April 2014

The March meeting was held at the home of Scott Bieber.

The Big Brew is coming up on Saturday, May 3rd.  It will be held at the home of JoeBob Jacobs.  The address is 648 Churchman’s Road, Newark, DE 19702.  Please plan to bring your equipment and spend the day brewing with your fellow FSBers.  We will have more details at the April meeting.  In the meantime, feel free to check out http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/aha-events/national-homebrew-day/ to find out more information, suggested recipes, etc.  Hope to see everyone there!

The Battle of the Brews will be held as part of the Delaware State Fair again this year on Saturday, July 19th.  Entries are being capped at a total of 400, but there is no limit to the number of entries per person like there was last year.  Registration opens on April 1st and runs until June 1st or until all slots are filled.  Please enter this competition as it is a great opportunity for feedback on your beer from certified BJCP judges as well as a good way to represent the club.  We’ve had numerous winners in the past and hope to continue that tradition!  For more information, check out http://i2.saffireevent.com/files.ashx?t=fg&f=Battle_of_the_Brews_Page_3.14.14.pdf&rid=DelawareStateFair.

The next meeting will be held on Friday, April 18th at the home of Kevin McMullin.
