Tara mentioned at the AGM she wanted to organize a Brewer’s Olympics and I can’t get the ideas out of my head so I wanted to jot them here to get the events to take shape. So far in my head I have:
Blind measurement. For example, can you pour 1kg of grain, 50g of hops, and 2g of salts without seeing the scale? How close?
Name that ingredient. Rub a hop, taste some grain, drink a salt adjusted water. Can you name the ingredients?
Reverse engineer a beer. Given a sample of a SMASH (single malt and single hop) beer, can you guess the malt, hop, and yeast? What is the carbonation level? abv? FG?
I also know @crash_alt also mentioned a grain bag carrying competition.
What are other ideas??
