New to the club and never entered a competition before. I brewed my beer already and was considering adding a particular fruit to it. In looking at the BJCP styles I noticed that Fruit Beer is it's own category. Does this mean that fruit can't be in the entry I provide and would disqualifying for the style I submit for?

Correct, fruit beers are a separate category. If the beer you brewed is a style selected for this year's Big Turkey competition, I'd add fruit to only half of it and submit the base beer. If the fruited half is good, maybe save 3 bottles for 2018 Indiana Brewer's cup. :beer9

We could use some volunteers to help steward the judging on Saturday, Dec. 2, 1PM - 4PM at Tin Man Brewery.
If you're available and willing to help, please reply here or PM me. Thank you!
