Get ready for the hops and barley to start flying as teams of brewers battle head to head to see who can brew the best beer.
Once the surprise ingredient is revealed, brewers will have 1 hour to declare a style and formulate a recipe for a five to six gallon batch. Once that hour is up, brewing will commence using only the ingredients that are provided (water treatments and yeast excluded). Brewers will be given 5 to 6 hours to complete the brewing. The contestants will then be able to take their beers home for fermentation.
Judging will be held during the October meeting based on style and prevalence of secret ingredient. We'll also have people’s choice.
Date: Saturday, September 8th
Secret ingredient will be unveiled at 0930 (9:30am) Show up earlier to set up.
