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.

Note: This is a member event, which means you need to be a dues-paying member to attend. Dues help pay for the ingredients for brewing and beer provided for tasting at events like this. Learn how to join here.
