We so happy to announce Iron Brewer is back after missing it last year.
The Iron Brew competition concept is taken from the Iron Chef television show. The general idea is for teams of homebrewers to test their recipe formulation and brewing skills by brewing a beer from previously-unknown ingredients.
On brew day you and your team will take your equipment to the brew site and set up by the start time. At the start time you will receive a kit of ingredients to include base malt(s) or extract, specialty grains, hops in pelletized form, and special ingredients. Once you receive your ingredients, your team will develop your recipe and brew your beer. You will bring your own yeast, no more than two strains. You are allowed to pitch yeast off-site. There is no need to bring the yeast if pitching off site.
The FOAM Iron Brewer Award is determined by judges. Qualified judges will use the BJCP guidelines and what the team said their beer should taste like to determine the winner. Winners will be awarded framed certificates.
The Joe Six-pack award will be the people’s choice decided by those attending the meeting. Please bring at least eight 12-oz bottles to the meeting. More would be better. Of course it’s best if you bring it in a keg. The six-pack winners get bragging rights but their isn’t an actual award that is handed out.
