I forgot to mention this at the meeting, but Country Wines has stacks of used 2 and 5 gallon buckets in the back that are free for the taking. Some were used for grain storage, some had Easy Clean or B-Brite in them, and some are honey buckets. Just come in and ask! ... See MoreSee Less

Homebrew and Pourers Wanted!

I talked about this with a few of you at the last meeting and at the demo, but I wanted to reach out to the club at large about an opportunity for members to pour their beers at a fundraising event this summer. Correy and I are both very involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters and sit on the Washington County Advisory Board. We are planning our first big summer fundraiser, a BBQ competition, "Big BBQ Boss," on Saturday, June 10 at the Community Pavilion in downtown Washington, PA.

The event will feature local BBQ-ers that will be judged by official judges and attendees, as well as entertainment and additional vendors. We are hoping to have a few TRUB members wiling to donate their beer and pour at the event. The event goes from noon until 4pm.

Proceeds from the event will support BBBS in Washington and Greene Counties.

Anyone interested in participating can contact me directly on here or at [email protected] We'll eventually put together an event page for more information and communication.

Thanks! Cheers!

Question: do you calibrate your thermometer for 212F, or for the actual elevation where you live? For example, a topo map shows I live at an elevation of 1273 ft, thus water boils at about 210F. ... See MoreSee Less

Rice hulls 2.2%
Pale malt (2row) 52.5%
Red wheat malt 35%
Flaked oats 4.4%
Flaked wheat 4.4%

4 oz Galaxy hops whirlpool 165 deg. (Again, this was for 10 gallons. )
