Bean's Big Brew 2009
Posted April 01, 2009 at 06:00:31 PM by Bean in the Beer category
Here's something!

Goal:
Brew 30 gallons of delicious beer on Saturday, April 11, 2009, in my basement.

Plan:
We will be brewing all day... that is to say, from about 10am to about 10pm. We will also be drinking all day... that is to say from about 10am to 10pm. Lunch and dinner will be the traditional IBADS fare - Domino's. I'll provide homebrew and Miller Lite on tap until it's gone... then we can improvise.

Lineup (recipes pending):
Amber - for Geoff and Jessica's upcoming wedding
St. Chuck's or OHP - for in house replenishment
Saison - to use up some of the fancy Belgian yeasts I acquired.

Difficulty:
I can't do it alone. I will need other brewers... people interested in helping, watching, or learning... and people to drink with me while I wait out the mash. I've talked to many of you who have expressed interest in brewing beer, so this is for you. Everyone is invited - just let me know you are coming beforehand. Come on down, stay a while. We've got spare bedrooms.

Miller Lite? That's pretty shameful for a homebrewer.

In case you weren't aware, that's Easter weekend, so that may affect people's availability.

Would either of you be IN on another weekend?
dirt! (April 02, 2009 at 08:39:17 AM):
intrigued, but doubtful due to just getting back from TN on frij and then various easter activites on sunj
bigD (April 02, 2009 at 10:35:04 AM):
probably not, what with DA's wedding, BABAI, and squatch's wedding coming up in the next 2.5 months. that'll keep me pretty busy.

Unless the other weekend is in july, then maybe.
TP (April 02, 2009 at 10:43:26 AM):
I might be IN, but we'll see once it gets closer. I need to open the pool soon. Plus, drinking all day saturday kills sunday asswheelbartow.
