Right Now, (hey) It’s Your Tomorrow!

11 Mar

After a bit of an unintentional hiatus, the CDBC is back in action!

The last few months we’ve all felt something missing in our lives. I’m sure you too have felt an empty pit in your stomach that was yearning to be filled by homebrew and witty banter. Well, fear no more! The CDBC is gearing up for an epic year of homebrew shenanigans.

Now here are a few updates from the CDBC:

  • One of the more exciting recent developments has been the generosity of Chuck’s CD. They are letting us hold are meeting in the shop, every third Wednesday of the month. No more scrambling last minute or invading someone’s home. You can find them on facebook or get their current tap list here. Our next meeting is scheduled for March 19th at 7:30pm.
  • Chuck’s has also asked us to do a demo brew on May 11th during Seattle Beer Week. We are working on the logistics, but plan on brewing a 10 gallon batch of Saison while taking questions and explaining the homebrew process to curious on-lookers. We brewed the recipe this past weekend, so as long as it turns out decent we’ll try to repeat it.
  • Planning for our second annual CDBC Con Carnival is in full force. Those of you at last year’s know it was a good time. And we all like good times.
  • Last but not least, we are working on scheduling some more frequent brew days.

Catch that magic moment, and do it right, right now.

See you at the Brewery!

CDBC Updates — December 2012

1 Dec
It’s been awhile….

I realize it’s been almost six months since we’ve posted…but we’ve been busy! (I know, everyone is busy.) Anyway, here are some updates from the CDBC:

• We are re-committed to the website. You can follow us on Twitter @cdbrewing to get updates now and Facebook is coming soon (welcome to 2007!)

• There is now a recipe section on the site and a “Submit a Recipe” section. We will try to add recipes as we can, we like to share.

• Coming in 2013: Our first annual(?) CDBC Chili Con Carnival. Planning is in process.

• February or March 2013 CDBC Club Meeting will be at a local brewery….with the brewmaster.

• We actually have monthly meetings like a real homebrew club.

• The CDBC is looking to be more involved in local competitions and festivals.

We’ve been brewing. We’ve been drinking. We’ve been dreaming about a conical fermentor.

CDBC looks into the future, all the way to the year 2012

27 Jan

Now that we are getting back on track after the holidays, things at the brewery are going to start heating up again.

Some upcoming items:
  • We are picking up something like 1300 pounds of grain this weekend. That should get us at least a couple brews.
  • We will have a monthly meeting, the third Wednesday of every month at 7:30 to taste beers and welcome people who want to learn more. This is in addition to our brew days.
  • Next Brew Day is tentatively set for this Sunday, January 29th.
  • We hope to put together a schedule of brew days for the next few months.
  • The National Homebrew Conference is in Bellevue this year! June 21–23. (They say Seattle…but really it’s across the lake in Bellevue.) The CDBC plans to be there somehow. Maybe just pouring some beer, maybe some in competition, maybe just there to drink everyone else’s beer.

We had our first meeting of the new year on Thursday, January 26th. We tasted a lot of homebrew. We also set up more of a structure to hopefully get more people into the collective and brewing beer. 2012 looks off to a good start!

See you at the Brewery!
