General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brew club off flavors discussion
« on: July 21, 2010, 06:20:12 PM »
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, 02:38:17 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 http://www.bjcp.org/study.php#drbeer ), 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, 04:44:00 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!
