Castle Rock Homebrew Supply is hosting its first homebrew competition. The Bier Garten Homebrew Competition starts at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18th at the shop, 1043 Park Street (Behind the Gun Shop) in Castle Rock.
The competition will be a brewers choice. All homebrewers who attend will get one vote per category for favorite beer. Please bring your beer in 30 minutes early or in the week leading up if you cannot attend.
Rules: Bring two bottles unlabeled. There will be at least two categories: German Biers and other Beer. Prizes will result.

The March 28 edition of Basic Brewing Radio featured Alamosa-based Colorado Malting Company. Jason Cody, president of the Colorado Malting Company, talks about how his family farm went from being a grain supplier for Coors Brewing Co. to becoming a maltster of craft malt.

Cody, and podcast host James Spencer also talk about unique grains that the company is malting. A Colorado home brewer sent Spencer a beer made with 10 pounds of two-row and one pound of malted sunflower seeds from Colorado Malting Co. Apparently the sunflower seeds add to head retention and give the beer an earthy flavor.
