Greetings Yeastside Brewers,
Next Saturday, November 8th, we will have our monthly meeting at Louie and Gayle’s house in Montebello. Technically the first Saturday of the Month is the 1st, but with Halloween the night before, we decided to move the meeting to the following week. Your liver with thank you for the change! We have a few great things planned to wrap up the year, starting with a Big Brew at next weeks meeting.
Louie, our forthcoming president and master brewer, has offered up his brewing system to demonstrate an all grain brew. If you have not seen his system, it is a quite a thing to see! He is capable of brewing 40 gallons and for this brew, he is offering up wort for participants to take! This is a great opportunity to learn all grain brewing, learn some new things and see a large scale brew, and get together with an awesome group for a club brew.
Here is what you need to do if you want to participate. SPACE IS LIMITED SO RESPOND ASAP!!! RSVP with Louie and let him know you would like to participate. Depending on the response, you could get 5 – 10 gallons of sweet wort. Louie plans to start the Brew day at 10a and you should be available to watch and help out. The planned style is a Pale Ale. After you receive your wort, you are responsible to ferment and make it your own. Hopefully everyone would be interested in trying all the different people’s take on the same wort and we can taste it together as a club. Maybe at the December Meeting? We will see!!
Things to bring to Saturday’s Meeting:
- Tasting Glass (YSB glasses are for sale)
- Money or Credit Card for shirts, glassware, and merchandise
- Food! Louie will have a BBQ available for grilling and good shareable food is more than welcome!!
I just want to thank Jerl for planning and organizing our Cider Pressing last weekend. I hope everyone had a great time and I look forward to tasting some great ciders in the coming months.
We have quite an adventure planned for our December meeting! As a thank you for being a member this year, we are having a Orange County Brewery Bus Trip!! The trip will be free for current Yeastside Members and will end the year with a bang! All the details are still getting worked out and I will send an email next week with more info and RSVP details. Stay tuned and I am excited to celebrate the great year we have had!
California Homebrew Festival is back!!!!!!
Exciting news! The Southern California Homebrew Festival is back in business!! As you may know, this years event was cancelled due to language in a Bill that excluded serving homebrew at a non profit event that supports homebrew. Everyone in the state has given time, written letters, and have succeeded in restoring these homebrew festivals. Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. Next years event will be at Vail Lake. It goes without saying that the Yeastside Brewers will be in full force for the event! Dates and ticket info will be announced in the coming months so stay tuned.
