Iron Brewer Competition

November 18, 2009

Last night our homebrew club got together for our monthly meeting and we judged the 16 Iron Brewer entries for round 1.  My Fruity Pebbles beer somehow won and I’m moving to the 2nd round.  I suppose it paid off for getting the fucking shaft on the last round because I landed coconut extract as the secret ingredient for round 2.  The other dudes got stuck with peppermint extract, anise and blue agave syrup.

Seriously, peppermint extract? I feel for you guys that have to dick with this.  If I pulled anise from the hat I probably would have forfeited since I can’t stand that shit.

The real coincidence here is that a coconut milk stout was next in line for me to brew if I lost the last round.  Last month I stopped by Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis and had a special release called “Three Hour Tour“.  It’s a coconut milk stout that since my first drink has had me fiending to brew something similar.  I’ve reached out to one of the brewers up there for recipe and process hints on their beer.  Hopefully they’ll call back.

As for the Fruity Pebbles wheat beer, local St. Louisans are more than welcome to get some of this shit since I need to make room for beers that I’ll actually drink.  Serg- I’m sending your shit out once it get’s bottled.
