Louisiana club only competitition

Postby Imakewort » Tue Oct 21, 2008 10:13 pm

we have a Louisiana club only competition coming up, I talked to the Pres, of the Redsticks and we came to a agreement for a statewide competition, the style will be negotiated soon. There will be only 4 or 5 styles, and we will have a trophy to be held by the winning club. Do you think we are up to it? It should be held in March.

How about gluten free pale ale?
By the way, aren't we supposed to hold a 10a/10b club-only competition about now to find the next "opener?"

Yuck! After that horrible stuff we tried yesterday, I can't believe you would suggest that.

What the redsticks and us plan on doing is we each pick 3 and then draw from a hat and each club can pick 1 style I choose a lager, Helles dortmunder style 1D 1E.

That's fine Igor, but if you choose a lager, most of the club won't be able to participate. Only a few of us have the equipment necessary for lagering, I'm not one of them, since until recently I had zero interest in brewing anything that requires lagering. Since I learned that Belgian ales need lagering, I'm thinking about it, but it's still a long way off.
Anyway, my point is, if you expect a lot of participation in this competition, you should stick to ales.

look at the pale ale recipe thread I posted a link to a sight that tracks hops and tells you either pellet or leaf and where they are.

I agree that lagers would be a bit unfair.
At least with an ale everybody will have the opportunity to participate.
I vote American Brown.
