Next Brew Day: 10/3 and 10/15

22 Sep

Next two brew days are scheduled.

Monday, 10/3, 6pm. Rookie Night!
On 10/3 we’re instituting a new feature of the CDBC: Rookie Night!
If you haven’t yet brewed, and are interested in brewing your own beer, or if you’re still getting a handle on the process and don’t want to dive into all-grain brewing, we’re going to get together on the first Monday of every month to help you. We’ll brew an extract batch, which is FAR easier than all-grain. New and beginning brewers will be invited to pick the recipe and brew the beer, with as much help and guidance from the experienced brewers as they want! We’ll bottle three weeks later at the next all grain-day, and you can take it all home with you (less a small donation to the CDBC). It’s your chance to learn to brew!
So we need a volunteer, preferably a beginner. Who’s up for learning to brew?

Saturday, 10/15, 10am. All grain brew, TBA. 
We’ve been making lots of IPAs and CDAs and such. I think it’d be fun to go towards a different style, so let’s make a Brown Porter or some other dark, malty beer. Recipe suggestions?

See you soon!
The Brewmaster

    Would a ginger ale be completely out of the realm of possibility? hehehe

      There’s a little ginger in all our beer. 😉

    Hey guys,

    I could not find an easier way to contact you fellows. I have hops ripe and ready to harvest here in the CD and looking for anyone that might want to try them out.

    They are the Golden hops that I thought were purely ornamental but evidently can be used in a mix for those light pilsner beers.

    I’d be happy to see them go to use and I’d certainly be curious to learn a bit about making beer.

      Hey Knox,
      I sent this along to the Brewmaster and hopefully we can get somebody in touch with you.

      And if you want to swing by one of our brew days, you are more then welcome. That’s partly why we started the Monday Rookie Nights. We can send you the details.
