July Club Shop Brew Session - Belgian Tripel!

Falcons, sign up now for the next fantastic monthly Club Shop Brew Session, coming up on Sunday, July 20, as Falcons Board Activities Director Chris Moon and Alex Samovitz lead the crew to brew a delicious Belgian Tripel!! This is Chris and Alex's first time leading the club brew session, so come join them.

They're using a recipe inspired Westmalle's Tripel, with Belgian candi sugar, which crew members will make during the brew day. Chris and Alex will be bringing the yeast, White Labs WLP 530.

Tripel is a Low Countries strong ale first brewed in 1931 and first named Tripel in 1956 by the Trappist brewery at Westmalle, Belgium, to rename the strongest beer in their range. Westmalle Tripel was widely copied by the breweries of Belgium, and now, the term is applied by a range of secular brewers to define a strong ale in the style of Westmalle Tripel.

Sign up now for what promises to be another great brewing day!

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 pitch in for the cost of ingredients (usually $10-$15), and take 5 gallons of wort to ferment at home. So it's very economical and a great opportunity to get some hands-on brewing experience on a larger, more sophisticated brewing system than most homebrewers have access to, learn new recipes, and, of course, a chance to hang out with your fellow Falcons and share brews and snacks. Remember to bring some cash for your share of the ingredients and a carboy or a bucket for your wort.

To participate, you must be an up-to-date, dues-paid Maltose Falcons member. Your membership status will be verified prior to your spot being confirmed on the brew crew. You must sign up here by clicking the "Sign up for April Club Shop Brew" link below. Please email me your FULL NAME and CELL PHONE NUMBER at publicity@maltosefalcons.com so we can confirm your membership and contact you if there is any problems with your membership or with the brew day 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 spots are left empty by brew day. Signups are at the end of this event posting. No sign ups will be accepted via the yahoogroups or email to the crew leader or the publicity director. There are only 7 spots on the Crew, since we're setting aside a Falcon's share for the club's 40th anniversary events. Please volunteer to babysit the Falcon's share!

Signups are on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the crew is filled, there may be a waiting list in case a crew member can't make it on brew day. Brew Crew Members, please arrive on time and be prepared to stay until brew day is over, which includes cleaning and stowing all equipment, utensils, work area, and classroom. That may be after 4:00 pm.

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.
