Once again, huge thanks go to Neal and the New England Emporium staff for accommodating and contributing to our group. The meeting kicked off with the Maibock tasting including homebrewed Maibock’s from Chris, Brian and Dave, Bill and Ryan, and Wayne as well as several commercial examples including a Hellerbock, BBC Maibock lager and Two Roads Maibock
It was another great turnout with about 16 malters and another new face joined us in sharing homebrews including a Kolsch, Pale Ale, Berlinerweisse, Ginger wheat ale, Pineapple wheat ale, Smoked Bacon red ale and a Chocolate Milk Stout. This is the 3rd month in a row a female was in attendance, of course, they have been a member’s girlfriend and some do in fact brew. It’s awesome that they put up with us, although, not one has ever returned...yet!
The first session of the off-flavor workshop at Firefly Hollow took place on June 11th and was quite an interesting learning experience. Thanks to Dana for sharing his knowledge and expertise for each of the 8 flavors we sampled and hosting us.
June’s meeting is scheduled for Friday the 27th in Cheshire, watch for the email invite soon. June’s style: Pale Ale (Yeast experiment). This should be interesting as we should have about 9 different yeasts represented in our club experiment!
