Members are encouraged to brew a beer to style for this meeting, and bring it with for other members to sample and evaluate. The style guidelines can be found at http://www.bjcp.org/docs/2015_Guidelines_Beer.pdf There will be a brief rundown of the style, along with a vote for people’s choice. As an incentive to brew and bring your beer, the winner of this contest will be awarded a prize. If you are looking for suggestions on a recipe there are members of the club with award winning APA recipes. Reach out if you are looking for help.
This meetings theme is timed to coincide with the 2017 Minnesota Mashout competition. This is a great opportunity to hone in your recipe and get feedback regarding your beer. Bring your recipe with to the September meeting for the best feedback. Make sure to include your brewing and fermentation notes.
Looking toward the future we have more style focused meetings planned. Start thinking about Stouts for the January meeting. Check http://sphbc.org/brew-the-style/ for more detailed information.
