2008 National Homebrew Competition

Postby yaturaz » Fri Feb 29, 2008 4:41 am

Has anyone entered this competition before?

I am new to the brewing scene and I have a couple beers that I would like to enter into the competition. Does anyone have a link to the guidelines of the judging? I also read that if you do win your recipe will be published. Does this mean anyone could reproduce the great beer recipe I came up with? I would rather keep my recipe for myself. Is there other competitions out there where your beer can be judged and you get to keep your recipe secret?

I think brewers tend to be pretty free about communicating their recipes, since knowing a recipe and reproducing a beer are two different things. It's considered more significant that you can brew a winning beer. Frankly, two brewers could follow the same recipe and one could come in first and the other last.

You might also get away with saying things like "2-row" and "40

I have entered the AHA's National Competition for the last 2 years and am planning of entering 2 or 3 beers for this year's competition as well. I find that it is very interesting getting feedback about my brews from the judges, and seems to help me pin-point the possible flaws and other discrepancies to the styles that I have entered. I also enter a few local competitions for the same reasons. I feel that some of the feedback I have personally received has been helpful in my quest to brew better beer. Any awards that I get is just icing on the cake, and I do have a few.

As many members of this board know, I am always willing to share any of my recipies when asked. It is my belief that "recipes don't make great beer, Brewers' make great beer." (A sound recipe helps however). I believe that if I can help a fellow home brewer make "Better Beer", then I have accomplished my task.

Without the steady flow of freely available knowledge that others have shared, i'm afraid a lot of home brewers would not be making any worth while beers to share with friends and family, without a very steep learning curve. I am still learning new techniques and tips, and have been at it for quite a few years.

I have found that mostly all homebrewers are more than willing to share their knowledge and recipes when asked. And thats just the way it should be!

Cheers!

Well I guess I shouldn't be so parinoid

Postby yaturaz » Sun Mar 02, 2008 8:34 am

I haven't been brewing that long and I really enjoy reading all the posts here on beertools. I guess if I make it to the second round I will have to disclose my recipe. I would like to open my own brew pub some day and if someone else brews my beer recipe I should be grateful.

Thank you all for your comments:)...
