January Meeting Competition

By |December 9th, 2014|

As has been mentioned in previous meetings, we will be having our first Club Only Homebrew Competition in Jan.  The first competition will be Porters & Stouts.  If you intend to enter one of your brews please plan on having 6-9 12-oz or 3-4 22-oz bottles to cover, hopefully, all there to judge.

Judging will be based on points.  Except for the Comments section, judging will not be looking for strengths/flaws of the beer but rather your impression of the beer based on the category it was to represent.  This is to keep things moving along and yet, not too simplistic.  The categories and possible points are:

  • Aroma (12 pts)
  • Appearance (3 pts)
  • Flavor (20 pts)
  • Mouthfeel (5 pts)
  • Overall Impression (10 pts)
  • TOTAL 50 pts possible
  • Comments […]

Shawn Lord started the night off with a toast, which was followed by a welcoming of new members and guests.  They were, Bill Schwalbach, Lori Kroening, Courtney Cerniglia, Bryce Knickelbein, Bob Ginke, Jesse & Vivienne Steinke, Shane Heling, Chad McKnight, Peter Kasprzak, Steve Mikolajczak, and Alec Kumrow.  Phew!  And 7 of them became members!!

Steve Wissink then gave us an update on the clubs […]
