Big Brew (celebrated one week early)
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:15:18 AM »
300 homebrewers converged this past Saturday at the Rochester Mills Production facility and collectively brewed 122 batchs for a total of 1012 gallon of homebrew. RMBC has been offering an early celebration of National Homebrew Day /Big brew activities so as not to interfer with local clubs and homebrew supply shop efforts slated for the big day. All ingredients were donated, we had a sunny, mid-70's beautiful day, and all was good.

Many thanks to the fine folks at RMBC and the volunteers that made this such a well run event. Participants can enter their creations into a homebrew contest that will be held June 1st, and the winner gets to have their recipe brewed at thei facility.

Looking forward to more Big Brew activities next Saturday. Here is our early toast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViyjvLP_jVg

Very nice!  It's a big job to organize that many homebrewers.
Never heard of Rochester Mills.

That's dedication!  It'll pay off when that barleywine smooths out and matures. Awesome!
