Interesting... I might actually have something for this. I guess I need to keg my O'fest. I also have a fruit beer and a mint milk stout.

Would the mint milk stout go into herb and spice beer category?

That's where I would put it. How did you use the mint?

Bought fresh mint, chopped it up and soaked in vodka to sanitize/sterilize it, and dumped that all (including the vodka) into the fermenter.

Added after the bulk of fermentation was complete, although I don't do "secondary" so it went into the primary fermenter.

Chris,
I would think 10.1 - "west coast extra pale ale" would be a logical place to enter an IPA if you have one.
