General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brew club off flavors discussion
« on: July 22, 2010, 01:20:12 AM »
Thanks for the tips guys.  Yeah, we almost just went ahead and spent the $ on the big kit, ..  but, this isn't for judge training or anything, it's just a club meeting/discussion.   So, I may just take the advice and do the main three as suggested.   I'll take a look at the sites posted too. 

You guys rock!  Thanks so much. 

General Homebrew Discussion / Brew club off flavors discussion
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:38:17 AM »
Our club wants to do an off flavors tasting/discussion (more of a cause and effect and solution chat, but with off flavors to taste and discuss).  We planned on using some of the examples from the BJCP study guide (doctoring beers ), rather than buying the pricey kit. 

My question to you all is, has any club already done this?   Is there a top 3 or 5 that I should focus on for my club?   Are all of the ingredients in that list fairly easy to acquire?   Also, is there a good cause/effect site out there that details some of this (I figured the "How to Brew" off flavors might be a good initial resource to use).. 

Any help, tips, suggestions would be appreciated.   Thanks in advance!

Homebrew Clubs / Location ideas for homebrew club meetings
« on: January 25, 2010, 11:44:00 AM »
We have a club up and running, but are struggling to find a location to meet.  We've been meeting at a local bar, that has some great Michigan beer on tap, but everyone really wants to sample homebrew - and in Michigan, we have laws about bringing beer into a bar.    We have had it at a couple members houses, but it's not really a consistent thing.   I want to find a location we could meet at monthly, for tastings, meetings, etc. 

Any ideas for a meeting place?  We kicked around a VFW - but the ones we have all have liquor licenses, and we wouldn't be able to bring beer.   

Anyhow, thanks in advance!
