When filling out form for a contest, what is the category and sub category? Would like to send a pale ale in for a local contest but confused by the form. They're going by a 2015 bjcp form.
Download bjcp 2015 from your phones app store....,im guessing 18B.
I think American pale ale is 10a . So 10 would be category and "a" would be sub category?
Maybe i got a bad app....18b is american pale ale.....but to answer your question.....yes
For Pale Ales, looks like 10b was the BJCP 2008 category ( http://www.bjcp.org/docs/2008_stylebook.pdf )
For the 2015 styles, it's 18b ( http://www.bjcp.org/docs/2015_Guidelines_Beer.pdf http://www.bjcp.org/stylecenter.php )
Ok thanks, some form I was looking at last night had it as 10 then there where 3 categories. Must have been an older version.
