Postby jimmiec » Mon Feb 25, 2013 12:53 pm

The 2013 Louisiana Homebrew Clubs Brewing Competition!

Welcome Louisiana Home Brewers!
The Dead Yeast Society homebrew club will be hosting the 2013 Louisiana Homebrew Club's Brewing Competition. This a great opportunity for the Louisiana homebrew clubs to get together to discuss homebrew, get feedback on our brewing, and get to know each other. The competition is open to all brewers and follows Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) guidelines. Note that the BJCP guidelines have been modified to accept only the listed categories (1, 10, 12, and 15). Early mail-in and drop-off entries will be accepted from Friday March 8th through Friday April 12th with the judging and awards on Saturday April 13, 2013.

Judging and Stewarding
All judging will be held April 13th at 10 am April 13th at Cajun Brewing in Lafayette. Judges and stewards of all levels and experience are welcome. If you are willing to judge or steward, please email la.homebrew.comp2012@gmail.com. The competition is registered with the BJCP so registered judges and stewerds should receive BJCP points.

Entries
In order to make this competition a manageable size, we have limited the entries to four of the BJCP categories and are listed below. We are accepting only one entry per person or team per subcaterogry. Follow the following links for details of subcatergories and descriptions.

    Categories for the 2013 Competition:

    Entry Information:
      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. Each sample should have a Bottle ID Form (click to download PDF) attached to the bottle via a rubber band. Please indicate on the Bottle ID form the category and subcategory the entry should be judged as.

      2. Early mail-in and drop-off entries will be accepted from Friday March 8th through Friday April 12th and should be sent to:

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

      At Cajun Brewing, we will accept late entries on Saturday April 13th, between 9 and 10 am. It would be appreciated that a copy of the Bottle ID form be email ahead of time ( by April 11) to la.homebrew.comp2012@gmail.com (same email as last years). Entries should not be mailed to Cajun Brewing.

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

Event
This years event will be held on Saturday April 13 at the Cajun Brewing (address listed below). We will BBQ or do something for food. Anybody is welcome to help with the preparation / donation of food. However, please try to email la.homebrew.comp2012@gmail.com so we can coordinate some. We will try to do a raffle again this year.

    April 13, 2012 at 10 am
    Time: 10 am (Judging) and approximately 4 pm (Awards)
    Cajun Brewing
    206 Rayburn Street
    Lafayette, LA 70506

Awards
1st, 2nd, & 3rd place awards will be issued for each category (Categories 1, 10, 12, and 15).

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.

Have the points for the judges been registered with BJCP yet? They don't (as of yet have mine).

Yes the XML was submitted April 22 and got confirmation from David Houseman that it was received and correct. At the time of submittal, I did not have a Judge ID number for you. I didn't think you had one yet. I can follow up with David if you have a judge ID.

I'm one point from Certifed, so if you could contact the BJCP via email and give them my judge number and vouch that I judged I would be grateful. 8)
