Its funny that this thread got bumped... last night at our homebrew meeting, (we live about 30 minutes from Boonville, home of AVB) one of the members mentioned he had won a fundraiser auction on a "brew day" at AVB. He gets to use their 20 gallon pilot system, and have free run of the place including unlimited access to their grain barn, and access to any of their recipes. Were all going to go down their as a club. This is gonna be sweet.

I'm jealous. I was just there in Sept. but certainly didn't get to do any of that. This is by far, my favorite amber ale. Hopefully it comes out even remotely close to Boont Amber.

Hang on there cowboy! As I am the one who will be giving the lesson I think you got a few of the particulars wrong. Running is not generally allowed in breweries so maybe "Freeish walk of the place under supervision" might be more appropriate. We will be getting the grain for the one recipe from the grain room, so that will definitely be limited use of grain privileges. And the class is limited to six including yours trully so depending on the size of your club you might need to alter that expectation. Lastly I don't have access to the AVBC recipes so I won't be able to help you out there.

Default brew day at AVBC

one of the members mentioned he had won a fundraiser auction on a "brew day" at AVB. He gets to use their 20 gallon pilot system,

So to fill you in this is my contribution to raise money for KZYX, our local public radio station here in Mendocino county. I am W.Dan and I do a show every Thursday night from 8 to 10 p.m. pst called The Treehouse, it is a comedy show and you can listen in at www.kzyx.org . Every December the station has an on air holiday auction. Every year I offer up four brew sessions, one each night. The winner and four buddies get to brew a beer of their choosing, take an in depth tour of the facilities, play disc golf, taste some beers and such. My brew system is the original pilot brewery for the now defunct Thomas Kemper Brewery which was the first post-prohibition lager micro brewery in the U.S. Kemper was bought by Hart Brewing which eventually morphed into Pyramid Brewing. I brewed for them for five years when their main production was in Seattle in the late 90's.

And now you know "the rest of the story."

Hey a local! I haven't seen anyone local on here yet. Maybe Jack got a little excited when he was describing the situation. Either way, if there's only going to be 6 people allowed that's only about half the club so ill be making sure I'm one of em

Yea I actually didn't know about this sight until my buddies at the AVBC started razzing me about your post. Tell Jack to get in touch with me and we will set up a date and decide what we want to brew. Despite his embellishments it is a good time and you will get to see more of the brewery than on the regular tour.

I sent you a private message. You can only hold 5 as a non-premium, but mine should be in there
