Greetings Brewers!
Our 2013 monthly schedule looks like this;
Feb 8th – ‘Taste-Off’ - Bring a beer that was designed to be a particular style, and the club will blind taste test it.
Mar 8th – Pale Ale Comp – Bring a beer that has the words ‘Pale Ale’ in the title and we shall all judge.
Apr 12th – EXTREME brew Comp – Any beer that can considered ‘extreme’ qualifies for entry.
May 10th – No Theme- Possible Education night-Brennan Dependant!
Jun 14th - Beer Tainting – an Aroxa tainting kit will be purchased using funds from the kitty to teach us to place diacytal, acetylaldehyde, oxidised etc etc
Jul 12th – Champion Brew Month – Bring your best beer to be judged according to style by Brennan AND within the club.
Aug 9th – Stout & Porter – Bring your best Stout or Porter to enter the comp.
Sep 13th – Kit & Kilo – We get back to basics this month with the rule being only beers that are from a hopped tin and a kilo of dried stuff may be included. Yeast is your own choice however. Thank god.
Oct 11th– Lager Comp
Nov 8th – Social Night – No comp, just some good ol’ fashioned beer tasting!
Dec 13th – X-Mas Beer/Breakup meeting – Bring your best Chrissie beer, AND elect the new year’s office bearers.

Also, as was spoken about in our January Meeting, rather than collecting a lump sum membership payment, we shall collect a mandatory $5 per meeting which will entitle each of us to ONE raffle ticket. If you enter a beer into the raffle, this will give you an extra TWO tickets (three in total), and additional tickets can be purchased for the sum of a buck a ticket. However, I would like to stress the 5 smackos per meeting will be enforced with an iron fist… by Kegs our Seargeant at Arms ;) BAMMMM!
Happy Brewing everyone!
Damien

Yeah... I think most will go the Hops route... I am thinking of brewing outside the box.. just not sure what way to go?

High Alcohol????

Possibly a massive MIXTURE of hops... like a 15 hop hop bill???

or just bring out my framboise for a funky extreme?

Damn... I think I am missing something, all of this seems to have been done before.... I am tempted to use the Braumeister for evil rather than good and get a no sparge 19L batch from it. So maybe a halucinagenic Belgian?
Yeah... that's what I am missing from my extreme beer category.
Dodgy stuff that needs to come with a disclaimer like
'If you work in the mines... you might wanna check with Damo before sampling this'
;) hehe
ideas anyone???

A zero alcohol, zero flavour beer. Oh wait - that's Soda Water.

I heard that Zamil Jasselhoff fella (or whatever his name is) talk about doing a 100% spec malt brew once. Sick. Extreme? Not sure, although 100% carafa 3 would be extremely revolting.

Tiny batch size = good idea methinks. Prune beer taught me that.

How is your lawn? You dumped it yet? :lol:

Extreme is going to be a tricky one I think...but going to have some crazy results!!

PS. You can put anything in your beer right? :lol:

Yeah, I reckon as long as you can say it is extreme in some way shape or form then it can be popped in the comp.
I think I might dust off my old school 3V and do a half batch mega strong brett spiked ale. Maybe chuck in some coffee.
hmmmm gonna be fun!

Got brave an tipped it. Worst thing was ... it smelt amazing. Still very drinkable, but not something I want on tap in any volume.

Probably the key to wacky competitions is to think, "So I want a whole keg of this?"

I just had an idea for extreme brewing: make a 1L batch. That's extremely small.

heheh I have a feeling a lot of the extreme beers will be undrinkable...
Should the winner of this comp be a combo of most extreme + Most drinkable. Perhaps a rating out of 10 for each, then added together...
Your recipe would get a 10 out of 20 heheh
