What good is winning medals at homebrew competitions if you don’t brag about it? Wort members Ian Anderson and DT have got the Worts trophy case up and running so we can now keep track of the straight up domination of our club in homebrew competitions across the country.
In addition, the trophy case comes with a little competition. Score points for winning medals, and at the end of the year we’ll see who fared the best this year.

It’s that time of year again, the Boston Wort Processors Annual Holiday Party! Once again, our friends at Samuel Adams have been generous to offer to host us at the Pickwick pub (30 Germania St, Boston MA). Plan on coming down to Jamaica Plain, Friday December 7th from 5 PM to 830 PM.
The holiday party will also serve as our December meeting, so it will be your last chance to attend a Worts event before the New Year.
More details on potluck, beer share, etc. to follow. Hope to see everyone there!
The American Homebrewers Association is hosting a members rally in our neck of the woods, at Night Shift Brewing. This is a great opportunity to keep up the momentum we have from NHC to continue to make AHA aware of our kick ass club, and to also interact with other local homebrewers who are parts of other clubs, or possibly looking for a club to join. Come on out for all or part of the rally and you’ll definitely see some friendly faces. Make sure to wear your Worts t-shirt!

Are you interested in trying some of the best homemade cider in the country? Are you interested in making your own cider? If you answered yes to either or both of these questions, you need to check out the Boston Wort Processors annual Ciderfest coming up on Sunday 10/21 from 12-3 PM.
We’ll head up to Cider Hill Farms in Amesbury (45 Fern Ave, Amesbury, MA 01913) to hang out, try each other’s ciders/beers, and enjoy what will hopefully be a lovely fall day.
In addition Glenn & Karen at Cider Hill has offered to arrange a bulk cider buy for the club. This will be a custom blend of unfiltered, unpasteurized cider. The price is $6/gallon, which is approximately 25% off retail. Ideally, we’d like to set a 5 gallon minimum purchase. I’d like to get him a head count of how many people will attend the event and a count of how many gallons we’d like to buy. If you’d like to buy cider but won’t be able to attend the event, please make arrangements to have someone pick up your cider on your behalf. All cider MUST be picked up during CiderFest on 10/21.
We are on schedule to get a tour with Son Chadd the cidermaker too. For those that have been in the past, he’s a wealth of knowledge and his ciders are winning major awards!
*If you’ll be able to join us for Ciderfest and/or if you would like to order cider, please sign up HERE
Glenn needs to know how many gallons we’d like to order, so *please sign up no later than Tuesday 10/16*. Please note that this sign up is just for a count. We will send out a separate link for payment.
The next Club meeting will be on Tuesday October 16th, starting at 8 PM, in the Belmont Craft Beer Cellar Beercierge Space.
As a lead up to some of our upcoming experiments, a few worts will be preparing some “malt teas” made with different specialty grains to allow members to better understand their flavors, and the impact of temperature on flavor.
