The NHC online registration that was supposed to open Tuesday, February 28, will be available at 10 a.m. Mountain Time on Friday March 2, 2012 instead. I apologize for the delay, and I appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.
The online registration will be available from 10 a.m. MT, March 2 through 6 p.m. MT March 28, 2012. There is an additional competition added this year, so there should be room for everyone to enter. Each of the 10 U.S. competitions has a maximum limit of 750 entries. Once the entry limit has been reached in a competition, the competition will be closed to any further entries. See the top story on the AHA home page for tips to entering online, and look in the 2012 NHC Rules & Regulations for information about the competition.
Good luck in the competition!
entries were open for 3 days, if you didn't get in you either only have yourself to blame or have something far more pressing than a homebrew competition going on
Question: About what % of entries come from non-AHA members?
I'm not 100% certain, but I think you have to be an AHA member to enter.
They allow non-members to enter but the fee goes up.
AHA memebers: $10
If it grows too much, they'll have to break the first rounds into regions, then a semi-final round, then the finals. March Madness of Homebrewing. Can you imagine what that bracket would look like?
Another reason to brew is to make some beers that are not available. A CAP? How about a Graetzer? Those have turned out "yummy".
I also remember orval being fermented with a relatively clean yeast and bottled with brett.
Yes I was able to get a hold of their strain(WLP515) Belgian Bastogne Ale. I was going to Brett in the secondary as opposed to bottles. I may make a starter to double to cell count and pitch half into each secondary carboy.
And under no circumstances would I want the AHA giving my contact info to anyone, for any reason.
I would say you could expand this discussion to include American Stout.
Question: How would perfect clones of Deschutes Obsidian Stout or Rogue Shakespeare Stout fair in competition as American Stout?
I think the feedback on these "classic examples" would very often include that they needed hops...
Only DH mentioned low hop character as an issue...
