Mead Class and Brew

On Saturday, June 10 Roger Taylor and John Aitchison will be leading a Mead Class, Tasting, and Brew.  It will be held at Tavern Services Warehouse at 18217 Parthenia in Northridge.  Mead makers will get to taste a bunch of meads, learn more on how it's made and take home a gallon in a glass bottle which is provided.  We're making a cherry ciser with King Orchard's Montmerency Cherry Juice.  Honey and juice are expensive, the whole thing costs $50.  You can get additional mead for $20 a gallon as well.  Downright cheap compared to the cost of buying mead.

Most of these sites will be unlike a shop brew - there will be no wort for members to take home. Instead, brewers will signup and on Saturday, March 25th you'll go to your chosen location and hang out, learn and help out.

February Club Shop Brew Session - BIPA With Matt

Join Board Publicity Director Matt Myerhoff in a Belgian IPA on Sunday, February 26 at the Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop. Here are the top-rated examples. Belgian IPA, (Category 21B, Specialty IPA) is a pretty new style, emerging in the mid 2000s. Homebrewers and microbreweries simply substituted Belgian yeast in their American IPA recipes. Belgian breweries added more hops to their tripel and pale ale recipes, so there are all different styles among the great ones, including Brewery Vivant Triomphe, Houblon Chouffe, Epic Brainless IPA, Green Flash Le Freak, Stone Cali-Belgique, and Flying Dog's Raging Bitch. This one will have some of the rich, creamy mouthfeel and strong complex yeast aromas of a Belgian blonde, with a wild bouquet of hops.

Falconsclaws Simplified

This is the 2016 edition of the infamous Falconsclaws recipe. The older recipes from 1999-2001 needed additional ingredients like sugars and extracts because we didn't have enough system capacity to try and hit that magically ridiculous 1.140 gravity. Seriously, it's nuts. But thanks to the club's awesome 50 gallon system, we could actually mash enough grain to make this thing happen! (Hat Tip to Kevin Baranowski for the original series of beers)D

January 2017 Shop Brew - Falcons Claws With Drew

The December Shop Brew Session had to be postponed to Sunday, January, January 15. The signups are carried with the date, including the wait list.

Board Member & Grand Hydrometer Drew Beechum will lead the crew in brewing Falcons Claws, the our version of Samichlaus, a monster dark Swiss lager that was once the strongest beer in the world at 14% ABV. It started in 1979 when Swiss-based Hürlimann Brewery decided to brew a Christmas lager on December 6—St. Nicholas Day (feast day). Until its doors closed in 1997, Hürlimann Brewery produced Samichlaus every year on December 6, and built up a loyal fan base along the way. Be ready for a year of lagering before bottling, and you'll be enjoying it next Christmas by the fire! READ MORE.

Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition Winners

 

2017 Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition!

It's that time of year again when we fondly remember our compadre Doug King. Doug was a brewer's brewer - always there to lend a hand to the club or another brewer. He was also fond of experimentation and was well known for his crazy experiments (loafs of rye bread, potatoes, tortillas - all in the mash) and his love of lagers. He won the 1996 California State Fair for his Dougweiser.
