I'm brewing an Irish Red Ale. (Heating up strike water)
Using BeerSmith2, I started with an Irish Red Ale that I created based on BJCP Guidelines. Then, I changed the beer style to American IPA and tried to get everything within that guideline. So, I basically turned an Irish Red Ale into an Irish Red IPA. I have high hopes for this beer. I think it will turn out delicious.
But, I may want to submit it to competitions. So, since it's technically an American IPA minus American Ale yeast, I probably won't be able to submit it to American IPA competitions. I'm using White Labs Irish Ale Yeast for this beer. Yes, I'm doing this to experiment but also, St. Patty's Day is near.
How do I submit this to competitions assuming it going to come out to be delicious? Or, do I have to find one of the "creative competitions"?
