Default SNIZZLE Taste Testing??

The beers we made at our last SNIZZLE get-together should be just about ready to go. We discussed getting together for a tasting (and perhaps some more brewing). How do schedules look for the next few weekends?

I can't send IM's to groups anymore, so this will have to do.

Funny, Cheese and I were PM'ing yesterday and I mentioned this.

Next weekend (5/4-5), the assistant brewer and I will be visiting her hometown of Charleston, SC. The weekend after that, she goes in for her long awaited surgery and I'll be playing nurse. And before Cheese asks, no, I won't be wearing a uniform.

Possibly the weekend of the 5/18-19th or 5/25-26th?

BTW, looks like the Gordon Biersch in Bolingbrook opens this weekend!

Not enough beer - or hard alcohol - in the world to wash away that filthy, filthy image of Rhoob in a stripper-nurse outfit, sliding down a pole. (When I think of nurses, I typically think of strippers.)

I think I'm free both of those weekends, assuming that neither of them are Mother's Day.

BTW, best wishes to Assistant Brewer in her surgery.

More excited than you???

By the way, I'm willing to host. If it's a nice night, we can do a outside thing on the patio and have a fire.

Hey, I can sweeten the deal up a bit (for a group brew).

I have the following yeast cultures available if anyone wants to group brew:

1. American Ale - 1056
2. Weihen. Hefe - 3068
3. German Ale - 1007
4. "Muntingham" (A mix of nottingham and muntons dry yeasts that I used for my cream ale)

I'm making a hefe within the next two weeks and I'll probably do either a honey hefe or another cream ale when I group brew with you guys.

I think I can make the weekend of 19/20. I've got the first two weekends in May all tied up. Is the 26/27 Memorial Day weekend? I may be able to do one of those days.

I can't do 5/19-20. I just found out over the weekend that my buddy is having a big birthday event I have to be at on the 19th and I have a banquet to attend on the 20th. My only options for May is Mammorial Day weekend.
