Any HBT folk want to join me for Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day? (http://www.beertown.org/events/teach/index.html) Bring your equipment and show a PM Extract brew process or an All grain? I think it would be great to have a few brews going that day for folks. It will be outside under some 10x10 pop up canopies in Austin Hill Country.

I'll be brewing 10 gallons of an All Grain Haus Pale Ale. Crushing of the grain starts at 9 AM with instruction on the whole process to pitching the yeast. We will use a simple batch sparging method and discuss the differing types of equipment needed and where they can be purchased. Tips on keg reconditioning, sanitizing & filling will be done in the afternoon with a workshop on filling bottles with a simple home made counter pressure bottle filler.

Slow smoked Pulled Pork sandwiches will be served in the afternoon.

Please send an email to [email protected] with your name, phone number and number of people you are bringing so I can get a head count and send you travel directions.

That's the whole idea. I just put it out there if someone might want to do a mini mash for demonstration purposes as I will be focused on All Grain.

Bump. I think I may do an extract brew too, following BYO's 10 great tips in this month's issue. Any suggestions for an extract brew with steeping grains?

Hi, You might try Austin Homebrew Supply's Bavarian Hefeweizen this is my first brew that I started on 10/13 and does require steeping grain. I will definatly try to make it out to the "Teach a friend day", it would be great to meet some local homebrewers. Hope to see you there

Bummer dude! So far we have about 15 folks coming. Looks to be a real neat day with folks learning about All grain brewing.

I'm looking forward to it.
