Brew Session

Brew with a Falcon Day

When I was but a wee lad of a brewer I read ever brewing book that I could get my hands on just trying to get everything I could learn crammed into my head. I saw different configurations of systems and learned different techniques. From MB Raines, I learned the wisdom of prepping your yeast for their hard road ahead (seriously, a starter when I began in 1999 was still looked on as fussy and not really necessary). From Bruce Brode and Brian Vessa, I learned the power of a strange ingredient or two (Kix in this case).

40th Anniversary Mead Brew

Come Join Mead Master Bruce Brode and Grand Hydro Drew as they tackle making 25 gallons of various flavored meads for the club's 40th Anniversary! Sign up to let us know if you'll be joining us before the April Club Meeting and helping us out. We also have a need for a few additional 5 gallon carboys so if you can help us out. (Please note - unlike a shop brew carboy bearers will not take a portion of mead home for themselves. All mead is designated for the club. We will make it so that every carboy provider gets a little "thank you" for loaning us their vessels.)

Dec. 29 Club Shop Brew - Old Smokey Barleywine

The December Club Shop Brew on Sunday, Dec 29, will bring back a recipe that has become a club legend -  Old Smokey Barleywine. Join brew crew leader Richard Webster to brew this famously delicious barleywine using Falcon Tom Wolf's original recipe, which has won too many awards to name here. This is a big, rich, deep, complex beer that needs love and a long fermentation time, so we must brew it now to have it ready to pour at the Maltose Falcons 40th Anniversary Banquet.

September 15th - Shop Brew Session

Our monthly Club Shop Brew is scheduled for Sunday, September 15th at 8:00 a.m. Esteemed Board Member Cullen Davis (me, Mr. Publicity Director!) has volunteered to lead the session this month to make some fine and delicious stout. We have not yet decided on which of the various subspecies of stouts we will brew, but the brewer tends to favor the richer, fuller-bodied side of the spectrum. Regardless of the exact recipe, it will be a fun and enlightening session as usual.
