the bottles should probably be green or brown, & we should ask for at least 3.
three judges can score from just one bottle, but we should allow for breakage
if we want to do a best of show.
depending on what kind of response we get, we may have to create sub-
categories of things like mead & beer. we may even want to restrict to a few
specific styles (pale ales & stouts, for example). something else we should
consider: I think it's great to have a category for period recipes. but we
should make some ourselves in order to qualify ourselves. I know we did the
hippocras, but perhaps an (gag) unhopped ale should be in order. I know hops
were period, but you never know... we should also have large quantities of
bread (or crackers) & water on hand.
well, I'm basically clueless. something that might be a good idea is to build
up a guild library. perhaps a requirement for master could even be to write
something up on a brewing subject to have in the library (did I just suggest
that???). by library I mean a shelf in pug's house.
I think all-grain brewing should be a requirement, & as such I'll be happy to
infected batches don't count.
