The Limbo Challenge BCOEM is up and running. Go ahead and create your account now. Entry registration opens on Sunday July 7th at Noon.

How to get all your precious entries in the competition:

  • Sequence entry registration from low medal category number to higher. The lower numbered categories usually fill up first. Light Lagers and such.
  • Put just enough information in each entry to be able to save it. This may just be one character for the name. Then save your entry. You can go back and edit later.
  • You will have one hour after you save your entry to pay for it. Don’t panic. That will be plenty of time. Also don’t panic if after paying for your entry, BCOEM does not show the entry as paid immediately. It takes PayPal a little bit of time notify BCOEM of payment. Trust your PayPal receipt.
  • At your leisure, go back and edit the entry details like name and required special ingredients. Note: you are only guaranteed to change style to another style in the medal category. You will not be able to change the style to a different style in a full medal category.
  • If you have questions, talk to Jimmy before the entry window opens.

    Our club meeting is tonight starting at 6:30 at NTHBS. We will have pizza and the pale ale yeast experiment beers will be served. Bring your own homebrew and/or whatever else you like to share. Meeting will get going around 7PM.

    Bluebonnet Club Beers for Homebrew Tasting

    We need beer for the Club Kegerator on Saturday evening at the Bluebonnet Brew-Off. Right now there is only beer from Terry and me. We need to fill up the 12 faucets. You can reserve you faucet at this link. Get your beer registered here: Click me Now.

    Please bring your best beer. We want to show the participants which club brews the best beer and that is the NTHBA. If we overflow the 12 faucets we will work to switch kegs out and give every one some faucet time.

    The kegerator is set up for ball lock kegs. If you have pin lock kegs, make a note in the spreadsheet.
