Sat 5th May 2018 Wishbone Brewery & NCB Competition

Post by WishboneBrewery » Sat Dec 09, 2017 4:30 pm

I will update the Blog post as I organise more - http://www.wishbonebrewery.co.uk/2017/1 ... mpetition/

Here's a rundown of whats sorted so far:
This will be the third year we have held the Northern Craft Brewers Homebrew Competition, we had some 34 entries into last years competition, this is a Homebrewers-only Social Event and is NOT open to the general public.
The competition is to be held on Saturday 5th May 2018 and is open to all homebrewers who can bring their bottle entries on the day.

Here is a link to some tips on brewing a NEIPA. You might also note that the new Lallemand yeast ‘New England’ is going on general release from 6th November 2017 if you want to try for that Cloudwater vibe 😉

Competition Rules:

Brew: New England IPA, Hazy / Low Bitterness / Juicy.
Gravity: 1040-1070
Bottles: 3x 500ml Unmarked brown glass bottles.
Entries: 1 entry per brewer, email your contact details to competition@wishbonebrewery.co.uk
Hops & Malts: Entirely the brewers choice.
Yeast: Entirely the brewers choice.
On the day: Bottles to be brought to the brewery on the day of competition (NO Postal entries, we want everyone to come and enjoy the social as much as the competition)
Date & Time: Sat 5th May 2018 Doors open 11am, Bar open from 12.00, Judging starts at 13.00, kickout time around 18.00
Prizes: We will be presenting engraved tankards and certificates and I dare say there will be prizes too.
Again we will be raising money for charity, have 6 handpulls on our brewery bar so we would like 3-4 homebrewers who want to brew a beer for the bar to be served alongside our own beer, all proceeds from the sale of homebrewed and our own beers will be donated to local charities.

We will be having Rob from Lallemand Yeast and Rob from The Malt Miller coming along, maybe they should do a duet 😉 Also Dominic Driscoll Brewer from Thornbridge will be coming to have a chat to us.

Good stuff... there are already a few entries in :)

So far I believe we have Rob from Lallemand and Rob from the Malt Miller and around 7 provisionally confirmed judges from the Beer/Bar/Blogging/Brewing world.

:) There's a few dribbling in now, if like other years it will be a last minute job while people test their recipes.

There were 30-odd of us willing to put fruir in our beer last time, so I can only think there will be even more willing to chuck in buckets of hops!

Myself and Barney will be there. We have booked an overnighter in Bradford which is a short train ride.
Anyone else interested in staying over and having a few further drinks and a curry after the comp ?
