IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
You don't have to brew to attend. You can just observe and ask questions!
You must provide the ingredients for your brew (other than water) We will have many strains of common yeast available for your use as stated above, but you are welcome to bring your own.
You must provide a carboy/bucket w/airlock to transport your brew home.
All brewers can bring samples of their own homebrew and/or unique commercial brews to share. It's a great opportunity to get some feedback on your homebrews.
Recipes: You may choose to brew your favorite beer style, or you can share in the National Big Brew 2010 theme, select one of the three selected styles from the AHA website.
And it goes without saying but please remember that this is an educational event. Please share your brew, passion, and good humor with those around you.
hope to see you there
