May 2017 Meeting

Normality is resumed!

The sunshine of May clearly had a positive effect on the Brew Crew and we had a bumper turnout and some amazing beers being showcased.

May’s Beers

  • Ben: Cwtch Kit, Simcoe & Chilli Double IPA
  • Chris: Belgian Brune, Cider Kit
  • Ed: Chocolate Milk Stout
  • Charlie: Banana Leaf & Tree Honey Wheat, “Feminist Paramilitary Death Squad” (a Fresh Tea and Coconut Treacle Beer), Redcurrant Oak Sour
  • Guy: Citra and Roast Barley Bitter

It goes without saying nowadays that Charlie’s incredible selection of ingredients resulted in some amazing beers but this months winner of Brew of the Month was my Simcoe & Chilli Double IPA. This is the beer I brewed for the Recipe Roulette competition back in March and the extra 2 months bottle aging has provided the final polishing touches. The recipe writeup will be on the website soon!

April 2017 Meeting

Once the dust settled…

Following the roaring success of our Recipe Roulette competition in March was always going to be a big ask and April’s meet was a distinctly quieter affair! So much so that I completely forgot about getting the blog write-ups done until now 3 months later… cough cough!

April’s Beers

  • Guy: Dunkel, Columbus Smash
  • Chris: English Bitter, American Brown
  • Ben: Simcoe & Chilli Double IPA

With such a small selection of beers on offer we decided that there wouldn’t be a Beer of the Month award this time around!
