Well, you did dob yourself in mate!
So here is the details for the next one (so far):
DATE: 20th October
TIME: tba
LOCATION: Somewhere in Enfield.


The rest I leave to Beastie to fill in.
Ill be there, hopefully with a better version of my ESB, or possibly a Belgian pale or blonde. Been busy brewing up a storm recently, got a bit of a selection to choose from (although one was a RIS put away for at least 12 months).

Just realized how close this is :eek:

I will be there Beastie. I will brew something for one Handpump so will have one spare if anyone wants to use it.
I'll bring a keg of American Amber as well. Hate to dehydrate.

Just realised that too. Thought I had better have some input here.

Alll welcome to stay/camp. Not sure how much dry area there will be for caravans if require but we should be able to work something out.

We are not overly stocked with outside chairs so if you can bring your own that would be a good help.

Not sure what beer I will have, I had one of those **** it moments and changed the recipe on the spur of the moment.

As seems to be the convention, I will email the address closes to the date,

Kick off about 6 pm.

:lol:

I'm going to try my damndest to get there. I probably won't have done much in the way of brewing between now and then, but I have a couple of kolschs and a Belgian Pale that are verging on drinkable and should be closer to the mark by the time the event actualises.

Seems to me I get everything right and then **** up the carbonation, or the carbonation is spot on in an otherwise average beer. Ah well.

The riggwelter-styled ale continues to improve, but I doubt there will be any left of that in another few weeks...it is too easy to drink.

Happy to give you a lift mate.
I'll have a choice of a Belgian blonde, apa or American brown. Will see what I have by then.

Should be all good for your meet up Beastie - i will have a saison, perhaps some remainder of a DrS golden with rye and maybe repeat of a (also DrS) landlord clone that i brought to the last meet up a bit early but turned out to be a good drop (might be a bit green this time around too).

Looking forward to it!

I won't be crashing, then again I have no idea of how I will get out there and back. I can't get a pick-up for obvious reasons. Depending on time, I may be able to get dropped off. Dunno really, need to ask the boss. To be honest, have been pretty busy house hunting.

Haven't brewed a lot of late, but my harvest aussie ale has turned out a bloody ripper. 300g of dry POR harvested in march, that's it. It's bloody clear too. Can't believe my luck really. Maybe there will still be some on the 20th :p.

Sorry guys.

I have a long ago scheduled fishing trip starting from the 18th of October. Won't be able to get to beastie's bash. :(
Will be at tamboon inlet slaying the bream and flathead!

Might have some beer for you to try though. Will see what I can rustle up and deliver.

Hey lectar, I still owe you a couple of bottles of the British summer ale thing that I brewed up. Will be in touch

Will be sleeping in the swag, so happy to offer a lift there/back if it's needed. Just won't be driving that night.

You really should do the decent thing and cancel Herbo, Fishing trip, what you thinking about. Ha :D

Who ever is coming could you please email me or let me know and I will email my address next week.

Clive.

Ys I'm tentatively holding on to your offer of a lift there...I will let you know over the weekend...I'm sure we could pick up Mesa on the way.

I won't be crashing, then again I have no idea of how I will get out there and back.
If I can arrange a lift back then I'm pretty sure we can drop you off also... but it will be a little bit out of our way so it will mean beer as payment.

Heard on the radio today that the Beaufort show has a home brew competition on Nov. 18.
Wont be BJCP of course, but still be a bit of fun. Don't know about categories/prizes etc.

Apologies for off topic Beastie

I think I will end up driving myself or leaving my motorbike there and graciously accepting a lift back into town with Lecterfan.

Either way, I'll hope to be out there after 7pm with a RAFFLE in tow.

Thanks Beastie - great tucker and hospitality (I almost licked the plate after eating all that lamb).

Thanks Wakka for getting me there and Mesa99 for getting me back.

Thanks to Billygoat for helping me win a raffle by forming a syndicate hahaha.

Now, I need to buy a kilo of first gold asap....I'd forgotten how much I love that hop!!!

Thanks Beastie. Great to see everyone, only sorry I had to leave early.

I'll go 100g of that if there is room in a split.

Cheers Beastie, had a great time. Those lamb rolls were awesome.

Nice to win the raffle again, and no, I'm not sharing ;)


Some ideas floated around for the next few meet-ups include:

A sunday sesh and Lecterfans,

A pizza night at my place (give the soon-to-be installed pizza oven a work out). I'd also make this one a BAR swap.

A fishing trip down Apollo Bay

A trip to Berwick to trash visit Pommie Granites place

And of course the Beer festival in January, which I'm still waiting on more details about.

Lots to think about and fantastic our little 'club' is ticking along nicely....
