This is my first time entering a mead and am not sure what to do.
I have a braggot I’d like to send to a competition and am having trouble figuring out whether or not it’s important to declare the ingredients. The malt is German, American hops, and English yeast. Needless to say the base beer doesn’t conform to a particular style.
What I’d like to do is leave the info blank, and get the judge’s uninformed opinion. I really dont want to influence their impression one way or another by declaring the ingredients.
Will leaving the info blank give me a competitive disadvantage?
