Also my hoppy citra beer tastes like a brut IPA and my winter ale tastes like a Belgian dubbel something seems to be working overtime in the background.
Is the cut-off date January 31st?Hello all,
First off wishing everyone at the HBF a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
I understand this thread is early, but with everyone being busy over the festivities, etc - I'd be as well posting it in good time, ahead of schedule.
As per tradition, feel free to post what you like here and contact me via message for postage details.
Judging will likely be the weekend of 8th/9th February due to work commitments; subject to change depending on @Ray1314's availability for co-judging. There will be a little something for 1st place also, alongside scored feedback for all participants.
I look forward to trying some banging beers!
Happy to sample as many or as few as you like. But obviously only one entry can be entered into the competition.Alright I think for this one I'll submit my Mosaic NEIPA. About a week in the keg and it's delicious. Will bottle one tonight and let it sit in the fridge a few days to see if it holds up.
Ghillie are you up for tasting a couple more. I have the one that has the diastaticus issue and I am curious if you taste the same thing I do? I also have a west coast IPA with citra that's aging very nicely.
Time is on your side then as you have around three weeks till judging.Think I will keg my brew tonight. Have a cheeky taste, obviously, and pull off a bottle. Leave it for a week before pouring a sample. I have only ever made one pale ale of this 'style' before and it took 3 weeks to come good. The only other pale ale I have made is a clone of Zombie Dust, twice. I remember popping a bottle of ZD just 11 days after brew day and it was lovely. However it is a beer with an enormous amount of hops for the volume. This Mosaic/CTZ pale has nowhere near the amount of dry hops. I am wondering if all those dry hops in the ZD have masked the greenness of the beer.
