Calling all Home Brewers! Preston & Steve, along with Triumph Brewery, are looking for a great home-brewed Ale! (No cheating now...) All we need to know is the type of Ale you make, the IBU, malt, hops, and a few other things about you and your beer - so stop drooling and shoot an email to Homebrew@triumphbrew.com
I gracefully withdraw my entry. Sorry Preston and Steve and Triumph, this contest is a mess.
It most certainly appears to be just that! A mess. FWIW - there's still a month left. If you care (and you keg!) that's still enough time to brew something. I brewed mine on Sunday (only because I was planning to make it for a Memorial Weekend BBQ anyway). I figured I was a 'no go' for the contest because the Apr 29th deadline passed and I didn't hear anything about my entry being accepted. Then I saw a thread on another forum re: all ~ 300 entries being accepted. 300 is still less than half the number of entries received for the bigger local contests like WOTW, Buzz Off, etc. - but those events have dozens of judges, stewards, organizers, etc and involve tons of planning.
This bound to be a clusterfck, for sure. It wouldn't surprise me if they ended up canceling the whole thing.
Anyone doin this? I entered and got the same email. Thought it might be worth a shot. But, I'm also going to the Phils game that night, so if it runs long I may need a "rep" there. Or not. I'm torn b/c it does sound like it's turned into a CF. Thoughts?
