Default HBF Competition 1st/2nd/3rd Place Winners Recipes

October 16 first place.


Ok first a big thanks to DoctorMick and the other forum members for setting this up.
I'm really pleased with the results as the method of my brewing is very simple and it shows that good beer can be made by all with out tons of kit.

So the recipe is tweaked Greg Hughes black ipa malt bill and my hop bill.
BIAB and no chill(I recently read an article on the web that said you cant no chill IPA's)

23L
pale malt 6k
choc malt .225
roast barley .170

70 min boil
citra 20g FWH
cascade 20g FWH
Apollo 30g @ 50 min
irish moss tspn @15 min
citra 10g in cube @80c
cascade 10g in cube @80c
citra 30g dry hop day 5
cascade 30g dry hop day 5
simcoe 30g dry hop day 5

mashed @ 65c for 50 mins then dunk sparged @74c for 15 mins

OG 1056 FG 1012 5.7 abv

Ferment at 18c with mangrove jacks m44 yeast

The beer was drunk six weeks after bottling which is lucky as early on the roast barley was quite harsh! but seemed to mellow out with the hops as time went on.

Default Homebrew Forum Competition - October 16 (third place)

Thanks for taking the time to organise a competition and taking the time to sample my beer. Congratulations to the winner @JFB and runner up @dan125

Here is my recipe, I didn't originally create it as an IPA, but I made some adjustments and ramped up the hops a little so that I could enter it into the competition.

Just a note, this beer is intended to be hazy and should be served as such.No need for finings.

Enjoy!

Default Homebrew Forum Competition - October 16 (2nd place)

Here's my recipe too

Great work getting the comp up and running
Here's to many more


I'd been wanting to make a 'traditional' IPA for a while and the comp seemed like a good excuse.
The simple recipe was based on Martyn Cornell's blog post about a collaborative brew he did with Brains: http://zythophile.co.uk/2012/06/17/h...ipa-at-brains/
I brewed this back on 31st July as I wanted it to have decent maturing time (although not as long as a real 19th Century IPA would have done)


Colonel Cornell's East India Pale Ale

24L batch
OG 1.056
FG 1.007
6.5% ABV
50ish IBUs

Maris Otter - 6kg
Black malt - 20g
Mash @ 65C

60mins: EKG 80g
10mins: EKG 60g
Dry hop in FV when yeast pitched (for a more aged dry hop flavour): EKG 50g

1pk Notty + 1pk MJ west coast ale yeast, fermented at 17C, rising to 20C to finish

That was meant to be it, but I got worried that there might not being any hop flavour/aroma left by comp time, so chucked another 50g EKG pellets in 2ndry for the last 5 days before bottling.

The base malt recipe is from "Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher" with my hop choice and schedule. Hops from three continents(hence the name).

Comments from judge is it could maybe do with some oats to give a more creamy feel and I agree

Default HBF Comp November 1st Place

Bit of a struggle with the prefix here, I'd say it is more of a British style pale but with an American hop.

4.8kg pilsner malt
0.28kg Caramunich
25g Pligrim 60min
20g Citra 15min
20g Citra 5min
30g Citra flameout
30g Citra dry hop 4 days

Pitched WYeast London Ale Yeast

OG should have been 1.048 but I only managed to hit 1.040.
FG 1.011

This is the Greg Hughes recipe bumped up a little.
It keeps really well, I think it was about 6 months old at tasting and probably took 6 weeks to get good.

Default HBF Competition. January 2017 1st Place

I'm so pleased to have won this competition. The recipe entered is Harry Porter and the Quest for Chicken Nuggets. It was originally based off a Mikkeller recipe but has been changed a couple of times to suit my system and the ingredients I'm more likely to have in stock.

Batch size: 25L
Efficiency: ~70%
OG: 1.059
FG: 1.019
ABV: 5.2%

Grain Bill
2.8kg lager
2.5kg maris otter
0.57kg brown malt
0.4kg flaked barley
0.4kg chocolate malt
80g amber malt

Hops
25g Herkules @ 60 min
16g Lublin @ 15 min
16g Hallertau @ 15 min
16g Hallertau @5 min
13g Willamette @5 min

Yeast
Saflager W-34/70 fermented at ~20°C

Extras
2 vanilla beans cut up into secondary for 1 week
500ml cafetiere coffee into secondary for 1 week

For the coffee I used 500ml water to 50g of Lavazza coffee.

This yeast can take a couple of days before it starts to show signs of fermentation, and can give off horrific sulphur smells for up to 1 week after fermentation is complete. It's a very robust yeast though which seems to accentuate the coffee and vanilla flavours.

Default Home Brew Competition - January 17 - 2nd place

FAT BLACK HEART - Oatmeal Stout
(named after a track by a favourite band from back in the 90s & not a clone of a Brewdog stout with a similar name) -


25L batch

OG - 1.058
FG - 1.013
5.9% ABV
30ish IBUs

Maris Otter Extra Pale - 2400g
Mild ale malt - 2000g
Naked malted oats - 1200g (meant to have ordered normal oat malt)
Carafa Special 3 - 500g
Swaen biscuit honey malt - 500g
Caramalt - 300g

Mashed @ 66C

Target (pellet-10.5%AA) - 32g - 60mins

Fermented with WLP002 English Ale yeast @ 18C, rising to 20C to finish

My entry was brewed on the 4th Dec and bottled on the 24th, and I think it might benefit from a bit longer in the bottle.
