A guy on a mountain biking forum I goto has invited me to an all grain brew next month. He does 25 gallon batches and has offered to let me take home 5gallons.

My question to him was does he want me to bring anything along, ingredients/hops/grain etc..?? Anything to help offset the cost and to help out.

I don't think he will ask but I want to take something.

What do you guys suggest I take along as gift you might say.. something brew related.



thanks
jake

The obvious answer is beer. What else do you really need? I guess you should probably bring a fermenter too.

I would ask what the recipe is and bring some or all of the hops. Or maybe the yeast.

If he has everything already, then definitely a carboy or bucket to take your 5gallons home.

I would def bring some beer. I had a brew day with a few of my MTB buddies and just asked them to bring a 6 pack of obscure though tastey beer. Everyone gets to try new stuff!! I am working on a recipe for our clubs fat tire festival in november. I gotta have 40 gallons by then, for the 300 or so people that show up. oh yeah a carboy to transport home would be nice too.

Take 12 or more of your beers in order to share and leave some there, it's always good to give beer!

I usually ask people to bring beer. I've got the ingredients covered, he probably does too.
