April Meeting Agenda
We will be taking a closer look at an ingredient loved in some styles and loathed in others:  crystal malt.  What is it?  How is it different from base malt?  What can it contribute to a beer?  How can you use it?  We will be evaluating several US and UK crystal malts covering a broad range of the Lovibond scale to see (and taste) how they compare to one another.

Additionally, there will an off flavor session, something we will be rolling out with more frequency at meetings.  This month: pfenolic/plasticy-y
