Mead Competition

Greetings Mead Makers! This year, as always, we will be having a competition to see who brewed the best mead. The meads will be judged by Greg Fink and some lucky winners chosen from the ECT Raffle.

The Rules:
1) There will be three categories:

Traditional – no flavor adjuncts other than honey
Melomels – mead with fruit as the only adjunct
Other – includes spices, herbs, maple, braggots

*If you’re not sure where your mead should be entered, Greg will help you.  Winner for each category will be chosen, and a “Best of Show” for the grand prize.

**For the past couple years, we have had fewer than normal entries, so if less than three in any category, all meads will be combined into one category.

2) When entering, please provide a bottle with no labels or label covered. When you enter, provide information regarding the style of mead. It will be judged on how well it represents its style.

3) The mead maker MUST BE AN ATTENDEE of ECT. No bringing your buddy’s mead and passing it off as your own.

4) One mead per category please.

5) Please no bottle bombs. Make sure your mead is fit for human consumption.

6) If you like, please keep a bottle in reserve. In the past, winners have auctioned off the winning mead for the ECT Auction.
