All Grain Brewing / Re: Consistent problems with Diacetyl
« on: July 07, 2010, 11:57:58 AM »
I, too, had a similar issue with some kegged beers getting buttery over time.  I also chalked it up to bacteria in the kegging system.  So, I cleaned the dip tubes, then filled the kegs with boiling water left for about an hour (make sure to release the air out of the dip tube so that water gets inside).  Then an iodophor bath for another hour.

Symptons gone.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Augusta, GA?

Sorry to say but as far as I'm aware you will be in beer wasteland ;)

I'm not aware of anything formal as far as a club and don't know of any BJCP judges in the area either, though you are more than welcome to come down to Savannah to a SBL meeting 1st Wednesday of the month at Moon River.  Columbia might even be closer to a Palmetto Brewers meeting.

My few times in town, I really only know of one good bar with a good beer selection - don't recall the name but it's downtown next to Nacho Mama's with about 15 taps and a number of bottles as well.  Of course, I've only been up for short stays.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Location ideas for homebrew club meetings

Yeah, good point.  I was thinking more from the standpoint that I doubt the law would bother to hassle individuals however the bar could be a different story.

We "almost" caused this ourselves with our local Brew Pub. 

Our laws in GA don't allow beer brought into brew pubs.  We had always brought it in anyway, thumbing our noses at "the Man", but the Man actually started paying attention - to the point they had planned a "raid" during our homebrew competition, which we hurriedly moved to another location.  Our meetings were, I'll have to say, getting out of hand with 50+ people coming and probably 20-25 homebrews to sample, all out in the open.

Since the brewpub was looking at expansion - and was warned by the DOR to "cease and desist allowing contraband beer into his establishment" - he asked us to stop bringing in homebrew.  We sure didn't want him to get into trouble because of us so we've gone to a business meeting at the brewpub with a separate Beer Swap meeting at indivudual's houses.

Posted this on homebrew comps, but thought I would copy over here as well.  It's not too late to enter!!  Entry window has been extended to Feb 1.

The 12th Annual Domras Cup Mead Competition, sponsored by the Savannah Brewers League, will take place February 6, 2010, beginning at 9 a.m. All mead styles (24,25,26) will be accepted. The on-line entry window will be open January 10 - 27. All entries are due by the 27th. Entry price is only $5 and only one bottle of still mead (2 of sparkling) are required for entry.

We're only second oldest, not nearly as prestigious, but possibly the funnest mead-only competition in the land. As always, we will hold our annual oyster roast afterward in celebration of a great mead day!

Please go to www.savannahbrewers.com for more information.
