Our September meeting will be hosted by Matt D. at his place in Somerville on Wednesday evening, September 27. We will have a special guest lecture by Kate Steblenko, Beer Scientist at Jack’s Abby, on the topic of quality control in brewing – “When Good Bugs Go Bad: Detection of Beer Spoiling Microorganisms in a Mixed Fermentation Environment“.
Bring homebrew, especially mixed or wild ferments and those with unexpected flavors (good or bad). If you are not a club member, but would like to attend, get in touch using our contact form.
Our August meeting will be hosted by Nathan at his place in Somerville on Saturday afternoon, August 5. We’ll have an outdoor space and a tent in the event of inclement weather. This meeting will cover our Saison process experiment, so get your tasters ready! As always, bring homebrew if you’ve got it and/or commercial examples if you don’t.
Please sign up on the sheet sent via email so we have an approximate headcount and can coordinate food.
We are adding an additional meeting to the calendar for May. We will be conducting a taste test of our most recent club exbeeriment on using different base malts. There will also be BHC awards passed out and we’ll be having a drop-off for the Clone Competition.
The April 2016 meeting will be held tonight in Somerville at Ian’s place (address sent on the mailing list). The meeting will be focused around sampling the most recent club experiment batch, where multiple members brewed the same base Irish Extra Stout recipe, but each brewer varied the roast malt used, and in some cases added the malt at different times.
During the business portion of the meeting we’ll be soliciting help for multiple BHC-related tasks, especially judging, in hopes that after people have a beer or two the power of suggestion is greater.
As always, bring beer! If you need the address, get in touch using our contact form.
