I might be in for this, I’ve never used these hops before so it might be fun.

Now now competitions aren’t about winning, it’s about the suffering involved waiting for the results

Good idea, I have never bottled from a Keg and need to do it for this, so just put together a makeshift beer gun from a video. Really do not want to bottle anymore than I have to haha

I’ll definitely bring some. I brought a bunch to the Hortons ridge comp to share but it ended up being pretty crowded with non-comp people and it wasn’t really that easy to get the beers around. A few of us did enjoy a few though which was nice.

With the spindrift comp it’ll likely just be us there so we should be able to easily swap some around.
