8th Annual Big Turkey Brewing Contest: Nov 19

Post by Chris Norrick » Sun Nov 16, 2014 5:55 pm

ONLINE ENTRY FORM

Big Turkey “Scottish Ale” Brewing Contest

Entries due at the Nov. 19 Meeting
Winners announced at the Dec. 17 Party

Carson’s Brewery is sponsoring 2014 Big Turkey BOS again this year! The grand prize will be the opportunity to be “Pro-Brewer for a Day”. You will help brew your winning recipe on a commercial system! We will also have a club-wide tapping party when the beer is ready.

Judging will not occur at the meeting.
The OVHA Big Turkey brewing contest is open to all paid members of the OVHA.

The beer style for the 8th annual OVHA member’s only Big Turkey brewing contest is Scottish Ale, BJCP Category 9

Sub-styles:

9A. Scottish Light 60/-
9B. Scottish Heavy 70/-
9C. Scottish Export 80/-
9D. Irish Red Ale
9E. Strong Scotch Ale
Information about these styles can be found at the BJCP web site: BJCP Category 9

INSTRUCTIONS:

You may enter one beer in each of the subcategories. Do not enter the same beer in different subcategories.

You need two bottles of beer for each subcategory you enter. To keep things anonymous, use as plain a bottle as you can. Things like swing tops, labels, raised lettering, etc are not allowed in sanctioned competitions but will be allowed here if it is ALL you have as a last resort. Black out any markings on the cap.

Judging will be using the standard BJCP judging sheets used at all the AHA competitions and styles will each be judged within their own subcategory. It‘s up to you to pick the subcategory you want your beer to be judged against.

One winner, the Best of Show, will get their name on the Big Turkey trophy, brew their recipe at Carson’s Brewery, receive one year’s free OVHA membership, get a Big Turkey ceramic stein. Other prizes to be announced.

GOOD LUCK!
