Competition placed recipes.

Have you won or been placed in a Homebrew competition lately? I know some of you have.

Are you happy to share your recipe?

If so then this section of the forum is where you can post them, let's see if we can get a good selection of successful competition beer recipes lined up, whether that be All Grain, or Kit brews, it would be good to know what you did to make the beer so good.

Aleman's Effin Hefe.

If you allow beers that placed in a recent competition, then I give you this 2nd Place @ The Home Brew Festival 2016 (Wheat Beers)

23L at 1.050 assuming a 75% efficiency

3000g Wheat Malt
2000g Pilsner malt

Use a modified Hochkurz Mash (38C for 30 minutes, 61C for 45 Minutes 71C for 30 minutes)

Full volume boil with 18g Styrian Goldings (3.8%) for 75 minutes. . . which was a balls up, it should have been Savinjski Goldings at 5.2% hence the lack of balance

Ferment at 18C with a good starter of WLP380 Hefe IV to get a nice balance between banana and clove.

OK so what needs to be done to take it from 31/32 points up to 45-50?

1) Get the right hops out of the freezer so you get some balance between sweet and bitter
2) Modify the mash schedule to bring some more body into the beer, so 15 minutes at 38C, 30 minutes at 61C and 30 minutes at 71C
3) Bottle it two weeks before the competition and naturally carbonate, not try filling a bottle from the keg with a length of 3/16" tube the day before you leave for the festival. so you get an appropriate degree of carbonation.

please note:The use of punctuation, bold, underlining, italics, and different sized type, follows the convention used in writing, for many years, to place emphasis on the point being made, and to highlight the importance of that point in the opinion of the author. It is not the intention of the author to shout, if that was the case the author would adopt the, much more recent, convention of using all capital letters.

I have a couple:

This one, which is an attempt at a Rochefort 8 clone, won a gold in cat 26D.

My rye saison won a silver with a score of 44 in cat 31A.

I have a 41 scoring bitter also, cat 11C. I'll add the recipe later when I find it.

Conditioning: AG51 Brett Saison, AG48 Biere de Garde, AG42 Westvleteren XII Clone, AG29 Lambic v1.0
