how are we going to serve it?

With all of these people, we prolly have a legit shot at winning the biggest club award....and possibly the most beer kegs.

I'll start another thread on that.

You know, I hate to suggest yet another new thread- but we need to do that. I've never been to a NHBC before, so I really need some ideas and guidance. What are we doing? Shirts? Club night? food? Beer?

I can bring a keg or two, but not my co2 tank and regulator. (Unless I can scrounge up another before then).

Dude- you've been there before (and I know a few others, too, of course) but could you help take the lead on some organizing or at least get us started? I have no idea what to expect, and I'm about 900 miles from Cincy.

EDIT- Dude is obviously gifted in ESP and knew what I was going to ask.

Certainly...I've been to 2 of them and have worked a booth both times. I started a NHBC planning thread:

Depends on how some of these recent batches turn out. I bottled a smoked lager this past weekend, and am really impressed so far (like a cross between anchor xmas and sam adams winter lager)--though it'd go into a specialty category because of the smoke and the allspice. We'll have to see. I've got a bunch of other stuff that's newly bottled that I might submit, but I really don't know if I'm into it this year.

I'm picking him up on my way. He doesn't know that yet, but I agree, he's going.

I was more referring to submitting stuff for competition---yeah, I'm still planning on going. And yeah, Dude, I'll hitch with you and help with gas if you'll have me. What's up with booking rooms? Am I late on that?
