I think I read you just have to use one diy item.... Use their carb drops in your bottle ?

Nope 

"(i) All Samples must use a can of Coopers DIY Brewing Extract (1.7 kg) or Coopers DIY Beer Unhopped Malt Extract (1.5 kg) to a minimum ratio of 1 can per 23 Litres of Sample brewed"

It should be an X Factor type judging set up. Where we all vote on forum members contributions 

Will it be King Ruds Galactipa 

Ottos Saaz laden Pilsner

or Karlos’ inventive type beer made from fermented pizza base and garden hose

Dunno if I'd be able to replicate my pilsner in extract form, if I was to do it I'd not use a kit and Coopers don't have a pilsen malt extract tin in their range.

We've all got our favourite recipes and beers we like to make to suit our personal tastes. Although I love heavily hopped west coast IPAs I doubt that entering one in this comp would be what the judges would be after when it comes time to pick a winner. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I dare say they'll be considering other factors other than taste, in deciding what sort of beer will come out on top. The end product would have to be marketable to suit the masses, so I doubt they'll run with something that's heavily hopped or high in ABV because the punters out there won't pay the extra Johnny cash to buy it over their $45 to $50 case of megaswill.

” tastes likes flowers mate, yeah nah grab the iron jack you poof”
