We are sponsoring a one time, iron brewer type competition this fall. 100% of the proceeds go to us to help with the move. Please spread the word! I left some flyers by the office, drop them off anywhere that will take them. I hope to get some great entries, if you need help with recipes or techniques let me know.
CHAOS is proud to announce the Nielsen-Massey Homebrew Challenge!
One of our members has a relative that works for Nielsen-Massey, a company that makes very high quality flavor extracts. Their vanilla is considered the best you can get. They want to get some great homebrew recipes using their extracts to publish on their website, so they asked us to host a competition.
They are giving away their extracts for use in the competition (enough for a 5 gallon batch) as well as giving out two grand prizes of $100 for the best homebrew using vanilla extract and the best homebrew using one of their other flavor extracts. The competition is going to be limited to 100 entries.
Available Vanilla Extracts and Flavors include:
• Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
• Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
• Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans
• Mexican Pure Vanilla Extract
• Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
• Pure Vanilla Extract
• Pure Almond Extract
• Pure Chocolate Extract
• Pure Coffee Extract
• Pure Lemon Extract
• Pure Orange Extract
• Orange Blossom Water
• Pure Peppermint Extract
• Rose Water
The structure is a bit different than the typical competition. Between now and September 19, participants must register their entries on the competition site, provide a complete recipe, note how much extract they will need, and pay the entry fee.
CHAOS members should pick up their extract at our October meeting. If this is going to be a problem for you please let James Lewis know and we can make arrangments.
All entries are due by November 17 at either of those locations and judging will take place Dec 7.
