    Homebrew Education Series

    This year, the club is going to re-focus on education topics during club meetings. Want to know more about brewing water, growing your own hops or off-flavors? Come to a club meeting for the presentation - Or, volunteer to share some of your own homebrew knowledge!

    At the Feb 11 meeting, Steve Pierson will present on growing hops at home. Soil tips, trellis options, harvesting and more will be covered. For those who don't know, Steve has successfully grown multiple varieties of hops in his Nampa backyard for many years. Information on obtaining rhizomes to start your hop garden (possibly free from willing club members) will also be available.
