Fall Firebrew Cancelled
Note from club President, Eric Sutherland:
I’m sorry to inform you that we have decided to cancel the fall Firebrew. We just don’t have enough gallons reserved. We estimate we need a bare minimum of 120 gallons for the equipment to work properly. Unfortunately, we only had 85 gallons reserved.
To take the place of the firebrew event, several of us are gathering at the Red Salamander to brew on Saturday October 1, 2011. Mitch has kindly offered to open the Red Salamander at 10:00 am to accommodate us. Ron West has offered his all-grain equipment to use for anyone who wants to learn how to brew all-grain. In addition, Karl has a system to use. Remember, if you brew at the Salamander, there is a 30% discount on ingredients. If you leave what you brew at the Salamander for club use, the ingredients are free. There will be several experienced brewers on hand to guide you. If you just want to watch and learn, that’s OK too. I’m sure we will have samples on hand to try.
If you signed up to provide food for Firebrew, you are welcome to bring it to the event on Saturday. However, you are not obligated to do so.
Again, I am sorry that we have to cancel the Firebrew. I was really looking forward to it, but I’m sure we will have a good time on Saturday.
