TITLETOWN OPEN REGISTRATION INFORMATION

E-mail Print PDF

YES, it is that time of year again. It is time for judges and stewards to register for the 21st annual Titletown Open Homebrew Competition.

There are some changes in the website this year. There is a new cloud-based system that is similar to the BCOEM that we used last year, but is, I think, more user friendly.

  1. Go to http://brewscene.com/
  2. Register as a user (it is FREE.)
  3. Once you are registered, you can search for competitions. You will find the TTO in there.
  4. Sign up to steward or judge (if you are a judge.) THERE ARE SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES, INCLUDING WEEKDAY EVENINGS SINCE WE ARE SPREADING THE JUDGING OUT.
  • Round 1 - Wed, April 22nd, 6:00 PM
  • Round 2 - Thurs, April 23rd, 6:00 PM
  • Round 3 - Fri, April 24th, 6:00 PM
  • Round 4 - Sat AM, April 25th, 8:00 AM
  • Round 5 - Sat PM, April 25th, 12:00 PM

Please register well before the April 11th meeting! Max will want to fill any gaps we may have at that time. There are some significant changes to the timeline this year as well. We are bringing in all of the beers and doing registration a full week BEFORE contest week. This will allow the contest organization and committee sufficient time to make sure we get everything right due to our moving to new facilities for this event.

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENTER YOUR BEERS UNTIL APRIL 1ST. That is when the registration window opens. I will ask El Presidente to email to the club members your DISCOUNT CODE that you will need so that your first entry will be free. The fee for all other entries remains $4.00 per entry.

ON SITE REGISTRATION WILL BE ON MONDAY, APRIL 13TH at Titletown Brewing company from 5 PM until 8 PM. No entries will be accepted after that time.

SORT DAY will be SATURDAY, April 18th from 1 PM - 6 PM at the big brewery. 

JUDGING days as noted above. If you are judging only the Sat PM round, you will need to get there by 11:30 AM to be sure of getting your lunch.

Contact Michael Conard if you have any questions!

Style Of The Month

E-mail Print PDF

FROM: Shawn L.

Hey Rackers. A little heads up on the Style of the Month that we try to do for the business meetings.

For those of you who don't know what the Style of the Month is, its pretty simple. We have a few beer styles laid out for particular monthly meetings, that hopefully us members will brew and bring along to the corresponding meeting and talk about them. This is not a competition or anything. Just a way to broaden both our beer knowledge, but also our homebrewing knowledge as well.

Anyone is welcome to brew any of the styles. Use any technique, any style of brewing.
Are you a classic recipe brewer? Great! Got a new twist or new angle on that old beer? Awesome! Brew it. Maybe jot down a note or two and bring it to the meeting.

We have heard from a few members that they didn't know where to find the styles coming up or that they were not all that familiar with some of the styles.

Well luckily, we have a few very good options. We already have the styles posted for the next year or more on the http://rackers.org/ site. The Forum here is a great place to ask any questions about not only the "SotM" beers, but any beer, wine, cider topic you want.

Plus, if you haven't already liked us on the Green Bay Rackers Home Brew Club Facebook Page, then go check it out. We post reminders there as well. And will try to throw a little more info out there about upcoming styles and time frames

I would encourage us as members to use these sites as they really can help in sharing information, and to get any info or help you may need. And also, it helps just to keep in touch in between the meetings.

With that in mind, here is the 2015 Style of the Month brews

2015

APRIL - Maibock
JUNE - Belgian Blonde
AUGUST - Cider
OCTOBER - IPA
DECEMBER - Old Ale (might want to consider starting this one a few months ahead of time.)
