Depends on the criteria. If it's a BJCP sanctioned comp unfortunately it can only be entered as "specialty beer".

I brewed this for the second time now. I mashed a little differently which left me with far more volume collected before boiling. Time did not allow me to boil it all off. Because of this I fermented about a gallon more than I would have liked. I plan to eliminate the extra by eising before kegging. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

Brewing up a Mr. Beer sized extract version of this right now. Subbing the Centenial with .5 oz magnum and .5oz cascade because thats what I had and threw in 2 oz of amber candy sugar because I had it. Ill post back when its bottled for a bit.

Also gonna dry hop with some Warrior. Pretty much just stealing your base and hopping on my own .

I brewed the extract version of this and it came out dark brown. Not black at all. It tastes awesome, but I was hoping for that black color. It has no toasty taste like the widmer does. Do you think the local LHBS subbed something and it got by me or didn't say anything?

I guess I will have to brew it again, darn all the bad luck.

I brewed the extract version several months ago. Mine was a real dark reddish brown when it went into the fermenter, however it was black coming out of the bottles! It's gone now, I need to brew it again!!!

Yeah I don't know what you did wrong. Mine is jet black. Opaque. here is my extract:



It is amazing. Great job on the recipe. I modified it a bit as I always do.

Same grains/extract, added some belgian candied sugar.
Hop bill was:
.5 oz Magnum at 60
.5 Cascade at 60
1 Cascade at 45
1 Willamette at 25
.5 Cascade at 0
.5 Warrior at 0
Dry hop 1 oz citra for 10 days.

Yes, strange bill but it's what I had and what I wanted to try out for a nice hoppy black ipa. Came out awesome.
