Awards - Closed Transfer - Beers!
Welcome to our new members Andrew and Rachael Parke, and the crew of the new Bullfrog Creek Brewing Co. who are just starting the process of building a new brewery on Lithia Pinecrest in Valrico!
Our award-winning brewers continue their winning streak! George and Mary won both gold and silver awards for their chocolate peanut butter stout and cider respectively. Jay ? was also a winner. Congratulations to them as they encourage more of our club brewers to enter competitions. It really is the best way to find out what you’re doing right!
President Joe demonstrated a closed transfer process. He connected CO2 to a plastic carboy to a carny keg to a homemade spunding valve to show us how oxidation can be minimized.
And what do we love most of all? Beer! We tasted samples from Dean, an IPA; Brian, his rye IPA; and Mary, a Berliner and her award winning Stout!
New to brewing. So much to learn. Grateful to have this club's help!
