Learn To Brew Recipe

For the Learn To Brew day this year we decided to use a single style of beer.  We are going to make an Irish red ale.
 
Irish red ale is a blanced beer with moderate malt character that often comes across as toasted and subtle caramel notes.  The deep reddish copper color comes from a small dose of highly kilned malt that also adds to the dry finish.
 
The recipe that we have selected is the Ruabeoir from Brewing Classic Styles by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer.
 

February 2012 Meeting

This month's meeting will be held on February 7th at 7:00pm at The Beehive Grill (http://www.thebeehivegrill.com). Everyone is welcomed to attend.

O-Town Hop Heads Meeting - 2012/01/12

I would like to thank my brewing brothers and sister from the O-Town Hops Heads (http://o-townhopheads.tripod.com) for welcoming me to their club meeting.  I really enjoyed the evening.

This month's meeting was hosted by Union Station Fermentation located on Historic 25th Street in downtown Ogden Utah. Things started about 6:30 pm with people starting to filter into the shop. It was fun to see the number of people that came in with a bottle or two to share and get feedback on.

Beehive Brew-Off Entries

 Entries for the Beehive Brew-Off were drppped off today at The Beer Nut. I sent in two meads, Karen sent in a beer and Andy sent in three beers. Not a huge club entry landslide, but it is our first showing at the competition. It is just another reminder that people in Cache Valley like home brew.
On Sunday, August 22nd there will be an awards presentation at The Bayou starting at 5:00pm. Jamie over at The Beer Nut invited any CBS member to come on down if we could, but she said that score sheets would be mailed if we are unable to attend.

2011 Beehive Brew-Off

The time is approaching for the 3rd Annual Beehive Brew-Off. It is a BJCP brewing competition for the State of Utah and the surrounding areas. Entries are $5.00 each consisting of three 12 oz bottles. Entries for this year's competition will be accepted at The Beer Nut in Salt Lake City begining August 1st through August 15th.
