April Shop Brew - Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Our monthly Club Shop Brew is set for Sunday April 8th at 8:00 a.m. Our Club Activities Director, Kris Schmidt, will be leading this crew with the brewing of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. All Brew Crew members will be brewing on the Falcons 30 gallon all grain brew system located at the Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop in Woodland Hills. Members will participate in all aspects of the brewing process from measuring and crushing the grain to clean up. Each participant will then take home 5 gallons of wort to ferment at home at a really cheap price for this style beer. Actually this is one of the most expensive Shop Brews the Club has ever done. (Approx. $40 each) It is still a great deal for a big beer like this! So remember to bring some cash to cover your share of the brew. Also this is a big high gravity beer (OG 1.100+), members of the Brew Crew have to realize that this strong beer needs allot of time to ferment out and then months to mature, so this beer should be ready for Oktoberfest with 4+ months of aging behind it.

To be eligible to be on any Brew 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 of a spot on the Crew. You must email me your full name and contact number (cell #’s are best) at publicity@maltosefalcons.com 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.

Signups are on a first come, first serve basis and tend to fill quickly. Of course anyone who is interested in observing the all grain brewing process is welcome to come by the shop to hang out and party 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.
