Anybody going to the Corrados competition in northern nj?
You should post the info to this thread. A bunch of those guys have done this event in the past.
Not this year , did last time hard for a kit maker in this competition.
The competition is not open for mead, is it?
No meads it seems. But does look like they added a kit category this year.
Apparently the dinner and ceremony accompanying the contest is quite the event.
Entry form. 1/14/19 cutoff
I live most of the week upstate NY so too far to travel for the event.. but I might check and see if I have a fruit wine that I think has any chance
I wonder why they added a kit category. I suppose it is, they are afraid that a kit might score higher than one from grapes and I say so what.
Pretty sure that’s exactly what it is. I’ve heard this exact thing happening in other contests as well. And the grape wine category supporters claiming a disadvantage after kits beat out grapes for best in show. (Heard 2nd hand at my LHBS)
They added the kit category several years ago. My friends and I that went entered some of our wines in that category and they never announced the winners that night. It seems they don't think it's real wine! Now I enter my wines in the regular categories! I will be there again this year.
I always thought Mead was put into category with beer competitions. ♂️
In our state fair you have to write if the wine is Grape and what kind or you have to write concentrate meaning Kit. I don’t think any of the concentrates come in 1st place.
