Boss Hop – The Inaugural IPA Championship of New England
The Notch Infinite Jest Clone Competition Judging will take place on Sunday, June 11th (exact time TBD). We will once again be throwing down our club brewing chops against BFD. We will be hosted by Chris Lohring at Notch Brewing in Salem. All who brewed are welcome to join and we encourage all club members to sign up to judge or steward. If you brewed for the competition but are unable to join for judging day, you will need to make arrangements for your entries to be transported to Notch.
Meeting will be held at Robert Lindsley’s place in Somerville. We will be tasting the latest club IPA experiment where 2 barrels of IPA were brewed. 1 barrel received water treatment and 1 barrel did not and each barrel was split into smaller batches for fermentation with several different yeast. Bring your hoppy homebrews if you have them!
Please see the listserv for the specific address, or if you are not yet a member and would like to attend, use our contact form to get the location.
The next club batch is an IPA. This time we will be varying the yeast to see what effect it has on the beer. Half of the batch we will also be varying the water chemistry to see how noticeable it is. The plan is to do the brew as a double batch off Todd & BK’s 1 bbl setup to limit variability. If you can’t make it, but would still like to participate you are certainly welcome to do it on your own.
This is a members in good standing only event.
