I'm surprised that no one even announced it. The Mazer Cup registration opened up last night .

It was half full when I registered my entries last night. If you plan to enter you better hurry. I doubt it will be open much longer.

Damn, thanks for the heads up! I got in just under the wire. It'll be filled for sure this morning. It was at 440/450 when I finished entering.

Me too! I'm entering two dry traditionals, my take on Oskaar's Mutiny on the Bounty cyser, and the first batch of my Saison session mead. This will be my first submission to a competition!

I was blown away last year when I was there. I thought the pro stuff would be better than the home brewers. I don't know why I thought that. Boy was I wrong. The home brew division had great meads in all the categories. A very tough competition for sure. I bet a tenth place mead would win best of show in lots of other competitions.

Dude I can believe it. It sounds like the level of quality across the board in the mead world has grown exponentially. I'm not expecting to get a cup or anything, I'm just hoping for some good feedback from the judges.

We have a cyser made from a wildling crabapple and some local dark honey, these crabapples have a high SG on their own and lots of acid and head shrinking tannins and a very apply flavor that stands up well to dark honey, it went thru MLF and finished perfectly smooth. I was going to send in a bottle and registered, when I finally read the instructions they wanted 3 bottles, what, 3 bottles, I was having a hard time parting with one, so we withdrew. Going to wait until our trees grafted from this start producing apples and do it again planning on making enough to part with a few bottles without pain:) When we pulled out I posted here so if someone had just missed the deadline they could do a quick pickup for the last entry, we dont want an empty spot on the table because of us.

I'm with you WVMJ. I just can't bring myself to part with 3 bottles of my liquid gold. There's a reason mead is the drink of kings & im not gonna give it up. Just sayin...going to the mead cave now-need to check on the Chardonnay & Sauvignon..yea I know it's not mead but I'm an equal opportunity quaffer

36 hours to fill all 450 entries? Wow!! New record this year for sure. Glad I got mine done in time. It was a close thing but I made it. Good luck everyone!

For those that didn't make it into Mazer, the Domras Cup still has 20 slots open as of this morning but probably won't make it through the weekend.
