July 1....and you could win some!  Here are strain descriptions and contest rules....

For Q3, Denny and Drew have chosen a bunch of yeast strains to take advantage of the summer heat to make some damn fine beer! Here are the Q3 strains (releasing to homebrew shop in July 2017!)
3739-PC FLANDERS GOLDEN ALE™

    This well-balanced strain from northern Belgium will produce moderate levels of both fruity esters and spicy phenols while finishing dry with a hint of malt. Flanders Golden Ale is a robust and versatile strain that performs nicely in a broad range of Belgian styles.

3789-PC TRAPPIST STYLE BLEND™

    A unique blend of Belgian Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces for emulating Trappist style beer from the Florenville region in Belgium. Phenolics, mild fruitiness, and complex spicy notes develop with increased fermentation temperatures. This blend will produce subdued but classic Brett character.

3822-PC BELGIAN DARK ALE™

    This unique Belgian ale yeast is a high acid producer with balanced ester and phenol production allowing a good expression of malt profile, especially the strong flavors of darker malts and sugars. Spicy, tart, and dry on the palate with a very complex finish.

Now the question is - what would you make with these strains? Winners get to brew them!
The High Level:

Pick a yeast, generate your recipe, give it an awesome name and email contest@experimentalbrew.com by July 31st!. Denny, Drew and folks from Wyeast will evaluate the entries for quality, fun and expression of the best of Wyeast's strains characters!
The Rules:

    Send entries to contest@experimentalbrew.com
    Entries must be received by 11:59PM on July 31st 2017
    One entry per person (not per strain)
    Winners of each yeast will be picked Drew, Denny and representives from Wyeast.
    Three (3) winners will be chosen, one per yeast strain, and will receive swag and prizes from Experimental Brewing & Wyeast
    Winners agree to let Wyeast use, distribute and publish the recipes
    Judging is completely subjective and winners will be chosen by the judges opinions of the entries quality and expression of the fun and interest of brewing. (aka it looks good to the judges!)

Pretty cool they got a blend to mimic Orval.  I will definitely have to give that one a try.

I have used that Flanders Golden Ale yeast in the past, and loved it.

So Wyeast won't spring for the ingredients to brew 100 gallons of imperial double 22% quad? ;D
I usually brew three gallons on the stove, but I guess I could formulate a five gallon recipe; to make it easy on you and Drew.  :)
