Local: Come Drink My Beer

 

If you’re in North Carolina, especially the Central part, you should consider putting the evening of February 20th aside and heading over to Chapel Hill.

Why? To drink my beer, of course.

It’s part two of the “World Home Brew Fest“. Nah, I don’t know why it’s worldly, either, but I know that it’s as local as local beer gets. Last time there were roughly 15 homebrewers showing off their beers and this time there promises to be more. I’ll be pouring two beers – one on behalf of the burgeoning Chapel Hill/Carrboro Homebrew Club … which may be called Orange County Homebrewers or something like that now. I’m not sure – regardless! We made a Dry Irish Stout at my house with little incident, and I’ll be pouring that. In addition, I’ll be pouring an Abbey-style Dubbel which is currently being aged with oak, bourbon, and vanilla. That should taste like cookies, and you should come drink it.

So come on down! February 20. Drink my beer and the beer of many talented homebrewers, make a little donation to MS to make the event planners happy, come have a blast, and say hi.

    This works great! I happen to have an endless supply of spent grain. Surf Brewery in Ventura allows me to take a zip lock bag full each time they brew. I have tweak the recipe slightly, I cut the flower down to 3 cups, I use 3/4 cup of grain, I add 1 teaspoon of sugar. I only mix the flour and the grain in one bowl the rest goes in another. My water temp is 85 degrees, I let the yeast, water, sugar and salt sit together for ten min. Then we mix it all up and!!! Perfect loaf every time. I make four loafs a week half for me and half for the grain man! Thanks for the grain Luke!
