Info on registering the club with the AHA/Club only competions

Post  CGreen on Mon Dec 14, 2009 2:02 pm

I did a bit of digging around and gathered a some of info on registering our club with the AHA. There are no negatives that I can find. It is completely free and we will receive notification for all AHA events. We will also be able to take part in the 6 yearly AHA Club Only Competitions. We will have to pick 1 beer to represent our club for each competition.

The next AHA Club comp is on 2/20/2010 and the category is English Brown Ales. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] These are session beers and ferment out fast (3-5 days). If you brew within the next 2 weeks it will be done in time. We can hold our selection panel during the February meeting. the deadline for entry is 2/16/10.

Here is the text directly from the AHA:


"If your club is not yet listed in the AHA-registered clubs database, you can register your club with the AHA for free by simply filling out the Club Information Form. Registration with the AHA gets your club listed in the AHA-registered clubs database, helping local homebrewers find you. Registered clubs also qualify to send one entry to each of the six AHA Club-Only Competitions, plus they receive email updates from the AHA covering Club-Only Competition results and deadlines, and upcoming AHA Events and Activities."

This sounds great...I say let's do it ASAP so we can get in for the next club competition.

We could either vote on a recipe to submit at the January meeting, or we could vote at the February meeting for best club brown from personal endeavours.

I've already put together a recipe specifically for this reason...or I might do 5 gallons and split the batch between two different yeast strains.

I have Notty and Windsor, so we could taste the differences in flavor profiles between a single Manufacturer's Northern and Southern English ale yeasts.

I'd prefer to bottle condition an English brown, as it would be more traditional to the style.

I think we need to brew them and have a tasting at the Feb meeting. Who ever is interested should brew whatever recipe they want and we can select what we feel is our best example. The tasting will need to be blind so this will take a bit of organization but we can pull it off. It will also be a great lesson on beer tasting!

I'll help organize and distribute the samples. An excel file and some organization will make this a snap.

Someone want to put out an email to the group saying whats up and to do this quick since they should brew before the end of the year.

I'll be brewing a Southern English Brown for entry tonight. Went to Bob's shop yesterday to get my ingredients. I hope it turns out good, seeing that this will only be my 3rd batch and I'm attempting my first recipe.

I've got a Northern English Brown ready to be bottled next Monday. Do we need to bring our recipes with OG and FG numbers? How many bottles should we bring?
