Pilot Project Brewery Scale-Up Competition.
I wanted to get this up onto the website to give everyone some notice and to start planning for a CHAOS CLUB dark ale competition that will have 1stround judging during Stout & Chili night. We plan to have a few nights of style sampling at the club before we move onto brewing for the comp.
Here’s what we have so far and we’re continuing to work to fine tune the small details.
The competition will be for dark ales. CHAOS members will be able to choose from the following Beer Judge Certification Program beer categories:
-13A Dark Mild/13B British Brown Ale/13C English Porter
-16A Sweet Stout/16B Oatmeal Stout/16C Tropical Stout/16D Foreign Extra Stout
-20A American Porter/20B American Stout
As of right now beers will be between 5%-7% abv.
Brewers can also include to fruit, spiced, or smoked versions of the above categories.
The competition will be held in two rounds. The first round will take place at Stiout & Chili Night on January 25th. Six winning beers will be chosen through popular vote of party attendees. The top beers will then be judged a week or two later by certified beer judges, with Pilot Project Head Brewer & Owners in attendance. The Judging panel and Pilor Project will choose the best beer out of the final six.
Our club grain sponsor Muntons has offered to donate the base malt for the beer that's brewed at Pilot Project.
More details to follow!
