Wort Share & Homebrew Competition @ Southern Yankee Beer Company

We’re hosting our first ever Wort Share Homebrew Competition! Starting from the same blank slate wort that we’ll brew, each competitor will take the wort and make it their own–Preston Brown at The Grain Cellar can help you out with any of your ingredient needs!

The entry fee includes 6 gallons of wort, expert judging, and the winner brews their beer on Southern Yankee’s brewhouse with Head Brewer Sydney Porter. Tickets go on sale May 11th @ 10 am.

WHEN: Brewing for wort pickup May 25th, 2019 @ 12 pm. Competition – TBD and announced for mid-July

WHERE: Southern Yankee Beer Company, 930 FM 1960, Suite G, Houston, TX 77073

WHAT: Bring a Container to receive the Wort. This will be a rather blank canvas on which the recipe can be designed around: 2Row, Vienna, Munich, and a little Cara-pils. The base will be 1.049 SG wort, and what you do with it after is up to you!

WHO: A single person or a team is allowed. Only one entry per person/team. You will be responsible for deciding the other ingredients you will need, such as hops, yeast, and other additions. If you desire to do a sour, only Kettle Sours are allowed. We will need 3 blank bottles with a tag on it with the Style, Projected ABV, and Team Name at competition time.

COMPETITION: About 6 weeks after the wort share, we will hold a competition at Southern Yankee Beer Co. where a panel of judges will do blind tastings for which beer they deem the best execution of the desired style. Southern Yankee Beer Co will brew the winning beer with the winner/winners and serve it at their brewery! There will also be 2nd and 3rd Place prizes.

$22 for 6 gallons of wort! ONLY 20 ENTRIES ALLOWED THIS YEAR SO SIGN UP ASAP!
