My apologies to the homebrewers on my lack of updates as of late. This is something I hope to fix coming into the new year. I mean “New Year, New You” right? Anywho, things discussed at the February meeting are as follows.
Styles of the quarter for 2019.
- March (really May): Barrel + Beam yeast challenge (brew any beer using Barrel + Beam yeast, which the brewery has donated)
- June: Brut IPA
- September: Fest Beer
- December: English Porter
Since someone, who will remain unnamed, forgot to update the website in time the Barrel + Beam yeast challenge has been pushed to May. At the March Brewers meeting, a talk and discussion will take place regarding the B+B yeast and yeast will be distributed; tasting and judging will take place at the May meeting.
We have an April Big Brew day scheduled for the 13th with a tentative location of Barrel and Beam. We will be tasting and judging the annual brewing contest beers that day as well.
Speaking of April. If you are interested submitting beers for the annual brewing contest, to be judged by local breweries, please do so at the April meeting. This year we are limiting it to two(2) beers per brewer.
