Saison Article

I recently wrote an article on the saison, the WBB club brew for this year: http://www.spectatortribune.com/article/tis-the-saison/

There’s some tips and other ingredient ideas you could add to your saison to make it truly yours. I am looking forward to trying the different variations in April.

My challenge still stands that if any WBB  gets a higher score than me during the Spring homebrew competitions for their saison, they will get their entry fee refunded for the French and Belgian style.

October Competition

In honour of Oktoberfest, we have decided to run a mini German beer competition for our October meeting. The styles accepted will be: Oktoberfest Lager, German Wheat Beer or Altbier.

If you plan on making an Oktoberfest Lager, you would need to get started on it in the next week or two because that beer needs to lager for some time (usually, the breweries brew that lager in March so it can be ready in October but I think it still can be good if you start on it shortly).

So, dust off your lederhosen and get ready to brew a German beer.  Nathan Koop has agreed to pull out his accordian and play some polka music. 😉  (Steve G, keep your thoughts to yourself)
