Hi All,
Just wondering if any brewers in the Coffs/Clarence area would be interested in forming a club for local brewers?
I've PM'd the Coffs Show society on facebook asking if they'd be willing to put up a sign calling out for members next to the beer section at the show next month
I know the Grafton show is coming up soon too if anyone up that way wants to put up a flyer too?

I'll be calling into Coffs Homebrewing sometime this week to see if Geoff would be happy for me to put a flyer up in there too
Hopefully if we get enough members and enough momentum, we can convince Geoff to start stocking a decent amount of grain too!

If anyone has any questions or suggestions, just leave them here or PM me


Cheers!
Daniel

All the best with forming a group. Don't forget that if you are ever heading down Sydneywards we are only 10 mins off hwy.

finally got round to making the flyer for the coffs show and though i'd post it up here
I've gotten a few interested persons, but hopefully this should drum up some more interest in the general public and get the word out

(note, i've changed the top lines so it's not basically asking the same question twice)

I was just thinking of asking if there was anyone in the Coffs area interested in some kind of brew club, and a quick search brought me here. I live about 20 mins from Bello / 45 from Coffs, at Gleniffer, at the base of the dorrigo national park.

Where do i sign up??

I'm an AG BIAB no-chill kinda guy, order sacks of grain through Geoff, nice guy, but seems to have little knowledge/interest in Ag.

Have you tried speaking to the Bellingen Brewery guy(forgotten his name)? Hes usually pretty keen to talk beer, might be able to sweet talk him into some bulk buys, last i checked he drives up to craftbrewer a couplr times a year with a trailer and gets a few hundred kg's of grain at a time :)

The Bellingen show also does a homebrew section, worth getting in touch with them for promotion.

There will be some flyers at the coffs show this weekend which will hopefully get the name out
here is the final version



It may be a little hard to get Richard to do bulk buys, from what i was told last time i was at Murray's, a brewery has to account for the output of all alcohol created from the grain they have purchased
but he might be able to do it off the clock, who knows
It would be great to get onto him and see if he'd be happy to do some talks about the brewery and bigger scale brewing in a commercial environment

Trying to figure out potential meeting places and The Bayldon Community Centre and The Boambee Community Centre come to mind, they're both a lot less booked out than the ones in town (plus that way i can stumble back home on foot if we get rowdy...)

I'm going to leave membership open to beer, wine, cider and all other fermented beverage/food brewers/chefs/cooks but I'd rather leave the firewater makers out of things as it is a little legally dodgy
If anyone you know would be interested let them know too

I've started a club email at coffsbrewers@gmail.com any questions, suggestions, offers of sexy women are right to go there :)

New to home brew and you're doing a 3V rig?
Sounds awesome!
We're hopefully doing a BIAB demo day very soon, and I'm hoping to do a meet up some time in the near future as well :)
I'll let you all know the date for the BIAB demo in the next few days

Does that involve a lubricant?

The next meeting will either be on the 7th or the 21st of September, depending on what's good with everyone else
I'm thinking for the next meeting, everyone bring along a bottle or 2 of their own, and we'll do a analysis day (and just generally prattle on about beer)
Any other thoughts/suggestions on what people want for the next meeting?
