Club activities
  • Barrel project updates
    • We recently emptied a barrel at Kevin’s house. It contained a saison, and we refilled it with a Golden Strong. The saison is full-bodied and has a very strong oak aroma, with an intense buttery flavor. It drinks almost like a chardonnay, but with a long, bitter finish. If I recall correctly, there weren’t enough Golden Strong contributions, so we left some saison in the barrel and added the Golden Strong on top of it.
    • The other barrel ...

August 2015 Meeting Minutes

We had a great turnout this month, it was good to see a lot of familiar faces and a few new ones (including Mickey…or Mikey???). The Mosaic challenge went great, lots of fantastic entries, and we have a lot of upcoming activities to look forward to outside of our regular monthly meetings. Special thanks to Roger for all his help with the comp, I can’t imagine how unorganized this would have been without his help.

I also really enjoy having the ...

Mosaic Hop distribution – there’s still a few of you that need to get your hops, get in touch and let’s get brewing. You still have plenty of time with ...
