Thank you for your response.

Homebrew Clubs / Accepting Donations
« on: September 02, 2014, 04:31:42 PM »
I have an interesting situation here I would like to get some feed back on.

I am the President of a homebrew club. We are not a 501c group. But we do several festivals in which the proceeds go to charity. A couple of weeks ago, some of us served our home brew at event where the proceeds go to charity. I got the following email from the organizer:

"...In addition to a thank you  we would like to send a donation to your group to show our appreciation for your participation in our event.  We did well and look forward to making a generous donation to our charity partner.  What address should we send something to?"

I am nervous about accepting it because, for me, it gets too close to the line of selling beer. Besides, we do these events to support the charity, not to get a donation. I want them to send "our potion" to the charity also.

Have any of you heard of this going on? If a club were to accept this, are they breaking the law?

Thank you very much for your time in this matter.

Awesome! I think this might be our club's theme song.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: getting the bacon flavor correct
« on: August 18, 2014, 01:02:05 PM »
I have made a bacon Beer before. I called it "Kevin Bacon Porter". Why? because after one drink of this, you'll be saying "thank you sir, may I have another?" The way I made was I first made bacon infused vodka. I would infuse the vodka over a period of about 8 months with real, crisp bacon. Before I put in the secondary, I would boil it to sterilize it and get rid of most of the vodka alcohol. I usually added a couple of cups of it. I was definitely a hit! Why was it a hit? Let's break this down. Bacon great, beer great. Putting the two together, probably one of the greatest moves for the advancement of mankind ever!!!  :)

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Homebrew Club Insurance Program Questions

I would like to thank the AHA and West Insurance Agency for making this available. I would also like to thank Mr. Luke Dobrich for the answers to the questions I had. I think this insurance is a good idea and I know our club will benefit for having it. Thanks again and a job well done!

I had questions also about the insurance program. So I contacted AHA first. I got a response the next day from AHA saying that my questions were insurance specific and I should contact them. So I went to the insurance site provided by the link and used the contact information at the upper right hand corner. That was yesterday. Hopefully, I will hear back soon.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Who has used WLP 585 Saison III ?`
« on: July 23, 2014, 04:58:03 PM »
I love this yeast! Every year I brew my house saison with this yeast with fabulous results that hit style. I highly recommend it. I am waiting for my vial to arrive.

I brewed an Irish Red this spring and bottled conditioned it. I also had low carbonation, at first. But, I let it age another six weeks and the carbonation and flavor turned out quite nice. Sometimes, just a little more time in the bottle does wonders.

He produced some of my favorite albums of Muddy Waters. He was a cool dude. Prayers to his family and friends.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Selecting beers to serve at events...
« on: July 10, 2014, 02:44:24 PM »
Our club is small and informal enough that any beer brought will be served. We set it up where each homebrewer pours his/her own beer. That way, the tasters can directly interact with them. It has worked well so far.
