Homebrew Clubs / Homebrew Club Running a Nano-Brewery
« on: March 02, 2013, 04:52:38 PM »
Hi All,

We're a new homebrew club located near Sacramento, California. Our club, along with at least 2 others, were invited to serve our beers at a local beer festival with over 90 commercial breweries attending.  After making plans, and literally with kegs in hand, they told us that the ABC wouldn't allow us to serve--probably something to do with them collecting an entrance fee and linking this fee to the home brewed beer. The beer festival was a charity event.

Anyway, I was wondering if any club out there has started it's own club sponsored nano-brewery and obtained licensing? I believe this would answer any questions that would arise about the club serving at brew fests. Is this a viable idea? Would the club have to drop out of the AHA even though we'd be brewing on a homebrew system?

I realize there would be some complexities involved, but I thought I'd throw it out there for discussion.

General Homebrew Discussion / Standards for Homebrewing Calculations
« on: November 25, 2009, 08:57:47 PM »
Maybe I just don't know where to look, but there doesn't seem to be a single source for standard homebrewing calculations. Sure I find them on the Internet and in books on brewing, but many of them are different and yield close, but not exact results. Is there an AHA or BJCP "sanctioned" or "recognized" set of brewing calculations out there for the homebrewer to use?

I ask because I would like to develop my own spreadsheet application for recipe design and result estimations.  I know there's a ton of software already written, but even the commercial software packages results seem to vary.
