    That sounds promising but obviously doesn’t leave us with much time to get the beer brewed, bottled & conditioned.
    The rules of the Brew Con comp (
    https://www.brew-con.co.uk/thecommunitybrew) specify that we have to work on the recipe with the brewery.
    So,
    a) we need to decide on a style and recipe
    b) send it to Thornbridge to have them have a look it at and amend as necessary

    Also, our entry needs to include an 150 word essay detailing the process of how we put the recipe together, which sounds like a lot of messing about to me. This essay wouldn’t count towards how the beer was judged but without it then I guess they’d disallow our entry. We also need to take pictures of the brewing process and post them on Twitter.



    For the actual brewing part we can brew the beer on any kit, so long as it’s not bigger than 1000L. Obviously I know people will jump at the chance of brewing at Thornbridge but if we haven’t got the time then we’re going to need a backup plan.


    I would suggest meeting up sometime, either an evening or weekend at the Tap or other pub of your choice, to sort out the beer style and recipe as this might be easier than trying to do it via the forum?

    Ive emailed back asking if we can meet before he goes on holiday @27th that will give us more time if we can do it.
    Agree with Meeting up and formulating strategy and plan. I’m away Tuesday Wednesday this week but after that free.

    Hi, it does look an exciting opportunity, and one that we need to jump on very quickly.
    I'd suggest a meet up, sooner rather than later, where we can formulate a recipe and plan, then we arrange a meeting with Thornbridge to get it brewed.
    I'm free from Thursday of this week up until, and including next Wednesday.
    I've included my number for ease of contact.

    This all sounds very promising guys. Agree that it's a good idea to meet soon, so we can start putting a plan together. I'm not free this Saturday evening, or next Tuesday (28th), but can do weekdays from 5pm, or weekend if that's better for people.

    Cheers, Nath

    After all the drinking of the past week it would have probably been a good idea to give our livers a rest but what the heck...

    Next Sheffield homebrew club meeting Thursday 18th July at The Sheffield Tap, starting 7:30pm.
