So I'm looking to enter 2-4 homebrew contests this year. I think I have an elementary understanding of the process.
Fill out the entry forms for the respective contest and follow the directions of the contest. Mail them in during the acceptance period. Wait.
Is it really that simple? Are there any unwritten codes, etiquette, or guidelines that I should be aware? Are there some contests that you just don't enter as a first timer?
I'm currently looking at the Schooner in Wisconsin and the MN State Fair primarily cause the dates work out for me and I live in MN and will more than likely go to the State Fair.
Do you have to attend these competitions or just send in your beer and await results?
