Club Meeting — Tuesday, April 4

We will be meeting Tuesday, April 4 from 7:00-9:00 at Northern Brewer- St. Paul.

This month the focus will be on base malt.  Yes, base malt:  that stuff often described only as 2-row that composes most of your grain bill yet rarely gets more than a passing thought when cobbling together a recipe.  We will (hopefully) shed some light on the differences between popular pale malts, why you should care what you’re using, and how to determine what might work best for your recipe.

Mar 2017 Club Meeting – 7p Mar 7th @ Northern Brewer St. Paul

Ross and Alejandro will be providing an overview of strains offered by Omega Yeast Labs, now carried by NB.

Alejandro will have a couple beers made using yeasts currently available only from OYL.

Take a look at the attached spreadsheet comparing the strains from the OYL, White Labs, and Wyeast catalogs. Though there is likely some variation between manufacturers, in many instances the comparable strains will be pretty similar if you need to make a substitution because your go-to yeast is not available.

1150 Grand Ave, St Paul, MN 55105 from 7-9.

Arrive a few minutes early as the doors will close to the public at 7.

We’ll have some Extract St. Paul Porter put on two different toast levels of French and American Oak to sample. We’ll also have some commercial wood-aged beer and some barrel-aged stuff. You’ll be surprised by all the flavor you can get out of a few little wood cubes! Will discuss a little about what to do and not to do when dealing with barrels. Hope to see you there!
