---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 29 Oct 2009 09:59:39 -0400 From: "Nelson \(HamFon\)" <nelson at buildabeer.org> Subject: AHA Club-Only-Competition for Belgian Strong Ales Dunedin Brewers Guild is proud to announce that we are hosting the AHA (American Homebrewers Association) Club-Only-Competition for Belgian Strong Ales (BJCP style 18)! This is a homebrew competition. COC-Belgian is now accepting entries online at www.DunedinBrewersGuild.com (be sure to select the COC-Belgian link, but you can *also* enter the Walk The Line On Barleywine, if you want - yes - that's right - two competitions the same weekend!). Entry deadline is 27 November 2009, and final judging will occur on 5 December 2009. Cost is $7 per entry and consists of TWO (2) 10-14 oz unmarked brown bottles. NOTE - this competition allows for one entry per AHA registered club. So - get together with your club members and decide who has the entry that will best represent your club - and send it in! Also, for BJCP judges, pro brewers, experienced judges, and stewards - it would be great to have you come out and help in the judging! I will publish a separate Call For Judges as the competition gets closer. This is a BJCP/AHA sanctioned competition. Note that judges who RSVP will get priority scheduling.

Date: Fri, 30 Oct 2009 10:56:01 +1100 From: "Williams, Rowan" <Rowan.Williams at ag.gov.au> Subject: Roasted Wheat in an Amber?? [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED] G'day all, Yesterday I rabbited on about an amber ale grain bill that I'm working on. 70% Pale, 10% Amber, 10% Cararoma, 7% Wheat and 3% Roasted Barley. The aim is to push the roast and toffee malt flavour profile of the beer rather than having a hop driven dark ale. I've got a 3% addition of roasted barley in the current recipe. Last night I managed to find a kilo of roasted wheat in the back of the grainstore. I had planned on using the roasted wheat (1300EBC) for a Pikantus copy but didn't get around to it. I've never used roasted wheat before and I was wondering what flavour contribution it will make if I use, say, 50g / approx. 2oz in a 5 Gallon batch - or is it only good for color? Cheers, Rowan - ---------------------------------------------------- If you have received this transmission in error please notify us immediately by return e-mail and delete all copies.
