Thanks for coming down to DTC for the May Club meeting last night.
Things we talked about
Sean gave us an excellent run down on mead and making mead. The presentation is on FB or here
We received the results of the water analysis done by Hayden. Unfortunately Hayden couldn't be at the meetings so if you have any questions for him ping him on FB
The Feral brew day was held over the past weekend. It was a great day. The competition is to be held at the June meeting (13 June) with BJCP judging at Andrew's place on the weekend of 17/18 June. Please let Andrew know if you can judge or steward
We're looking to hold a case swap for our next club social event. This is planned to be mid-August some time. Pop down ideas for what we could brew on the FB page
Hilly was looking for vollies to help bottle the barrel beer but that's probably done by now. Thanks again for arranging all of this Hilly
Don't forget about a bunch of upcoming extra-club events such as Caboose, Backyard Brewing and Royal Show
Cheers and happy brewing (also mead and cider making)
1 thought on “May Club Meeting”
Many thanks to Hayden for the water analyses.
This is the start of a valuable data base the club needs to retain.
One observation on the two cases where both unfiltered and filtered samples were tested is that the Chlorine levels barely change! I put in a 2-stage sediment and carbon filter with the main aim of reducing Chlorophenol flavours (I was using PotMet) – and on the understanding that carbon filtration takes out the offending Chlorine/Chloride ions – is this not the case, Hayden / anyone?
Do I need to go to RO or bottled water to get away from these off-flavours?
