Big Brew Day 2013
« on: April 19, 2013, 10:35:23 AM »
This will be the first year that I (and my local LHBS) are participating in the AHA Big Brew Day. The AHA home page currently has a splash story on the More Fun Blonde Ale being 'one of the recipes for this year's BBD', are there other recipes coming as well? I had heard that BBD is focused around a single recipe rather than multiple ones.
I'm only here for the beer....

There are actually 3 recipes:

I'm hosting like I have for years, but it's gonna be a pretty small event.  The biggest brewfest around always gets scheduled for the same day and a lot of people do that instead.

Our LHBS hosts a big event every year: group brew, homebrew garage sale, seminars and classes, food trucks, pints by the neighboring nanobrewery, etc.

Lucky dogs. How cool would that be?  A day of brewing with Denny!  Jealous

I went out out there one year. We seemed to drive and drive forever. Finally we arrived at this quaint little ranch with a nice brewshed where I saw the coolest garden gnome I'd ever laid eyes on......then it moved and I realized it was Denny.
