Got a phone call from one of your members a couple weeks back and am keen to get to a meeting. Dates are pretty free for me in May at the moment. Except maybe 27th which is GABs, held at homebush this year, unsure if I'll go as yet. Keen to bounce some ideas and knowledge from you guys. I have been all graining for about 3 years and plan to brew a Belgian golden ale tomorrow, currently conditioning a wood aged stout, and have a pale ale on tap. Always looking at ways to improve. I live in Niagara park and keen to join a brewclub on the coast. Any chance of adding water(ph, etc) as an agenda item down the track? Something which I have little experience except a council report, ph meter and a reading from the pool shop. Little idea what to do with it all. Haven't been on any forum for years so I'll probably be a little slack with replies, I don't do Facebook, etc ..... Looking forward to my first meeting on the coast if okay with the host. Cheers. Michael.
Welcome, and I hope to meet up with you at the next meet, we havent refused anyone yet..... It sounds like you have a couple of interesting beers I wouldnt mind tasting, so I think we will have to let you in.
Its fine if you're not on here as much as others, the main thing is that you are up on current events. We do most of our discussion on this forum, but I also send out a monthly newsletter to keep all in the loop, it would be a good idea to sign up:
Have a browse around the website too, tho it is a little sparse in some respects. To see what you will be getting in your inbox, you can have a look through the old newsletters here:
Water is a subject that gets brought up pretty regularly, and we have members doing nothing, filtering, all the way to salt additions and PH monitoring. It is also something I am starting to look into (I am currently filtering).
Anyway, have a look around, there is plenty of information on this forum... some of it is even correct, and don't hesitate to ask any of us, or the general forum if you have any questions.
