Black Box Challenge Homebrew Comp is on!

Post by henry » Mon Mar 04, 2019 5:39 pm

Hi everyone.
A number of you have contacted me recently asking if our annual home-brew competition, the Blakc Boc Challenge is on again this year.
Well it is, and there's a slight new twist to it.
Fire up your mash tuns and kettles, and register here:

See you all soon

Yeah I was wondering when you say record if you mean one song or one album

A whole album! That's going to be a long session for the presentations if we listen to a whole album from all the finalists!

What the hell I'm already signed up and not expecting to get that far anyway!

Anyone pick up their ingredients yet? My bag doesn’t have the list of grains and labels. And it is lighter than in past years.

You are probably like me...I picked up 2 bags that were actually shorted 3.5kg of 2-row. Both bags I picked up also had an extra bag of spice. If there are 2 ppl out there missing the spice let me know. I can return it to the hop yard when I get the remaining grain or can try to make arrangements to get it to you.

I have a bag of malt with no label, it contains 3.6kg of a light malt. I'm assuming the label missing is a mistake? I have one of the same size labeled canadian 2-row. Does anyone have a label for the other 3.5kg bag or is that a mystery malt?

Also I'm assuming we aren't supposed to have a label for the spice?

It’s also 2-row. I found an email in my inbox a little while ago from Henry listing the ingredients. Everyone should get 7kg of 2-row.

Be creative with the album! Get a feel for what your beer tells you and what you'd enjoy listening to while you drink it.
That's what I want you to share with the judges (and with the group!)
