The Kansas City Bier Meisters are hosting our 31st Annual Competition. This year's theme is "Where the Wild Beers Are". There is a special category and a special prize for any "Wild Ale". Guidelines here: http://www.kcbiermeisters.org/competitions/kcbm-competition.html#Guidlines

This year, we are partnering with Cinder Block Brewing to ramp up one lucky brewer's recipe. We are also capping the competition at 600 entries this year.

What does this mean to you? Well, we are a stop on the Midwest Homebrewer of the Year circuit, the High Plains circuit and the newly formed KC Homebrewer of the Year circuit. Also, we are filling up quickly. How quickly? The entry window opened up 5 hours ago and we are 20% full.

So if you need to get in on these circuits, want a chance to have your beer brewed on a 15 BBL commercial scale or just want these really cool BOS prizes (hopefully below), then you should get in on this soon. Enter here: http://www.kcbiermeisters.org/comp



Want to volunteer? We love taking care of our volunteers. Sub sandwiches and donuts? Not here. Smoked brisket, breakfast casserole and Waldo pizza just for taking time out of your life to help us pull this off.

Cheers!

Just entered 2 entries and paid using Paypal, but they didn't get marked paid.  I did return to the registration page after paying (and got my paypal confirmation and credit card authorized ).

I will have to ask the webmaster what our database is set to refresh at, but rest assured, your payment is in hand.

Cheers guys!

The "marked as paid" issue is an issue with the version of the BCOE we have loaded currently (BCOE&M 1.3.0.3).

Our webmaster will be updating the database later tonight/tomorrow in order to fix the bug. FYI.

Mine are now marked as paid.  Thanks and good luck to everyone who's entered.

Amanda - how close is it to filling up now?

We are at 1/3 full 30 hours into the entry window. I've never seen numbers like this.

I enter three earlier thus week. First comp ever.

Planned to do it last year, bottled em, never entered em.

Got Monday off so I'll be bottling.

Looks like the marked as paid may still be an issue but you're probably aware.

If anyone is having trouble with the comp website not remembering your password, please use Firefox or Chrome. IE does not seem to play well with the latest version of the database.

Thanks!

BTW - only 150 entry slots left.

Kevin, if you don't get first with any of your beers, I'll be hunting them down and taking them home with me. ;D I still remember your Pale Ale from last year.

Good luck!

Ok - now I am going to be suspicious if I get a bunch of second places ;) 

7th snow day this month here tomorrow... so, a good day to get bottles filled and ready to send out.  You guys did a great job with the comp. last year - looking forward to it.
