Death Valley n00bs beer brew meet
 
I offered to brew up some beer for the DV meet up in March. Given the number of participant and the amount of beer needed it quickly became apparent to me that my kitchen and equipment was going to be vastly inadequate.

I found this place www.brewbakers1.com and suggested a meetup for anyone interested in brewing some beer.

I started this thread so we can brainstorm and coordinate everything and not clog up the meet up thread.

I will edit this post with those "IN" as they commit. Hopefully those interested can commit some $ to this as well as this isn't going to be cheap. Their website list $250 for 6 cases. If this takes off and we can guarantee them a certain amount maybe we can negotiate the price down a bit.


[Just to clarify]
I got some "legal council" (I asked for it) about the wording of the money for beer. Just to clarify what I mean by "contribute" is how ever many peeps show up we split the costs of the brew day equally. Meaning I am not paying for everyone to go and "get free beer" everyone should know this going in. There are legal issues about selling alcohol without a license and I don't want anyone to think I'm breaking any laws here.

Chime in with any suggestions!

I have no idea what's needed or when it's gonna be but I'd definitely wanna join in at any capacity I can contribute :thumb:1drink

mike that's a good idea, especially the proceeds will go to a non-profit group whose objective is trail maintenance and to keep them open to motorized vehicles.

No date yet. I'm heading to the desert tomorrow and plan to start working on putting everything together when I get back. I just wanted to get the idea out there and get the thread started.

traveltoad 12-25-2012 05:22 PM

Yeah, there's interest!:clap

We did a similar thing for a bike ride we do and it was a blast.

Plan on eating there as they have great pizza and bread. (from the left over wheat and yeast)

Get someone talented to make the labels then the bottles become collectors items.

Have a scientist type (like my wife) mix the ingredients with the helper so the beer comes out all right, they will let you make some pretty crappy beer if you don't watch out. Ours was really good and had a kick. I can find out what it was.

It is a two part process, brewing and then bottling a few weeks later.

If I'm around I'd like to do it again.
