It's nearly time for another homebrew day! Inspired by Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day and the desire to hang out with other beer nerds while enjoying good beer, KC Hop Head and I started getting people together back in June. Our two prior homebrew days have been successful, resulting in at least 5 batches of beer and a bunch of new friends.
If you're interested in joining us next Saturday, leave a comment or send me an email and I'll give you the details (click on my Profile there on the lower right, then click on "Email" in the Contact box). We usually start setting up around 12 noon and brewing begins around 1pm. There's been a good mix of extract and all-grain brews. This time around, I'm making a dry show mead and a braggot per Ken Schramm's recipes. More on those later.
The crowd's usually a good mix of homebrewers, beer enthusiasts, friends, people interested in learning more about beer and brewing, and pets. No one's too much a beer novice to come to brew day. After all, the whole point is to learn more about beer. Even those of us who know quite a bit about the brew always learn something by hanging out with other brewers & beer nerds. And there's always good homebrew & commercial beer to drink. Surely, that's reason enough to go.
