    Indoor Brew

    10:00am

    Joe's House

    Saturday, January 21st I will be brewing a batch of American Brown Ale on my simple stove top all-grain system. Mash-in will happen at 10am sharp. You are welcome to arrive anytime after 9:30am. Food will be served around 1pm. Parking will be pretty tight, so please carpool where feasible. Please remember to bring your own glass.
     
    This event will also serve as yet another opportunity for people to taste the results of the Old Ale Barrel Project Brew. There will be plenty on hand. Everyone attending is welcome to sample it and don't be shy. 
     
    If you haven't seen my brewing setup before, here's a pic. It's a 3 vessel, full volume boil, 5 gallon batch system. There are no pumps or ATCs. Just a whole bunch of gravity, love, and attention.

    Yet Another Kitchen Brew

    Noon

    Peed's Wicket Alery
    30 Outer Drive
    Oak Ridge, TN

    Family and Santa Clause helped me get a Zymatic automated brewing system for Christmas. Come to the February meeting and see how it works - it's actually a pretty ingenious design. There's not a lot to see during the actual brewing process, but I have a spare set of some of the components that will make it easier to see what happens and how it happens. I should have beer on tap - maybe not terribly exciting beer, but beer nonetheless. Bring whatever you want to share. Doors will open at 11:00 AM and we'll press the Start button at the crack of noon. More details to follow.

    Submit your lager brews to Daniel and compete head to head for the prize! Everyone is welcome to come and judge. It's not a style competition, it's a "do I like this beer better than that beer" competition.

    Big Ass Brew!

    9:00 AM

    716 East Churchwell Avenue
    Knoxville, TN 37917
    (near the old St. Mary's hospital)

    Mark you calendars for our annual Big Ass Brew on April 22nd!

     
    This year we are heading to Brad's house in North Knoxville to witness the awesomeness of his enormous electric brewhouse. This mega-batch will be split in some fashion for "comparative analysis" at the Pig Roast in June (scheduled for 6/10). For those that made it to Brad's last time, we are planning to chow down on some gumbo that you definitely do not want to miss.
     
    Bring some homebrew and a side dish to share!

    Best Bitter Talk

    1-?

    Jay's House

    Message from Jay Knepper regarding the July 15th meeting at his place: "The pool is open and Mary and I invite significant others and family members to come, hang out, and relax".  See attached; looks inviting.  I'll talk about what I've learned (and failed to learn) about brewing English Ales over the last 15 years or so, using the highly prized Hillesheim method of "just talking about it".  This method is highly prized for its lack of the presenter having to do a PowerPoint presentation.  Jay will be disappointed in me for that, but I'm just not much of a PowerPoint guy - the last PowerPoint I did was for a talk on filtering at the 2005 NHC.  Obviously, I couldn't get out of having a presentation for that.
