Ilkley Brewery / Leeds Homebrew Competition

We have been in touch with Ilkley Brewery following our homebrew meet on the 26th April, and are very pleased to be announcing an Ilkley Brewery / Leeds Homebrew competition.

So, if you would like the opportunity to get up close and personal with the shiny brew kit in the photo, then read on and start planning a brew day!

Ilkley have set the challenge of brewing a low ABV beer to the following specification:

Style - American Brown Ale
Target OG - 1038
Colour - Amber/Red
Bitterness - 35 EBU
Hops - up to you!
Yeast - up to you!
Water treatment -  up to you!

Entries will be judged by the Ilkley brewers and the winning entry will be scaled up and produced by Ilkley as their autumn beer.  If that wasn't enough, the winning brewer will be invited to brew the first Gyle. I think the appropriate word to use here is AWESOME!

Deadline for entries to be delivered to the locations below, is Saturday 14th July.

Entries should be bottled in 2x500ml brown bottles, with gold crown caps, and posted to:

Beer Paradise Limited
Unit 20, Centre Park
Marston Moor Business Park
YO26 7QF

Or bottles can be left at Beer Ritz, Headingley (14 Weetwood Lane, LS16 5LX) on or before the submission date (Saturday 14th July).  Please mark the parcel in some way with 'Ilkley Homebrew Competition' and include your name, contact telephone number and details of your recipe with your entry.  It would be helpful if these details were printed and stuck to the bottles as a label.
