This is your opportunity to see the brew rigs of fellow PG members in action, including the system that Carl uses to brew his award winning beers.
Date: Saturday, May 26.
Place: Carl’s Place (Address to follow)
Time: Carl will start mashing in around 9:30am
If you secure a spot, it would be helpful if you could drop off your equipment the day before. Arrange a drop off time with Carl (competitions @ pacific gravity . com).
MAKE YOUR OWN JOCKEY-BOX DAY:
This is the event many of you have been waiting for! You, too, can have your own jockey box, perfect for serving your homebrew at family outings, friends’ houses, or in your own backyard.

We will start taking orders for parts (excluding cooler) at the meeting. The parts cost per beer line (stainless steel tube, beer line, clamps, ball lock, tap) range from $47 for a picnic tap system, to $80 for a shank and basic faucet system (forward seal faucets are higher).
SHARE YOUR HOMEBREW:
Please bring some of your home-brew to the meeting.
DUES are DUE.
Dues are $36 per individual, $54 for couples. If you haven’t paid yet, please do it at the meeting.
NEEDED: MEETING PLACE
As you know, Culver City Homebrew Supply, our longtime club meeting place, will cease business by the end of May, 2018. We are looking for a place to hold our monthly club meetings. If you know of a local Westside establishment with a large meeting area where we can share our homebrew, or even if you would like to host meetings in your backyard, please email the board (board @ pacific gravity . com) or talk to one of the board members at Thursday’s meeting.
See you Thursday!
