WONDERING WHY THAT BATCH OF BEER WENT BAD?

HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO DUMP A HOMEBREW BECAUSE IT TASTED LIKE SWILL? 

NO CLUE WHAT WENT WRONG? WELL, HAVE NO FEAR. BRIDGER BREW CREW IS HERE TO HELP!

Join us for a sensory analysis experience of 6 of the most common off-flavors which occur in beer brewing. We will discuss causes and possible solutions to prevent these off flavors from occurring.  

The flavor standards we will be using come from the Siebel Institute, the US's premier brewing school in Chicago, IL. They include the following 6 essential off flavors every brewer should know:

  1. Contamination / Infection
  2. DMS (aka dimethyl sulfide)
  3. Diacetyl (that nasty buttery taste)
  4. Isovaleric acid (think cheesy, old hops, or sweaty socks)
  5. Papery (aka oxidation)
  6. Hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs, ew!)

Location info for the event will be emailed out to members closer time to the event. 

ADMISSION IS FREE FOR DUES-PAYING MEMBERS. $10 FOR NON-MEMBERS.

Iron Brewer Challenge Tasting

27337165_897064393788438_839599117908608822_n.jpg

Join us to taste and judge the beers and other fermented beverages brewed for our Iron Brewer Challenge. This annual brewing challenge requires club members draw ingredients at random at our Annual Holiday Party. Homebrewers must then brew a fermented drink (e.g. beer, mead, kombucha, etc.) which highlights this ingredient while not completely overwhelming the beverage and specific style characteristics. 

This year's tasting will feature approximately 21 different fermented drinks (a majority will likely be beer) brewed with a variety of ingredients including items like horseradish, Thai basil, chamomile, carrots, mushrooms, Jalapeno, and more!

Iron Brewers should bring their beer or other fermented drink paired with a food dish that also features their special ingredient. For those who did not brew for the challenge, you are still welcome! Please bring your choice of food dish and some fermented drinks to share (homebrewed or commercial).

This event is always a lot of fun and a great opportunity to try strange and interesting beers, meads, and kombucha! There will also be some nominal prizes for the top Iron Brewers, including the coveted Iron Brewer Trophy Mash Paddle.

Event will be held at members Keith and Lorene Castleberry's home in Springhill. Directions will be emailed to members via our club email list the week before the event. See you there! Cheers!

All are welcome! So if you brewed for Iron Brewer, but aren't a club member yet, no worries, please still come! Feel free to bring any curious friends as well!

Please RSVP so our hosts know how many guests to expect.

Doppelbock Group Brew Day

  A fine Doppelbock is well worth the wait.

A fine Doppelbock is well worth the wait.

Cheers, Brew Club members!

This is going to be an exciting and informative, as well as, marathon event. We'll be brewing a "Doppelbock" for our February club event using Pilsner malt donated by Bridger Malt House. We'll be starting early with the complex mash process, known as a decoction mash, and continuing through sparge, boil, and finally, pitching yeast. This means it will be a long brew day and all paid club members are encouraged to attend.

Please plan on bringing a snack and beverage to share. It will take approximately 12 hours to complete the process and no one is expected to spend the whole day but are urged to participate in as much as you desire. A proper Doppelbock wants a long lagering time so we are planning on having this one ready for the next Bridger Brew Crew Holiday party in December 2018.

We'll also have a few commercial examples of Doppelbock on hand to taste so we can learn more about this unique beer style.
