What about march 16?

I don't know about bringing homebrew to Andy's is cool or not. I don't go there enough to ask, but I do like the idea of a tasting.

National homebrew day is Saturday may 4th. Might be fun to try and schedule a group brew day for then.

I won't be around on the 16th or on the following weekend, but please don't schedule around me if either of those dates work for everyone else. At our last meeting I totally blanked on an upcoming vacation . I can always catch up with one or more of you after the fact.

I pretty sure that a may 4 group brew would be awesome.. Would give me some motivation to get my new system completed!

Sorry I haven't been on here for a few days. The May 4th brew days sounds awesome, I'm in. As far as a tasting, I'm usually around on the weekends and we can use my place as a spot for a tasting if you guys are up for it. Let me know if you guys want to make it March 9th so we can include Blake.

I'm gonna be in charleston the weekend of the 9th for a wedding, but like blake mentioned. Don't plan around me. I will be around after that though. Nothing on the radar for the end of march/beginning of april.

For the group brew day i'd be willing to offer up my place for that. i can fire up the smoker in the morning so we can have ribs or something during the brew. Maybe come up with a group recipe and all brew the same thing (i know the AHA publishes a recipe for that day) and then bring our 5 gallons home, ferment and taste everyones at a later date? Just throwing out ideas.

I like the idea of brewing the same thing and then doing a group tasting! I'm looking forward to that!

I'm around whenever for a tasting, as long as I still have some beer on tap! I hope some others chime in so we can see when they are available too.

On a side note, I have a vial of WLP 830 German Lager Yeast..Best before 4/5/13...if anyone wants this I'll be willing to trade it for homebrew or at least taste some of the brew you make with it. Let me know because I am not going to be using it.

I got sick so I couldn't make the meet last time. Don't plan on being sick next month so I should be able to make it. I'm free most weekends.

I sooooo wish I was set up for lagers.... Listened to a brewing network podcast today about turbo dog tha got me thinking more about german yeasts.

I'd be down for a tasting on the 9th. I have two, maybe three things that are drinking pretty well.

As for a group brew, let's totally do it! What kind of recipe are we thinking?

I am pretty sure that the aha puts out a style and a few recipes for "big brew day". Last year was brown ales. Riffing off that might be an idea as long as the style doesn't suck. I wouldn't mind doing something with a quick turn around to get the pipeline going.

Another option is to pick a style and use/adapt a recipe from brewing classic styles or something like that.

One style I'd like to brew that I've never done before is a Berliner Weiss.

I have a berliner Weiss on my list for this year, but I haven't decided between doing a true sour mash, going with a lacto addition, or adding acidulated malt. If we went with something like that, we could try one or two different techniques to compare..... Even if we do a different style in May, I'd be up for a berliner Weiss experiment any time.

Heya ruhls! Whereabouts in Bergen county are you?
