2017 Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition!

It's that time of year again when we fondly remember our compadre Doug King. Doug was a brewer's brewer - always there to lend a hand to the club or another brewer. He was also fond of experimentation and was well known for his crazy experiments (loafs of rye bread, potatoes, tortillas - all in the mash) and his love of lagers.

He won the 1996 California State Fair for his Dougweiser.

As always, the Doug King Memorial Competition features lagers and specialty categories. The popular category first featured in last year's Doug King Competition, "The British are Coming", will also be on the menu this year!

The complete rules for the Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition can be found at:

The deadline for entry dropoffs is Friday January 13, 2017.

Judging will be on Saturday January 21, 2017 at 9:00 AM

I'd thaw it, give it a stir and then check the pH. As long as it's low, I'd have to think it will work.

From our latest podcast

Pegu Club
1.5 oz Gin
0.75 oz Triple Sec/Curacao/Cointreau
0.25 oz Lime juice
1 dash aromatic bitters (aka Angostura)
1 dash orange bitters

Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. So damn good.

Interstingly there's been an effort for a few years to get a verification api operating for membership benefits for online retailers. Don't know where that ended up

Ok so Cubbies and Cleveland? Theo vs Terry. But I have to admit, as a die hard Red Sox fan, if my boys can't be going for the mix, I want the Cubbies. They're my NL team of losers, just like the Sox were my childhood of AL losing. :)

bevinsights runs a paid email list for daily stories. That's where it ran. I've had multiple confirmations from different sources

I've found that I'm so busy since I retired that I actually have less time to brew than when I was working.

Well, that's what drive, creativity and ambition, plus a partner with at least the ambition part will get you

I would guess it means de-oxygenated water.

It would be a much better world if we created more brewers than lawyers. :)

Belle's in progress. Saisonstein is going to happen when it cools down a bit since I consider that flaw there.

I continue my march towards knowing all the Saison strains I can! What do you think?

I haven't. In fact I've held onto kegs of "session" strength Belgians that I've open fermented for nearly 3 years without noticing oxidation. The key is not to get lazy and get your fermenters closed when primary ends.
