Hellenichomebrewers first brewing competition

Post by nik » 1 year ago

Here in Greece we managed to create our association and among other events we made our first competition. This was a cooperation with a local brewery which will brew the wining recipe. The judges where from Greek national technical institute of brewing department a bjcp member and homebrewers the style was smoked ale.
There were 49 entries we had great time and learned a lot.
Here is a small video.

There was only one beer style dictated by the brewery and it was a hybrid style smoked beer and amber ale (less bitterness amber colour and smoked flavour) sounds easy but it was tricky so every body brew the same style.
Personaly I made a classic smoked beer with pils malt and lightly hopped with tettnager hops some caramel malt , munich and smoked malt and used us 05 .But I was a little overshoot carbonation and lost probably points .Otherwise It was drinkable but the major problem was that I dont like smoked beers and I had quite a few bottles left so I am on the awkward position to consume them.

I wish I could somehow to embed subtitles on the video but I am not familiar with that stuff. There weren't said something important as it were random parts of the event montaged together. The speach parts referred to the winners and generall comments about the Greek homebrewing scene.

Bottom line is that we trying to get Greek homebrewers involved.
We have so far arrange an off flavor seminar, some brewdays and several meetings and we hope to gather all Greek homebrewers under our association in order to accomplish more interesting events for the community.
