Scottish Craft Brewers Meeting Sunday 27th January

Brewers

There has been a bit of a break since out last weekend meeting but we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to Elgin House in Edinburgh on Sunday 27th January for a meeting and competition. The January meeting is traditionally our best attended meeting so hopefully we can see as many faces as possible.

Venue Details:
Elgin House, 6 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RG
Start time is 11am but if you are bringing beers on the day you will need to be at the hall for 10:30am

Competition:
Arek is going to run the competition again this year and has put together the beer registration website: http://competition.scottishcraftbrewers.org/ . All the details can be found on the competition pages.

Talks:
While the judging takes place there will be a couple of talks up until lunch. We have still to finalise the running order but Brewlab is kindly providing some aroma samples (these help you to detect off flavours in your beer) and also some yeast slants to give away so we will spend some time discussing these.

Lunch:
Davie Martin and his team will be preparing lunch for us again this year. As you know this is always a fabulous lunch so we are thrilled that Davie has offered. We need to provide Davie with number for the catering so if you are planning to attend then it is essential that you let me know.

After Lunch
We will sell raffle tickets during lunch so will make the draw (please remember to bring something for the raffle). It will also be a chance to bring and taste your beers that have not been entered into the competition.

Once the competition is over we will announce the winners and then go on to sample the competition beers.

Cheers

Calum

Diacetyl Force Test

This is another simple quality control test I learned about from Chris White and Jamil Zainasheff’s yeast book. This one is even simpler than the forced wort and forced ferment tests, requiring nothing more than some means to pull a sample from your fermentor, two glasses, some foil, and hot water.
