June 2019 Club Shop Brew Session - Elkwood Wheat With Fletch

Join Treasurer and Brewgyver Kent Fletcher on Saturday, June 29 to brew Kent's medal-winning Elkwood Wheat beer for the June 2019 Club Shop Brew Session. 

Saturday, June 29, 2019
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Everyone Participates, from Start to Finish 
The brew session will use the Club's 40 gallon all grain system at the homebrew shop. There are 5 spots on this brew crew, including the crew leader(s), and the Falcon's Shares, which will be poured at the 45h annivsary ball. All Brew Crew members will participate in all aspects of the brewing process from measuring and crushing the grain to clean up and fermentation. Yeast will be provided, unless otherwise announced. We need one crew member to step forward to ferment the Falcon's Share at home!

Economical & Educational 
Unless otherwise announced, yeast will be provided for participants, but you may also choose to use your own yeast. Each participant will pitch in for the cost of ingredients (usually $10-$15 cash), 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. Bring a carboy, bucket or keg for your wort, or buy one in the shop.
