Q. HOW DO I REGISTER TO COMPETE?
A. Just come by Nepenthe during store hours on MARCH 3, 2018 with a sanitized bucket and your registration fee. Registration fee is $45 and includes 5 gallons of juice that you must use to compete. Registration is limited to the first 20 competitors and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our competitions tend to fill up fast so get here early!
Q. DO I NEED TO ENTER ALL 5 GALLONS TO COMPETE?
A. Yes. 5 gallons of juice is included in your registration fee and this juice MUST be used as your entry. What you do with that juice is up to you! Add flavorings, use whatever yeast you'd like, get as creative as you want with it!
Q. CAN I USE MY OWN APPLE JUICE INSTEAD OF THE JUICE YOU'RE PROVIDING?
A. No. To keep the playing field even, Brown's Orchard is providing all the juice for each competitor and that must be the base of your entry. Trust us, it's great juice!
Q. IF I'M COMPETING DO I GET TO BRING A GUEST?
A. Yes. Each registered competitor will get ONE complimentary ticket to give to a guest of their choosing. If you would like more people to attend, have them buy a ticket.
Q. I'M BREWING WITH A PARTNER, CAN WE BOTH BRING SOMEONE?
A. One brewer will be registered as the competitor and the other is considered to be their complementary guest. Additional people will have to purchase a ticket to attend.
Q. I JUST WANT TO ATTEND, DO I HAVE TO SHOW UP ON MARCH 3?
A. No. The juice pick-up and registration is only for competitors. Tickets will be available to buy on MARCH 10, 2018.
Q. WHERE CAN I BUY A TICKET TO ATTEND?
A. Ticket sales begin on MARCH 10. A link will be provided via social media and on the Nepenthe Homebrew website (www.nepenthehomebrew.com), and tickets will be available to purchase in-store. Only 150 tickets will be available, so grab yours fast!
Q. HOW WILL I BE SERVING MY CIDER?
A. If you are bottling, make sure you chill your bottles before arriving. It's a good idea to bring a cooler to keep your cider cool while you serve. If you are kegging, bring your co2 and dispensing equipment along with your keg, which should also be chilled before arriving. We will provide ice, but you'll need to provide a tub to keep your ice in.
Q. DO YOU NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS EVENT?
A. We will post on social media about a week before the event if we need volunteers.
Q. I HAVE A REALLY CRAZY SPECIFIC QUESTION THAT WASN'T ADDRESSED HERE. CAN I EMAIL YOU?
A. Sure can. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you as soon as we have an answer.
