The 2012 Louisiana Homebrew Clubs Brewing Competition!

Welcome Louisiana Home Brewers!
The Dead Yeast Society homebrew club will be hosting the 2012 Louisiana Homebrew Club's brewing competition. This competition is open to any member of a Louisiana-based homebrew club. You can find the complete rules and details at Chaotic Brewing or Louisiana Homebrewers. By popular request, we have extended the deadline to 10 am on March 31, 2012. The March 31 drop-off entries, should be dropped off at Cajun brewing between 9 and 10 am with entry form completed. It would be appreciated that a copy of the entry form be email ahead of time (before March 30) to la.homebrew.comp2012@gmail.com. Judging for the 2012 Louisiana Homebrew Clubs Brewing Competition will be held 10 am March 31st at Cajun Brewing in Lafayette. Entries should not be mailed to Cajun Brewing. The address is provided for those who wish to attend the event and drop off entries on March 31 (between 9 and 10 am).

Judging
March 31, 2012
Time: 10 am (Judging) and approximately 330 pm (Awards)
Cajun Brewing
206 Rayburn Street
Lafayette, LA 70506

In order to make this competition accessible to the largest amount of brewers, we have limited our style selections to only ale categories. With the large selection of quality malt extracts, we feel that any of these styles can be successfully brewed as extract beers to be competitive in this event.

Categories for the 2012 Competition:

Entry Process:
    1. Contestants must submit three (3) samples of each beer that is being entered. The samples should be in plain, unmarked, brown 12 oz. longneck bottles with a plain bottle cap. Printed bottle caps should be blacked out with a permanent marker to ensure anonymity. Samples should be sent to:

      Marcello's Wine Market
      C/O The Deadyeast Society
      2800 Johnson St.
      Lafayette, LA 70503

    2. Entries will be accepted beginning Friday, February 24th. The deadline for your submissions is Monday, March 26th. By popular request, we have extended the deadline to 10 am on March 31, 2012. The March 31 drop-off entries, should be dropped off at Cajun brewing between 9 and 10 am with entry form completed. It would be appreciated that a copy of the entry form be email ahead of time (before March 30) to la.homebrew.comp2012@gmail.com.

    3. There is a $5 entry fee for each beer submission. Contestants are not limited to the number of categories entered.

    4. Each submission should have an official Bottle Identification Form attached to the bottle via a rubber band. The form should be filled in, and a corresponding Entry/Recipe Form should be included in the packaging. A check or money order should also be included (make payable to Dead Yeast Society). Total your entry fees and make the check or money order for that amount. Please do not send cash through the mail.

Awards
1st, 2nd, & 3rd place awards will be issued for each category.

Packing and Shipping hints:

Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Do not over pack! Write clearly: "Fragile. This Side Up." on the package. Your package should weigh less than 25 pounds. Please refrain from using messy packaging materials such as styrofoam peanuts or pellets; the preferred packaging material is bubble wrap.
Place entry forms and payment in a sealed zip-top bag. Additionally, enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which beer has broken if there is damage during shipment.

Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.
It is not against any Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) regulations or federal laws to ship your entries via privately owned shipping company for analytical purposes. However, IT IS ILLEGAL TO SHIP ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES VIA THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE. Private shipping companies have the right to refuse your shipment if they are informed that the package contains glass and/or alcoholic beverages. It is solely the entrant's responsibility to follow all applicable laws and regulations.

Need Help?

Postby S. Parks » Wed Mar 21, 2012 5:46 pm

I will definitely be there. I'm working on my BJCP, but not yet certified. I'll make it there early (Gene said he'd the there by 7:00) and help in any way I can. :P :P :P I need some room in my beer storage fridges, so I'll bring plenty of Home brew to share.

Hey!

Patti and I thoroughly enjoyed the comp. Excellent food, great prizes and good folks.

I was hanging out at the table out back, and Gene gave me some of the best advice I've ever had. He said "Have a cupcake."
