Hi All,

Anyone keen for a meet up in Feb?
Happy to volunteer hosting duties for this one (I'm in Umina).

I'm thinking either the 21st or 28th depending on everyones availability.
Happy to start earlier in the day also as discussed last meeting to save slamming the last few beers when we
run out of time.

The 14th is pretty much the only day out for me, heading to http://www.meatstock.com.au oh yeah!

Ben

I'd be keen.

21st would be ideal for me as I have baby related stuff on 28th.

Shall we lock in the 21st?

Might mix up the food this time and fire up the smoker, haven't decided what yet probably either pulled pork or brisket.

I think it's my turn to supply meat - Ben - what do you need?

Dubzie, thast OK to bring the spawn along. I have a 2yr old also but I think my wife might do the runner to avoid all the homebrew chin stroking so he may or may not be home.
Rob/Bry don't worry about the meat/food I'll sort it out, it just easier if get it all, Rob can be on sausage duty for the next meet up. I gues someone can bring bread rolls if wanted.

I should have and addtional 2 peeps so looks to be a good sized meeting. I'm looking at a 1pm start and 5pm finish so hopefully we won't have to slam a bunch of beers in the last 30mins.

Let's see what everyone has to bring.

I'll have an APA and American stout and possibly a Mild that are fermenting now. Also rauchbeir, Belgian single, Vienna lager and amber ale (if that keg doesn't kick)

Ok "sausage duty" - what are you saying?? :blink:
Kidding, sausages next time, and I'll do bread-rolls this time.

I should have a Foreign Extra Stout, American Wheat, Vienna Lager, and I have a keg of Westvleteren XII that's slightly under-attenuated but still good. I won't bring the whole keg or the police will get involved.

Just trying to get permission from the missus, she has something organised for us during the day, but i might be able to rock up a bit later.

Unfortunately, i only have a Bavarian Dunkel ready at the moment, i'll be kegging a Zombie Dust Clone this weekend though.

Just reviewing what I said I'd bring - the American Wheat is all gone.

Not sure why, it wasn't that good.

If I print out a bunch of BJCP scoring sheets is anybody interested in having a go at filling them out?
Interesting, good palate exercise and people get more in-depth feedback on their beer.

Thoughts? Or is it too intimidating? :)

I was thinking the same on BJCP scoring
I'm thinking of putting 3 or 4 beers in the ISB comp http://colbatt.wix.com/isbbrewcomp
next month and thought it would be fun to see our scores compared to blind tasting and comp results
Maybe we can score one beer each if everyone is interested?
Dubzie if everyone is coming (6-7) might need a longneck of each.

Vienna and Am stout are out for me. Berliner weisse and Brett pale ale are in though!

Come hungry I have a monster pork shoulder for the smoker.

Things have worked out OK for me to join you on Sunday. I hope the pork shoulder can stretch out enough to feed one more...

If not I could bring a plate of peanut butter sandwiches to share. I grow the peanuts in my backyard and roast them in a specially designed wood-fired oven before grinding them to a paste in my home-made mill. It has a flavour I can best describe as "nutty" and it's a good pairing with a Northern English Brown Ale or Brown Porter. To be a complete tosser I documented it all on my AHB blog.
:unsure: :p

Cheers
Dick
