So that Scotch Ale only placed third in the home brew competition, but after my other third and first finishes, they declared me the brewer of the year!
It got quite a bit of press when it was first announced:http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... -1.3518357http://www.canadianbeernews.com/2016/04 ... ewed-beer/
On Saturday I brewed 2000L with the head brewer at Bad Tattoo. It's sort of a Belgian-inspired cherry wit. We'll add 100L of cherry juice when the primary fermentation slows down. Grain bill was 5% acidulated malt, with the rest split between pilsner and toasted wheat. We're using the faux brett yeast (WLP644), and it should finish around 4.4% abv.
I'm planning to harvest some of that yeast and do a tart wheat for home as well.
