Dual-tap Cooler Demo by Pete
Self-contained server for two 2 1/2 gal kegs. Includes quick connect for CO2 and wheels. Excellent for tailgate parties and club serving events!
Water-base Comparison Presentation by Brian
Served softened v well water versions of the same beer. Discussed the importance of pH in the mash, especially for pale beers. He shared a well water analysis ($30 by Ward Labs) and a spreadsheet by BrewWater.com. Pool or aquarium test kits could be used too, but with less detail.
Mary & George’s spiced cider (apple juice and Nottingham yeast, added some sugar, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg extracts fermented for 1-month) and their starfruit gose. Joe’s wheat and saison. Dom’s blond and robust porter. Pete’s marzen octoberfest. Lee’s IPA Brewdog-clone recipe, and Wes’s peanut butter cocoa imperial stout.
New to brewing. So much to learn. Grateful to have this club's help!
