  1. That doesn't matter. There's a lot that go right and wrong making a kit beer. The judges don't know. They are served tasters.
  2. Exactly. You will either get a nice surprise or get constructive feedback on the judge's score sheets. Winning beers go on to Nationals.
  3. Hi Phil. It's been running for 22 years. The entries are usually around the 360 mark - so yes, there are a lot of SA brewers entering. It's all grain, kit, bits... whatever you want as long as it's homebrewed. Enter a beer and you might be surprised or at least get constructive feedback. It's run by the SA Brew Club. There's a lot of knowledge there.
  4. Hi, The entry portal for the 2021 SA State Amateur Brewing Competition is open for entries. The deadline for entry is 6pm, Friday August 13 and bottle drop by COB at supporting venues on Friday or at the Irish Club in the city on Saturday between 11 am and 1pm.All the details on the website www.sabsosa.com.au
  5. The State Amateur Brewing Show of South Australia needs no introduction to most SA brewers. It is SA's premier amateur brewing competition and is open to all non-professional brewers in this state. This year is its 21 year.Entries are open now at SABSOSA.com using the online competitions portal. Beers can be entered now and additional ones later with PayPal and credit cards accepted for the $5 entry fee. Entries close on August 24 and can be dropped off at a number of locations around Adelaide. Judging is on September 1-2 at the German Club.The competition that began in 1997 has been going from strength to strength over recent years and in 2018 entries are forecast to be the largest yet. This month the competition affiliated with SA's biggest brewing clubs, SA Brewing Club (SABrew.com) to help it grow.Everyone is encouraged to enter a beer or two. The possibility of winning a category is high but the experience and feedback from judges are also invaluable to keep improving your beer. This competition is SA's qualifying competition for the Australian Amateur Brewing Competition. 1st, 2nd & 3rd placegetters in each SABSOSA category get to vie for national glory.A couple of points worth noting: The preferred bottle size is 750mL but 500 ml or two 375mL firmly bound together are also accepted but be aware this is the last year two 375ml bottles will be accepted. Judging Guidelines, as used nationally, can be found on either sabsosa.com or aabc.org.au
  6. I can see the appeal of a smaller fermenter. I was wondering about the cans. There isn't any specified other fermentables like the BE1 or 2? Would I be right in guessing that the North West Pale Ale would be like a Sierra Nevada Pale? Also, on the Craft Series page the thumbnail shows four cars, but there are only three featured - Pale, Dark and Golden. What's the fourth can?
  7. I like the recipe page, really clear and I especially like the simple print option. I saw something I liked, printed, took it to my LHBS and was sorted in no time at all.
