Spring is the time of the year with the most competitions. The cool winter weather make it easier for home brewers to make their best beer with minimal temperature control equipment, or none at all! Scheduling your brew days with styles that will peak in the spring will give your beer the best chance and scoring awards.
If you have brewed your recipe many times, you probably know when your beer tastes the best. But if you are trying something new, the Brew Calendar by Style is designed to assist brewers interested in optimizing their beer for competitions by providing a guideline of when your beer will be at its peak. Variables such as ABV, IBUs, SRM and storage conditions will all dictate the optimum aging period for your brew. Remember this is only a guide, so don’t worry about trying to hit the middle of the peak range for the style you are brewing. Happy brewing!
