Brewers, start your carboys!  Announcing the return of...

Sweets for the Sweet VI

Five years of sweet, syrupy alcohol just isn't enough for the sweet ladies
of Calontir.  Since Francis and Azenari will not be able to preside over
this fun tradition this year, I am taking over this lovely competition.
Because I too love sweet stuff!

Once again, the collected brewers of the Knowne World have the opportunity
to win the hearts (and palates) of the lovely ladies who compare stout to
motor oil, porter to swamp muck, and dry wine to harsh vinegar.  Too long
have these poor ladies sat in miserable sobriety!  This must be cured!

All sweet alcohols are eligible -- cider, wine, mead, beer, even cordials
and liqueurs.  (As usual, cordials and liqueurs should be based on a neutral
store-bought spirit.)  Any beverage you have personally produced may be entered.

Judging will be by a panel of sweet ladies of Calontir, with at least one
experienced brewer for the more technical aspects.  The judges will be
looking for the following, in order:

        1. Taste.  Aim for the sweet spot.
        2. Period ingredients.
        3. Period brewing techniques.

Minimum documentation: an ingredient list, in case of allergies among the
judges.  More documentation is always better.

The prize: One hand made 12th C table knife, made by Lord Isengrim Sleggja,
complete with documentation and care instructions.

The competition is tentatively scheduled for 1pm, second Saturday of Lilies,
(check the schedule closer to war).

Please help me carry on this wonderful tradition, and help some sweet ladies
get sweeter!

Lady Elynor of Glastonbury
