If you participated in the Monkish Monster Brew please try to bring some of your finished beer to the August meeting. Henry and his team have been invited so hopefully we can even share our beers with him!
We had the second Iron Brewer Competition this year. The ingredients were Peaches, Rye malt, and Southern Cross or Nelson Sauvin hops. This was one of the closest iron brewers with only 1 vote between 1st and 2nd and 1 vote between 2nd and 3rd. Congratulations to Rich Thorton on his third consecutive win!
Remember the upcoming competitions including the Pacific Brewers Cup in September. If you want to get involved contact Rives or me. Thanks to Chris Sousa-Wynn for volunteering to help with the website. We will be one of the first competitions to adopt the 2015 BJCP style guidelines.
Looking forward to the August meeting we will have a blending session with some monster brew wort. This is based on two or three of the seminars I attended at the NHC. I think it will be a unique opportunity to experience some post fermentation beer adjustments.
