Free Extract Brewing Class for OBC Members!

FH Steinbart Co. has generously offered to host a FREE Basic-Brewing Class for Oregon Brew Crew members at noon on Sunday, March 23, 2014.

The class, which is intended for those members that are relatively new to homebrewing, will cover all the steps involved in brewing a batch of home brew from malt extract. You'll learn troves of "tricks and tips" to make your brew day more convenient and make your home brewed beers turn out delicious, just like you intended.

The topics that will be covered in this class include, but are not limited to:
  • Basic equipment;
  • Specialty grains;
  • Malt extract;
  • Boiling;
  • Hop selection;
  • Wort chilling;
  • Sanitation;
  • Fermentation;
  • Bottling and storing; and
  • Serving your beer.
If this list of topics sounds confusing or daunting, don't sweat it! The class is designed to make these introductory topics accessible to the brewing novice. If you are brand new to brewing or have already brewed a few batches and long to perfect your skills, this class is for you. It contains all kinds of useful knowledge for the new-ish brewer to hone his or her skills.

Please note that space for this class is limited and it's on a first come, first served basis. Registration is required in order to attend

If you are interested in signing-up for the basic brewing class or have any additional questions, please email J. Frey with the term "OBC Class" in the subject line. Cheers!

Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.

Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!

Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org

Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
