June Bloat Meeting

June 15, 2014 Comments off

Bloats,

The June Bloat Meeting is this Friday, 6/20!

This month’s meeting is the Pear Juice Concentrate competition!

Everyone who took pear juice concentrate is required to enter your concoctions! There is NO CHARGE for this.

What we need you to do:
Please email Roxanne (roxannewestendorf@gmail.com) with your entry information. Include the base style plus any other pertinent information about your entries (for perries, include strength, sweetness and carbonation levels). Some folks have made perries, various beers, at least 1 jelly and maybe some meads.

Bring at least 2 bottles for judging (and more to share if you can) to the meeting. If you can’t be there personally, please arrange to have someone else bring your samples.

Judging: We will need help judging these brews – particularly since many of the entrants won’t be able to judge. We will have new cider/perry style guidelines, and we will go through these briefly before judging.

There will be strange & unusual awards given out for this strange & unusual competition!

See everyone this Friday!
