Big brew home brew question
March 25, 2019
I was just wondering about with competition, I had seen a homebrewer could get a table and hand out there beer but there wasn’t really a big list of rules as I seen just wondering if there was more literature on it. As I read it says I could get a table and serve my beer in 1 to 2 oz samples and have jars to be judged if I want and bring the beer in any way I see fit. I only ask because I’m very interested and would love to do this but don’t have a jockey box so I couldn’t bring kegs I would have to either can or bottle my beer and serve it like that, also do you have to brew also or no. Then I seen it said 1 person to a table didn’t know if my spouse could be with me, and lastly is there a limit on how much beer or how many one could bring also could one bring stickers to hand out.
You are welcome to bring bottles. In order to win you will need votes.
If I remember correctly from counting the votes last year, the winner had about 120 votes. That would be about two gallons of beer if every one voted for that beer that sampled it. We know this is not the case. So most people bring about 5 gallons of each beer. You don’t want to run out mid festival and not get any more votes.
There is plenty of space bring your wife. the tables are long like 8′.
You are not required to brew on site you can take the wort home. but it sour quickly if not used, the wort is boiled the night before and cooled to 40F.
Left over wort goes back to the brewery.
Bring any type of home made beer, mead or wine. there is no limit.
bring anything you want to hand out.
