Still plenty of spots for tomorrow's shop brew. We will be brewing a Belgian Golden Strong Ale (Think Duvel, Russian River Damnation, Delirium Tremens, Piraat, or North Coast Pranqster).
These are great "gateway' beers if you are interested in branching out into the Belgian styles but haven't acquired a taste for horse-blanket mixed with goat sweat yet. And, if you don't have refrigeration, don't worry! The yeast I got should be fine for this weather. And they beauty of Belgian ales is, you can treat them like your red-headed step-child or a rented mule, and they still turn out well. Not nearly as fussy as a lot of styles. So sign up and prepare for a great day in the sun! And you'll get 5 gallons of beer for 10-15 bucks. You can't beat that!
Our monthly Club Shop Brew is scheduled for next Sunday, August 18th at 8:00 a.m. Esteemed Board Member David Uhl has volunteered to lead the session this month. The style has not yet been settled but Dave has some good ideas about what to brew. Regardless what he ends up making, it should be a fun and enlightening session as usual. A note of caution, however, there may be a potential conflict for the session leader so it may be that the session will be rescheduled or we might try to find a different leader. Updates will be posted here as they arise.
All Brew Crew members will be brewing on the Falcons 40 gallon all grain brew system located at the Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop in Woodland Hills. Crew members will participate in all aspects of the brewing process from measuring and crushing the grain to clean up and fermentation. Each participant will take home 5 gallons of wort to ferment at home at a really cheap price. It’s a great deal for great beer and hands-on brewing experience! So remember to bring some cash to cover your share of the brew and a carboy or a bucket to put it in.
Crew, you must be an up to date, paid in full Maltose Falcons member. Your membership status will be verified prior to you being confirmed for a spot on the Crew.
You must sign up here and email me your full name and phone number (cell #’s are best) at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can confirm your membership and contact you if there is any problems with your membership or with the brew itself. No exceptions.
We welcome new members, or members who have not yet been on a Brew Crew, to sign up for this event. If you have been on a Brew Crew within the past 3 months, you are NOT eligible to be on this crew unless the crew does not fill up by brew day. Signups are at the end of this event blog in the sign up section. No sign ups will be accepted via the yahoogroups or email to the crew leader or the publicity director. There are only 8 spots on the Crew, one of which is the crew leaders' so there are only 7 open crew slots and signups are on a first-come, first-serve basis and tend to fill quickly. Once the crew is filled, one or more person may be wait-listed in case a crew member can't make it on brew day.
Of course anyone who is interested in observing the all grain brewing process is welcome to come by the shop to hang out and chat with the Crew. Beer and snacks to share are always welcome. Make it a part of your day to stop on by to support the club and the crew.
