Missing Ingredient
Homebrew Competition


Missing Linck Festival features brews made from the yeast found in the F. & J.A. Linck Brewery fermentation tanks -- Cincinnati's official heritage yeast strain. As part of the festival, Urban Artifact Brewing Co. is sponsoring the Missing Ingredient Homebrew Competition! This is the rules and deets and whatnot:

Step One: Get on the bus. Sign up here!


Yeast is provided by Urban Artifact at no charge! You must
request yeast through the form at:


Entries should be hand delivered during taproom hours or
shipped to Urban Artifact between May 15 – May 29 2022. 1660
Blue Rock Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45223.


Judging will be on June 3, with results announced at the
Festival on June 4.


Judging will be done by a combination of pro brewers and
BJCP judges. While base style/intention will be considered,
the judges will also factor in general enjoyment, creativity,
and fit with the Missing Linck yeast.


You will receive an email with an entry number and bottle
form by early May. 3 bottles per entry.


The “aged” versions of the Missing Linck will be judged at
the same time. (Yeast was distributed summer, 2021).


There is no entry fee for this competition.

You may request more than 1 packet of yeast.
Co-pitching of a companion yeast is allowed!
Any questions – contact Roxanne Westendorf at .
