    Hey guys it looks like it'll be about $10 each to cover food and snacks etc.
    If your not hanging around for tea please let me know so I can change the food budget.
    cheers.

    Ok people I guess we should sort out a recipe for people who want to brew..
    Should we settle on a style or get what we have in our stash and make a beer from that?

    I recon we throw the style guidelines out the window on this one and brew something interesting from the stash. Well that's my vote anyway :lol:

    Hi all,

    I'm pretty sure I'm driving to & from gava's place on Sat so I won't be going too crazy. It's the weather for good lager fermentations at the moment. I wouldn't half mind brewing a dark lager, bock or something. I've got carapils/foam, carafa spec II and munich I as well as some aged pils malt I wouldn't mind using up. Or there's always the whole imperial dopplebock idea, which I've never explored...

    I'll donate any beer I brew to the next club get together (minus some samples of course ;) )

    Hello All,

    I've been on holidays and working around the house so haven't been here for a bit.

    Going to organise the meat for tea today currently looking at a few pork shoulders and some chicken wings we may slap on the smoker (if i can get it working better today) also got snacks for during the day...This should work out to be about $10 a person (Try not to bring any food and if you do please let me look at the package since our son is highly allergic to rice)

    My brewrig is out of action the brew troller has an issue when some SSR are connected , I've got a new box so I can rewire and seperate the 240v and 12v (this wont be done by tomorrow) We do have a single batch BIAB coming and also a breumeister (or whatever they're called)

    So we will be kicking off at 12:30 the day should be a easy going meet and great I guess maybe talk about how we want to take this club in the future. I have a brown ale on tap (travs mongoose recipe from the forumn recipe tab)

    I have three spare taps (two if you let me leave the soda water on) :) and also a jocky box we can connect up.

    Please come along with your manners any idiots will be asked to leave and have a good day.. Any one that wants a work out can dig my wife some holes for her fruit tree's!

    cheers and can't wait to meet (see) everyone Saturday..

    Big thanks to Gav for organizing such a great day :beerbang:
    It was definitely a roaring success and from the turn out, it showed that the home brew scene in and around Bendigo is going strong. Nice to see and meet so many new brewers getting into the hobby and pulling out some great beers, and I also really enjoyed catching up with others that I haven't seen for a while. You couldn't beat it the beer and food was sensational, and the conversations enthralling. I had a ball, so thanks everyone and cheers.
    :beer:

    Hi all
    Thank you for not trashing my house :) it was a great day good beers and good food although I missed about 98% of the pork (shake fist) not to worry plenty more were that came from..

    It was great meeting new and old people and I didn't know there was that many people in and around benders willing to come out for a beer day.. Thanks a lot to Rolf and jay for helping on the food and the ugly drum smoker...

    Thanks to Wayne and cam for putting a brew on I would have also but I seem to have a bug in my brewtroller next time it'll be running...

    So I was thinking that while it's fresh and we seem to like each other we should think of hat we can do next? And how often? We could always catch up monthly/or every other month.. We can also have inner club mini comps ie brew this type of beer or even have a craziest beer off (my money is on cam)

    So thanks everyone for making it a great day and let's hope there's more to come..

    Gav
