Good evening all,

Just a placeholder for next years National Homebrew Competition.

The National Homebrew Competition will take place on Saturday 21st March 2020 (venue TBC).

It was discussed at the AGM and it was voted to allow non members. Non members will be charged more than members to enter their entries in the competition.

Good luck to all.

Below is a graph on when is best to brew each style of beer to have it in tip-top shape for the 2020 competition.

Good evening all,

Now that the dust has settled on BrewCon it's time to start gearing up for the Nationals.

As always the continued success of the Nationals is based on the help from club members and anyone else that we can rope in to helping on the day.

I would ask all members that have free time or capacity to add the 21st March to your calendars and come help make the National competition run as smoothly as it has for the past number of years.

If you have any questions feel free to post here or get in touch via DM.

Added to calendar.

Must start planning brews for it now.

Can I assume bottle sorting on the 8th March? Dropoff deadline the 1st March?

I'll let you know a bit closer the time but it will be in and around those dates alright.

FYI, there are now draft guidelines for Brut IPA from the American Homebrew Association.
We will use these for 2020 Nationals.
Submit Brut IPA entries under 21B. Specialty IPA.

Hi All,

With the nationals just around the corner we have the usual dilemma where we look for volunteers to help run the competition.

We will need volunteers to help with


  • Bottle Sorting

  • Acting as Drop off points

  • Stewarding

  • Judging

  • Cellarperson

  • Scoresheet Manager

  • Steward Manager

  • Comp Organiser

  • Judging Officer

  • General Logistics



If you're interested stick your name down here. We will be setting up a conference call to divvy up the jobs soon. This is a good opportunity to see behind the scenes how the nationals is organised and run.

Thanks all,

Mick
NHC Secretary

Is this from last years registration? We purged everything from the database after the competition last year to comply with our GDPR commitments. Maybe that is the reason?
