NOVEMBER CLUB ANNIVERSARY BREW AND CHILI COOKOFF
Next month’s club meeting is going to be held on a SATURDAY at Ian’s place. We will be doing our annual Chili Cookoff and a club brew. Next February is our 20th anniversary and we would like to have a beer brewed by the club ready to drink at the February club meeting. We will have a brew system setup in Ian’s backyard while we brew our 20th Anniversary Beer – a Belgian Dubbel. The board decided on the style (to coincide with our Belgian Beer Competition in March), but we want club members to collaboratively come up with a recipe for this brew! The plan is as follows:
- We will post a recipe form for download on the PG website sometime in the next week. Please submit recipes using this form.
- Submit your recipe via email to president [at] pacificgravity.com before 10/23/2014
- Once all recipes have been received we will post them with a poll that will be active for a few weeks.
- The winning recipe must fit within the Belgian Dubbel style guidelines.
- All members who are current on their membership dues are eligible to submit recipes.
- This beer will be brewed on 11/22/2014 @ Ian’s house during our club meeting / chili cook off event.
BELGIAN BEER COMPETITION – ORGANIZING COMMITTEE VOLUNTEER POSITIONS
