Lets get this thing hashed out!  What, where, how many etc.

Did I hear "not at Joe's" at the last meeting?

In dog beers, I've only had 1.

Thought it was at Joes.  I will check.  Maybe Piersons?

Nice try, J. I see you working. Miss one meeting - get volunteered for stuff.  Grin

But seriously, I would be willing to host it. Attendance might be limited, though.  It was sort of cold on the patio the last time I hosted the Polar Brew. There were a couple of frozen polar bears in my yard that day.

Never fear my cold weather brewing brothers, I will host the Polar Group Brew once again!  My apologies for not being able to attend the last few meetings but BSU decided to have my class nights on the 2nd Thursday of every month.  Bastards...

Things will be organized the same as always.  I'll have room for 10-12 systems in the garage plus extra for those who can brave the cold.  The evening of New Year's Eve will be used for preps (grain crushing, setups, etc.).  Derek and I will cook (thinking pulled pork sandwiches).  Side dishes and desserts will be pot-luck.  I haven't been brewing much lately so my keg stores are low.  If members can bring kegs to pour out of my kegerator (& picnic taps) for the party, it would be much appreciated.

If anyone has requests for recipes to brew, please share.  I'll post up a poll once we have a few suggestions.  I wouldn't mind American IPA, Black IPA, English Brown Ale, American Stout, or maybe an Alt.

More to come on the details so stay tuned.  Cheers!   Beer Toast

There he goes... volunteering me for cooking duties again.  Roll Eyes

I'm down for American IPA. I need some hoppiness after the past few months of Oktoberfest/Winter malt bombs. Something like a Ballast Point Sculpin clone would be awesome!

Personally, I'm kind of liking Joe's Alt suggestion. It seems I have a bunch of hoppy beers and one stout on tap at the moment. I have a porter and a bohemian pilner on deck. I've been thinking about doing an american amber or brown or getting an early start on next year's Oktoberfest.

We could do 2 recipes.  We've done it before.  I'll post a poll and see what the rest of the club want to do.
