April meeting – 4/10 – UK beers and off flavors

The GCBA April meeting is Tuesday, April 10, at Sactown Union.

Style for the evening is UK beers – I hope some you have porter from the last brew day to share!

We’ll also do some sensory training on off-flavors using doctored beers. By experiencing off flavors, you’ll be better able to describe, evaluate and diagnose defects in beers.

We’ll get started at 7. Sactown Union Brewery is at 1210 66th St, Unit B.

February Meeting

The GCBA February meeting is Tuesday, 2/13 at Sactown Union.

Style for the evening is ciders, meads, and perrys.

We’ll also take a look at some software available for brewing, including Beersmith, water spreadsheets, and online calculators. I’ve reserved the tables and projector at Sactown so we’ll do a live demo as we build a recipe for the brew day on March 4 (which we’ll discuss more there).

There are also some handy tools for mead making we’ll look at.

We’ll get started at 7. Sactown Union Brewery is at 1210 66th St, Unit B.

January 2018 Meeting

Our January meeting is this Tuesday, January 9.
We’ll hold elections, take a look the upcoming year, sample some Strong Ales, Old Ales, and Barleywines, and 2018 membership forms ready to go.
See you there!
Meetings are at 7 p.m. at Sactown Union Brewery, 1210 66th St, Unit B.
