On Saturday May 7th, a convergence of Cincinnati area homebrewing clubs, including BBL, CMI and others will be hosted by Rivertown Brewing Co in Lockland for AHA Big Brew Day!
The official recipe is an East Coast IPA, Wit and Porter (get the recipes and more info here ). Rivertown Brewing will be making at least a 7 barrel batch of East Coast IPA on Big Brew Day. Rivertown will provide the finished wort, you provide the yeast and the fermenter. You must be a BBL member and have signed up for a wort share. If this is you, you will need to bring a vessel to take your wort home.
NOTE: The fermenter/vessel MUST NOT BE GLASS as Rivertown does not allow glass inside the brewery, so you’ll need to bring a plastic bucket with lid, Better Bottle or a clean/sanitized keg for transporting your wort share.
Brewers are encouraged to bring their own brewing equipment out for the day and brew in the parking lot. Plenty of room, water provided, etc. Tents are a good idea in case of inclement weather.
As always with this group there’s bound to be plenty of food. A dish to share is appreciated.
In this issue of the newsletter:
Fri, April 15, 7pm – 11pm
Norwood Community Center, 1810 Courtland Avenue, Cincinnati, OH (map)
The brewers (and longtime BBL members) Jason & Randy from Cincinnati’s newest microbrewery Rivertown Brewing Co, located in Lockland, will visit to discuss the scales of brewing from the homebrew level, moving to a production volume and the challenges that come with it. Q&A session after.
The April meeting will also require as many members as possible to attend so that we may hold a vote on the Articles of Incorporation and the Code of Regulations as proposed at the March meeting. This document can be found here: http://bloatarian.com/about/club-documents/
Here is a picture of my “old Frothingslosh” clone.
I was trying to write an article on how I got got some yeast from the space station by an unamed Austronaut/homebrewer but thought a picture might be better. The reason the head is on the bottom is because the yeast mutated in weightlessness by creating CO2 molecules that were bound too tightly together. Because it is a cluster of CO2, it is heavier than the air here on earth. Testing done at a NASA center with a spectrogrph has proved this theory. This new gas is now refered to as Ciborea.
