1) We discussed the ides of purchasing a tasting kit from the Sieble Institute to better help everyone understand what “off flavors” are and how to recognize them. Here is the kit from their website. Now the kit is fairly pricey, $290 bucks with shipping, but it provides enough tastings for up to 20 people. We would just need to get a 30 pack or so of yellow fizz water to act as a base. They recommend a liter per vial…
a) Based on the responses from the meeting, I think Kyle is the only one with a boil kettle big enough to handle a 10 gallon batch.
b) Kevin brought up the idea of doing this at the Buddha, I’m assuming Ryan would need to approve this?
c) Martin has offered his place pending approval from the Mrs.. and he has a pump.. which would be awesome for a nice 15 minute vorlauf, depending on the mash tun.
1. Everyone with that link should be able to access it and add their name for a piece of equipment. I just put together a cursory list. so feel free to add any equipment you think I’m missing.
2. We would need to decide on a beer. I put a column on the sheet for the type of beer you’d like to brew. If you don’t see a style you want just add it in the next column. If you see a style you would like, just add your name underneath the beer. That will be your vote. style with the most votes wins.
e) I have a 15 gallon mash tun with stainless steel bulk head and stainless steel braid. I’m happy to bring it unless you guys would like to use something else.
f) The first date discussed was the first Sunday after the next brew meeting, that would be April 6th.
Whats up everyone!
