It's the 'OCHO' - the EIGHTH Chertsey Beer and Pie Challenge. Get brewing and planning your pie, plus NEW CATEGORY!!!

This year is the EIGHTH year we've done the Beer Festival, so for variously arcane and hard to explain reasons I've decided to call it the OCHO. 

All the shizzle and ting.

Everything you need to know about the rules and categories
Recipe and instructions for the 2015 competition ale

If you can't be bothered to read all that (whatevs) here's the executive summary:

BEERS
1. Make a beer
2. Give it a name and put that name on a label
3. Have it ready for 19 December

PIES
1. Make a pie
2. Remember what you put in it
3. Have it ready for 19 December

FLAVOURED SPIRIT (ODDKA)

1. Make a flavoured spirit (or dig an old one out of the cupboard)
2. Remember what you put in it
3. Have it ready for 19 December


Everything you need to know about entering the Chertsey Beer and Pie Challenge 2015

Here's the skinny.

When and where

The final will be held at 4pm on Saturday 19 December at THE SWAN, Chertsey. This is a venue change, so don't go to The Crown because we won't be there.

Prize categories

BEST BEER 2015

All entries in this category must be a permutation of the competition recipe: Build-Your-Own Ale. With everyone brewing roughly the same thing, it creates a level playing field and ensures this is a challenge based on brewing skill rather than who has the most toys and/or can throw together the fanciest recipe. 

BEST NAME

The name may be of any length and in any language, so long as it fits on the bottle and is acceptable for a (fairly broadminded) family audience. The winner will be selected by popular vote from all beers entered. Competitors will need to make a short presentation to the audience on how they arrived at the name. Again, this may take the form of a short written submission, oral submission (fnar!) or an explanation through the medium of interpretative dance. Additional points for flair. Ballet pumps not provided.

BEST LABEL

This may be of any format or size, so long as it fits on the bottle. The name of the beer must be clearly legible. Competitors must declare (honestly) who created the artwork for their label and must describe the creative journey that led to its creation. Additional merit for flair in presentation. 

BEST PIE

This will be the third year the piemakers join the brewers in holy union. The pie may be of the style, size and recipe of your choosing. Blessed are the piemakers. Life is better with pie.

BEST FLAVOURED SPIRIT

This year there's an all new, exciting, multi-coloured, expansively flavoured category we would call called ODDKA, but for the copyright infringement. It's any spirit plus any flavour your twisted imagination sees fit to marry together in a single bottle. Goodbye Sunday!

SUBMITTING YOUR BEERS, PIES AND ODDKAS

All competitors must submit the following on competition day (all proceeds to charity):

Best Beer

- Two unmarked bottles of your competition beer for the blind taste test.
- One bottle of your competition beer bearing your beer's label and name.

Best Pie

- One unmarked pie for the blind taste test, bearing a card with a brief description of the ingredients. 

Best Oddka

- One unmarked (small) bottle of oddka for the blind taste test.


JUDGING

Best Recipe Beer 2015 will be judged by Hugo Anderson, a professional brewer who is also an all-round smashing bloke and sainted individual. Despite having, in previous years, been catastrophically hung over, Hugo never fails to be a model of professionalism in the face of some fairly 'challenging' ales, many of which I have personally brewed. Each beer will be 'blind tasted' according to a randomised list (so no possibility of favouritism) and will be scored on points given for Taste, Head and Clarity. In the event of a tiebreak, the judge will have the casting vote.

Best Label will be voted for by the brewers and their supporters on a one-person-one-vote basis. The winner will be selected by popular vote.

Best Name will be voted for by the brewers and their supporters on a one-person-one-vote basis. The winner will be selected by popular vote.

Best Pie will be judged by Rob Betteridge, a pie man of the highest order. This is a blind tasting, although if Rob likes it, don't expect too much to be left over.

Best Flavoured Spirit will be judged by the recklessly heroic Colin Carter, former chef, bon vivant and all round good egg. Each oddka will be 'blind tasted' according to a randomised list (so again no possibility of favouritism) and will be scored on Taste alone. In the event of a tiebreak, the judge will have the casting vote.

Build-Your-Own Ale (2015)



It's like Build-a-Bear without the nagging emptiness and crushing sense of exploitation. 

The following recipe will make you 5 gallons - approximately 40 pints (or 32 pints if you make it strong, the way god intended). 

The average cost of a homebrewed pint is about £1. 

Ingredients

You need them. These are the one ones you need. There are plenty of other things you can add, so don't feel restricted. It's your beer. Own it. 

1. Malt Extract 

This is the bedrock of your brew and its job is to provide the sugars for fermentation, the body to your beer and flavour. There are many different types of extract, the main ones being light, medium and dark, each affecting flavour and colour, with darker generally meaning stronger. It comes either as gloopy brown liquid malt extract (LME) in a big can or as powdered dried malt extract (DME or spraymalt) in a bag. The advantage of dried is that it's cheaper and doesn't give you that 'homebrew taste' that Sean always complains about.

2.  Sugar

Like malt extract, the main purpose of this sugar is fermentation, with some responsibility for body and flavour. Some sugars are 100% fermentable and your yeast will eat the lot, leaving no trace in your final beer. Other sugars are non-fermentable, or contain flavours that are non-fermentable, and these hang around in your beer adding specific notes to the taste, like making it sweeter, more caramelly, more cidery, etc. You can use pretty much anything as a source of sugar - glucose, brown sugar, demarara, honey, molasses, etc., with varying effects. Most home brewers use bog standard cane sugar (but not beet - apparently it can make your beer ropey, as I have since discovered after using it last time).

3. Crystal Malt

The main function of your crystal malt, which looks like a hybrid of muesli and fine gravel, is flavour. Basically, it's a malt that they've frigged about with to convert its sugars into stuff that can't be fermented, so it hangs around in your beer imparting flavour. That flavour is the toffee/caramel that you get in virtually all ales. It also brings sweetness. Again, there are heaps of different kinds of crystal malt, broadly ranging from light to dark, with darker being stronger/nuttier.

4. Hops

These supply bitterness, aroma and preservative properties and usually come in tight, vacuum-packed blocks that look a bit like something you might try and hide in your luggage after a long weekend in Amsterdam. It's an indigenous English hardy perennial climber that grows like a weed pretty much wherever you let it. You can pick and dry your own wild hops, but for the sake of consistency and because brewing beer for many is onerous enough, let's stick to cultivated hops. Hops contain acids, that are mainly responsible for bittering, and essential oils which add aroma. Because the essential oils are fragile and don't like being boiled to buggery, hops are usually added in stages, with bittering (or 'coppering') hops going in first and late hops going in right at the end of the boil so their oils survive. You can even dry hop a beer by adding them to the bucket during fermentation. I don't know about you, but I'm learning a lot.

5. Yeast

This tiny fungus is your active ingredient and usually comes in either an air-tight tub or a little foil packet. This is the party starter without which there is no party - it is the single ingredient that will do most to define the success of your beer - so it's really important to get the right one. Any old yeast will not do. There's an entire industry dedicated to cultivating specific yeasts for specific jobs and happily, ale yeast is high on their list of priorities. 

6. Water

Water is water, right? Wrong. Water has two or three variables you need to consider. First, tap water has additives, like halogens, that can affect the taste of your beer. Second, water varies in hardness. Traditional British 'Burton' Ales call for special water, so you may need to add gypsum (calcium sulphate) to your brew. Finally, I said you're going to make 40 pints, but if you use less water (say enough for 32 pints) you'll get stronger alcohol and more intense flavour.


You will also need:

- Beer finings, which clear your beer during its first fermentation (in the bucket) by dragging all those fugging fogging particles down to the bottom.
- More sugar, which you'll use to get second fermentation started when you bottle this bad boy.


Quantities

Malt extract: Between 2.25kg and 3.4kg of the dry stuff. The more you use, the stronger your beer. Add 20% to the weight for liquid extract.

Sugar: This should be in proportion to your malt extract. Go for roughly 15% of the weight of your dry extract. So if you're using 2.25kg of dry malt extract, use 340g of sugar. If you're using liquid malt extract, roughly 12.5% should do it.

Crystal malt: Somewhere between 250g and 400g, depending on how caramelly you want it. It's usual to go for more crystal in a stronger beer, but, hey, whose beer is this?

Bittering hops: These are the ones you're going to boil to buggery. They add the bitter taste, hence the name. Bullion, Brewer's Gold, Target and Challenger are a good bittering hops. Somewhere between 70 - 100g should do it.

Late hops: These are the ones you want for your delicate essential oils. You probably need less - somewhere between 30 - 80g - but again, it's up to you. Fuggles, Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings are, I'm told, very popular.

Yeast: Safale do a good batch of ale yeasts. We've used their No 4 in the past, but I'm sure the others in the series also do a fine job.


Brewing Equipment



You can beg, borrow or share a lot of this stuff with your friends. Or you can buy an off-the-shelf kit for about £20.


- 1 x Stockpot or similarly large saucepan (3 gallon)
- 1 x 5 gallon Fermenting Bucket with Lid
- 1 x Brewing Thermometer
- 1 x Long Handled Spoon (stainless steel or heatproof plastic)
- 4 x Brewing Bags for hops and crystal malt
- 1 x Large Colander or Strainer (metal not plastic)
- 1 x Siphon Tube
- 1 x Funnel
- 1 x Chlorine-based Sterilising Powder

Bottling


You will need bottles sufficient to hold 36 to 40 pints. Equipment listed is for glass bottles with crown caps, because they look great and your beer just tastes better coming out of them.

- 40 x One Pint Bottles (you can either buy these new or recycle commercial ale bottles - these should be the robust, heavy duty type, i.e. Bombardier, not flimsy lager bottles that will blow up during fermentation)
- 1 x 100 Crown Caps (cheapest to buy in bags of 100)
- 1 x Crown Capper (a device that crimps the crown caps onto the bottles)

Alternatively, you can buy Grolsch-style homebrew bottles (don't use actual Grolsch bottles - they will blow up as well), or put them in plastic with screwtop lids. Don't, if you can avoid it. It's just wrong.



Making the Beer

Right, you've got all that stuff. Here's how to bring it all together into beer, glorious beer. Happily, it's dead easy.


Step One



1. Clear the decks. You need a fair amount of space to do this.

2. Sterilise all your equipment (fermenting bucket, thermometer, spoon, etc) according to the instructions on your sterilising powder. Make sure all steriliser is washed off, or it will kill your beer.

3. Fill your 3 gallon stockpot about two-thirds full of tap water (2 gallons or 7.5 litres).

4. Put stockpot full of water on stove.

5. Tie your crystal malt and your bittering hops into a brewing bag. Divide your late hops roughly in two and tie into separate bags, giving you three bags in total. Ensure the tops are tight or the ingredients will escape and float about in your beer.

6. When the stockpot is just starting bubble (NOT boil), slowly stir in your malt extract. If you're using liquid malt extract, warm the can in warm water first to make it runnier. Expect it to foam a lot. Don't panic.

7. Stir. Don't let anything stick to the bottom of the pot. And whatever you do DON'T LET IT BOIL OVER. It's a bugger to get off the stove.

8. As it comes to the boil, add your bag of crystal malt and bittering hops. Keep stirring to hold down the foaming.

9. Boil as hard as you can for 30 mins. Don't put a lid on it - it will only encourage the blighter to foam and boil over. Stir occasionally.

10. At the end of 30 mins, add the first bag of late hops. This will add essential oils.

11. Boil for another 15 minutes, then add the second bag of late hops.

12. After 5 minutes turn off the heat and leave the liquid to stand. Don't be tempted to go for longer. It will destroy all the magic.

13. Boil the kettle. This is to rinse out the bag full of hops and malts.

14. Strain the liquid stockpot mixture (the wort) into your sparklingly clean fermenting bucket, using the colander. Be really careful - hot sugary water burns like nothing else.

15. Rinse the bag of hops and crystal into the fermenting bucket, using the kettle of boiling water.

16. Top the fermenting bucket up to just below the 5 gallon mark with cold tap water and stir with your long-handled spoon.

17. You can now add your sugar, although some people think it's best to let your yeast have a pop at the chewier maltose for a couple of days before adding the much more readily digestible dextrose or sucrose to the mix. This may be nonsense, but if you don't think it is, see step 23.

18. When the temperature of the mix has dropped below 23°C, sprinkle the yeast onto the surface.

19. If you're using an air pump, now is the time. Place in fermenting bucket and let is bubble for about 4 hours, then put the lid on.

20. If you're not using an air pump, put the lid on.

21. Store in a place where the temperature can be maintained steadily somewhere between 17°C and 23°C. You can wrap your bucket in towels to insulate. Check the temperature daily.

22. The brew should start to foam/bubble and ferment after 12 to 18 hours.

23. If you didn't add your sugar at step 17, add it two or three days after the beer went in the bucket. If it's dextrose, be prepared for it to foam like a bastard and possibly attempt to escape. Thus speaks the voice of experience.

Note: Keep the lid on at all times to prevent infection by bacteria, other yeasts that will make your beer go off.


Step 2


1. After 3 to 7 days, fermentation will cease and your beer will stop foaming/bubbling, and go flat.

2. When you're sure fermentation is over, you may want to add finings. These help clear the beer and should be added - and the beer left to stand - according to the instructions on the packet. Once that's done, your beer is ready to bottle.

3. Sterilise your bottles, funnel, syphon and crown caps. Make sure the sterilising solution is washed off completely, or it will kill your beer!

4. Being careful not to stir up the yeast sediment at the bottom, move your fermenting bin back to the kitchen.

5. Pour a half teaspoon of sugar into each bottle. Use the funnel.

6. Siphon your beer into the bottles, being careful to leave 1.5 to 2 inches of air in the top of each.

7. Crown cap your bottles and leave for a minimum of three weeks. Bottles should be stored where the temperature is between 17°C and 23°C.

8. Don't open until the beer has cleared. You can usually tell when this has happened, even with the dark brown bottles, by holding up against the light. If it's clear and you can hear angels singing, it's ready to drink.

Winners and photos from the 2013 Beer and Pie Challenge

So the 2014 Beer and Pie Challenge is upon us and, as per tradition, I have left it until now to post the results for last year's competition. In keeping with previous years, I have attempted to reconstruct events from memories, photographs and fragmentary documentary evidence - an exercise that this year is so bereft it has led me to question whether or not the 2013 Beer and Pie Challenge happened at all.

Listen, I've done the best I can. I think these are the results, but if I've arsed it up, do let me know. I have included Hugo's beer-soaked palimpsest and some other notes that were found tucked in a brew box in the attic. Oh, and I've drawn the following artistic impression of the award ceremony, which I have a vague recollection was terribly moving. If you have anything better, do share.

Kate salutes her own victory in emphatic style
as Ham minesweeps the dregs
We knew it was a potentially explosive mix: the union of beer and pie in a single, festive competition, but sometimes you just have to roll the dice. In the ensuing mushroom cloud of shortcrust pastry and ale suds, all record of the event was strangely lost. Only now has it been reconstructed from old photos, graphic flashbacks and through a series of secret meetings with a shady insider known only as 'Deep Throat'.

Despite losing a fair few of the regular brewers to Christmas engagements, we still racked up a cracking 11 beers in two categories and a wildly impressive array of 12 pies fit to make a Frenchman choke on his petit fours. You are all a credit to the sterling traditions of Beer & Pie and towering examples of can-do spirit.

In addition we raised £50 for the RNLI. Every year we're one step closer to that crucial Chertsey lifeboat. You never know when the big one's coming.

Belated but heartfelt thanks go to our inestimable and often halfway sober beer judge Hugo Anderson; to the happiest man in Chertsey whose cherubic grin said all that needs to be said about the relationship between earthly bliss and a decent slice of pie, our pie judge, Rob Betteridge; and to Tony, the landlord of the Crown, who has apparently spent most of the year in renovations entirely based on the fallout from the Challenge. We salute you.

Pics will shortly be on Flickr and the full results are listed below!

Prize winners and photos from the 2011 Beer Challenge

Another splendid day and another terrific turnout, with 15 beers in five different categories. I really hope you enjoyed it and many thanks to you all for yet another tremendous effort. You are a credit to the fine traditions of brewing and a towering example of can-do spirit.

Not only that, but we collectively raised £146 for disaster relief in Japan. That might not seem a lot when your country is ankle deep in radioactive seawater, but every little helps and thanks for your support.

Extra special thanks go to Hugo, our beer judge, a towering colossus of a man; Tony, the landlord of the Crown, a towering colossus of a Welshman; and Kate H, who narrowly escaped death in judging the ginger beer. She is neither towering, nor, according to our best intelligence, a man.

Happily we have full results this year, because although we did all get titanically drunk, someone less drunk than me remembered to pick them up. As usual, pics from the event are on Flickr (see link) and the placings are listed below. Cheers!

    Prize winners and photos from the 2010 Beer Challenge

    The results are a bit late and a bit incomplete, on account of the fact that I was a quite drunk by the end of the day and very probably threw away the deranged daubings that counted as score sheets for the labels and names. My bad. Happily, I still have Hugo's immaculate and complete score sheet for best beer, so I've listed first to third for labels/names, but included full results for best beer.

    Really hope you enjoyed the day. For me, this picture of Big Gay Al winning best beer really captures the spirit of the occasion.
