Hi Dead Yeast-

I just wanted to inform you of a competition I'm hosting. It's a Pale Ale Kit Competition, where the winner's recipe will be made in to a kit. You can brew extract or all-grain!

I would love to see some entries from over in Lafayette!

Cheers,
Aaron

THE BREWSTOCK PALE ALE KIT CONTEST!

It's simple...come up with a recipe so good everyone will want to brew it! The best part is, this contest will give them a chance to!

Compete against other homebrewers and come up with a Pale Ale recipe (extract or all-grain) worthy of being sold in stores.

Not only will your kit be sold at Brewstock (with your name on it, of course), but you'll also receive a $125 gift certificate, all the ingredients to make your kit again and a Brewstock T-Shirt!

There will only be two winners- one extract and one all-grain.

Entries are due by May 1st, so get brewin'!

Wait a minute! If you're making the recipe into a kit, why would all the ingredients need to be available at any home brew store? It seems to me you could just make up the kits and seal them.

Umm, yeah. It's supposed to be a pale ale kit, so most likely, your recipe should only have stuff you can get at a homebrew shop in it.

If you've ever done a brewing kit, of course it's all stuff you could have got off the shelf yourself. But kits are tried and true recipes, and don't require you to find a recipe or build a recipe. That's why people buy'em.

Regards,
Aaron

Roll all you want to Trip. If it's a kit, any ingredients that need to be special ordered, could be, just for making the kit up. Not that I use anything too exotic, but not all home brew stores carry the same things in stock. I suspect our LHBC is one of the less-well stocked.
Certain malts or hops may not be available "everywhere."
The point is moot anyway, as far as I'm concerned. I have no intention of lending my name to someone else's product. Too many longshot winners have been screwed. I'm not saying Brew stock would do that, but Once something is out of your control, well, you don't have any control over it.

Hey Aleguy,

When I put that stipulation in I was more referring to ingredients like 'eel tonuge' or 'strychnine.' I carry over 50 types of hops, and 75 types of grain, and all of the dry and liquid yeast known to man...so that wasn't what I was worried about.

It's just a simple contest to see who can brew the best pale ale..bragging rights, and your name on a brew kit box:)
