Homebrew recipes are a dime a dozen. If you were good enough of a brewer to come up with a recipe that can win a major contest like that, then you should have no problem coming up with several more.

Come on guys, it's not like giving away your first born male child...it's a beer recipe. A few tweaks here or there and the recipe is different enough that you can call it your own again and still win contests or brew it at your "future" brewery.

If you think you have a really great beer recipe, I encourage you to enter it in the contest. The feedback alone is worth the effort. Just in case you don't win, you can take the feedback and make the beer better next time.


I totally agree...

That being said, the only thing that I have available is my Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter. I found out today that the new seasonal is going to be a Vanilla Porter :? oh well...

BTW the Abita Vanilla Porter will be in honor of Tracy Porter's Superbowl winning interception and will be named "Pick-six Porter" ...brilliant!

I'm in it for the free beer, especially the cask conditioned.

I totally agree it would be very cool to win, maybe a club entry would be also very cool

I spent the better part of two years of home brewing to develop some of my recipes. If I was pulling a recipe off the internet to enter, fine, but I think those of us who have actually put in the work to get a recipe where we want it, starting from scratch, don't really feel that they are a dime a dozen. It takes a lot of hard work and tweaking to get a recipe to the point where you are happy with it, and to just give that away and try to tweak it again to "call it your own" is ridiculous.
Enter away, if that's what you want to do. I for one value the time I've spent developing my recipes far more than what Abita is offering. Though many, if not most, club members use other peoples' recipes, that is something I almost never do.
Go, enter, enjoy.

I'm planning on going. Same situation as 0006. If anyone wants to carpool, I'm willing to, although I wouldn't mind carpooling in someone else's car that gets better gas mileage than my beast an chipping in for gas.

Sorry guys, the only way I get to go is if I take the kids to a corn maze over in Pine Grove on Saturday. Unless it rains.
