CDBC Newsletter: May

25 Apr

Hello all,

April has come and almost gone, and we’ve gotten plenty of brewing done.

Beer Updates:

The Zythos IPA, Tragically Hopped Amber and one of our Ciders have all been bottled.

The Oak Aged Yeti Clone (4.3) is aging, bourbon soaked oak cubes have been added to the keg.

The Orange Zest IPA (4.15) is finishing primary fermentation and should be ready to bottle soon. We brewed this with Citra Hops and orange zest at flameout

The Belgian Golden (4.21) is in the middle of a strong fermentation. This is a classic Belgian Golden recipe, half of which will be used in our wine-barrel aging project.

Brewery Updates:

The yard is done! We’ve already had an inaugural brew on the new patio, and we’re looking forward to having a great summer of beer and cornhole on the new lawn. Pics are attached.

Our next Brew Meeting/Beer Tasting will be held on Wednesday, 5/16, at 7:30pm.

If you have a suggestion for either a theme or a field trip to a brewpub or bottle shop, speak up!

Brew Calendar:

5/5/12: Big Brew Day! (Brewery Closed for Double Header Day; brew on your own!)

5/19/12: Brew Day (volunteers? we probably should do NHC beer!)

6/2/12: Brew Day (volunteer?)
