Sure we have 2 a half months. We fired through the Extra IPA voting pretty quickly.

My main reasoning is just that literally any brewery can churn out an Extra IPA whereas we've a real opportunity for something interesting at Yellowbelly. Doesn't necessarily have to be a sour either but I know Declan will be up for sourcing any hops, malts or yeast we want (within reason).

They don't, though. There's a real shortage of US-hopped pale ales around the 6-7% ABV mark in Ireland. It's a format that would be great in cans too.

I'll take excellent over interesting any day.

I meant more that the Extra IPA could be Beoir#4. Whereas it's unlikely the next brewery in line will make us a sour, never mind a canned one.

For the brewing? Sat 18th Feb in Wexford seems to be the date.

Afternoon lads. I'm here to help get this over the line.
Style (Yes we can do interesting, but John has a point and we have some exceptional hops available)
ABV (I'm easy)
Malts (we use Castle, Best & Weyermann)
Hops (would it be better for me to list what I have?)
Yeast (I just need 2 weeks notice to either purchase or build up the desired strain. No bacterial strains in the new place yet though)

18th February wont be a runner I'm afraid. I'll be in Belgium, week after that we are brewing with Boundary. 4th/11th March could be a runner?

4th/11th of March doesn't suit myself but that's grand if it suits the majority. Someone else will just have to promise to take pictures. :wink:

The 4th is the National Homebrew Competition, so I guess we are aiming for the 11th- It's Paddy's weekend the week after that.

Don't think I'd be able to do the 11th. What about 5th?

Actually March 11th can in fact suit me just fine. The course I was planning can be done in May.

I'll be at the festival tomorrow yeah. Back up to plough on with the brewery then on Friday.
I certainly don't want the brew to clash with any other events to encourage maximum participation.
