Pilsner Urquell Master Homebrewer Competition
« on: April 08, 2011, 08:34:04 AM »
Anyone here plan on entering? It's limited to the first 50 entries in each region. Grand prize is a trip to Prague. I threw my name in the hat... http://www.facebook.com/PilsnerUrquellUSA#!/PilsnerUrquellUSA?sk=app_4949752878 or http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/pilsner-urquell-unveils-master-home-brewer-competition-119402589.html

looks like a cool competition.  I brew a pretty decent CP, but I know it can't hang with the sharks that comp will likely draw.

It would be SOOO awesome if someone won with a single infusion...

Someone did in NYC - me!  No decoction, but did do a multi-step mash
