Were the rules finalized in December?  Doesn't appear the competition web site has been updated yet.

Does anyone know what they are brewing? I was a partial mash brewer last year and now all grain and having a little trouble updating my recipes

Well done.  I got 2 silvers and 1 bronze last year.  Im only going to brew 1 of those recipes again (lemongrass hefeweizen).  Trying to make the switch from Partial Mash to All Grain. so we will see how that goes.  Not sure what else Im going to brew.

Can you use bottles that have a commercial breweries logo embossed in the actual glass?  For example, sam adams or boulevard bottles.  There isn't any other labels other than the glass

I think this covers it " Bottles with raised lettering are acceptable if they fit in a standard case box slot."
