    November is the third month of the new schedule so the category is Freestyle so you can submit whatever you like. If you're not sure if your beer fits the category just ask the judge for the month, it'll be their decision to accept or not.

    The judge is @Ajhutch assuming you're happy with this new category?

    If you'd like to enter please send a PM to the judge who will provide you with a delivery address. Entries must reach the judge by Thursday 30th November and feedback will be provided by PM within a few weeks. The winner will be announced on this thread.

    For details of what details needs to be provided with your entry and competition rules please look at this thread: http://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=64349

    Thanks for the clearing that up. My Christmas spiced brown Ale will be entered in this one then!

    I’ve just sampled my Christmas brown ale and think it’s really nice. Mrs Dundee doesn’t like it so maybe it’s a Marmite beer but I hope it’s a success!

    Don’t think I’ve got anything suitable either, I expected to have one but I’m about 5 brews behind where I expected to be.

    I got a ‘you were out’ slip today which I’m guessing will be @Dads_Ale beer. I’ll pick that up on Wednesday. @mozza do you want me to PM you my address?

    It just occurred to me that when we did our bottle swap earlier this year I think you had my work address. I'm off at the moment so if you do want to enter PM me for my home address.

    I've currently got entries from @dads_ale and @dan125 and @mickdundee is on the way. I plan to do the judging on the 9th December which is a little late but my brother will be around as well. Hope this is ok with everyone, and it does give a bit of extra time for anyone else to enter. Remember, you can literally enter anything in this freestyle competition.

    Final bump for this. Judging will be one week from tonight so still time to enter. I’ve got four entries so far, from @dan125 @mickdundee @dads_ale and @mozza and they all sound like really interesting beers.
