Thats awesome, which ones are your first time submissions?

I have an american pale ale that will be a first for me, and my robust porter as well.

I also have a lite lager, oktoberfest and saison that will be first submissions but they won't be ready in time for the Calgary competition.

That sounds great. :cheers2:

Pilsner Myquell, Brit Bit, G'day and G'day raspberry, and More are all new. Anxious to see how they get on. I think More, brit and myquell are good and the G'days might be not such G'days, but you never know. I might have that backwards. It's a crap shoot as LiverDance says.

I've come to the conclusion that unless I get a second job I'll not be competing any time soon.

"Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain -
Quaintest thoughts - queerist fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today." ~ Poe

Yup! I'm really debating this one only working part time as a full time student and paying to live in two cities makes it tough.. well who am i kidding even before these things add up.

It's not too late to send to the Olds College one. Deadline is Monday: http://www.ocbrewmaster.com/2015-competition/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; They have a promotional video for the competition on that link as well as the entry link.

If you got best of show at their competition, would look good on the application form.

One of the Maine Beer Company guys gave up being a lawyer to start that brewery. Moral of the story is get it right the first time :)

FYI I dropped out of this comp. Just way to busy to bottle and get my entries together. Saving up for the Brewnosers comp and maybe ALES. Hopefully my current brews will stay fresh enough.
