It’s that time again! On March 10, 2017 from 1 to 4 we shall gather in the back room of the Hardin Valley Casual Pint and crown a champion. Everyone is invited to enter and everyone is invited to judge. No skill required! Please send me an email to Daniel if you want to enter and I’ll coordinate with more information.
Registration for this year’s Homebruin Cup is now open! If you are receiving this email, you are eligible to enter. All the details can be found here: http://tvh.brewcomp.com
If you are interested in participating as a judge or steward, head on over to the competition website and get registered. As usual, we will need all the help we can get.
Eight entrants entered and Blackyardigan emerged victorious. Joe’s winning schwarzbier had half of the total cast votes. Much shit talking and flaw finding was engaged in and generally folks had a good time! Next year we need more judges 😀
We brewed 10 gallons of Oatmeal Stout. About 4-6 folks who weren’t in the club came out to check us out. Thanks much to FS for donating all the ingredients. The batch was split and WLP007 and WLP004 yeast were pitched into the different 5 gallon better bottles. Look to sample the beer at the club Christmas Party.
Come join TVH as we brew out in front of FermentStation. We will be starting our 10 gallon all grain demonstration around 10am. There will be staff on hand to help you if you are just getting started or considering brewing for the first time. More advanced brewers are welcome to join us to see the club’s system in action.
The club will be having an education oriented brew out on
September 10th. Well, it was going to be then, its going to move to the following weekend, either Saturday or Sunday, yet to be determined. We’ll be going through the all grain process in detail. So if you haven’t leapt to all grain, or just want to improve your skills. This is the event for you.
Full information on the club calendar.
There will be a club brew out on August 13 at Paul’s house. Full details on the event calendar.
