Homebrew Clubs / Re: Central MA Clubs?
« on: July 24, 2014, 06:00:45 AM »
We will continue with our efforts to get a Homebrew Club started in the Sturbridge area.  Our next "meet up" will take place at Rapscallion's Tap Room on Thursday, August 21st at 7pm.

Hopefully we will be able to get a club started this fall.  In the meantime, these meet ups are a great opportunity to come in and meet the guys who are trying to get this started (not to mention a great excuse to have a couple of pints!)

Off to a good start.  We gathered about a dozen names and email addresses at the July meet up and will be scheduling a meet up at Rapscallion for late August for anyone else who is interested.  We will post the date and time here.

If you are in the Northeast, the Woodstock Inn and Brewery in Lincoln, NH has a Brewer's Weekend package.  If you are not in the Northeast, check some of the local small breweries and see if they offer something similar.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Taking Newly Bottled Beer on a Plane

I had considered doing this myself the last time I flew out to see an old college buddy. I spoke to someone at the airline (Southwest) and they advised that bringing beer (either carry on or checked) onto a plane is not a problem as long as the beer is in a clearly labelled (aka commercial) bottle.  When I told her that my homebrew was in a plain brown bottle she advised against it. Not wanted to risk losing some of my precious beer (not to mention some of my dignity during the inevitable cavity search) I ended up shipping it instead.

I tend to keg my session beers. That way when I say "just another half a glass" (usually more than once) I can't get myself into too much trouble.

Star San for me.  Used to use iodophor but didn't like the way it stains my equipment (and counter tops).

5 gallon batch?   If your kettle will fit in the sink give it a nice ice bath.  I keep the lid off until the temp gets under 140 degrees. Then I put the lid on, soak a towel in the ice cold water and drape it over the top. I can usually chill down to pitching temp within 45 minutes.
