The DB15 is the largest beer appreciation organization in New
Jersey, but what about the East Coast? Well it's time to make
our move. Bring a new member to the next meeting, have them
officially register, and get a Gaslight beer compliments of the
DB15 Cask Commissioners.
Why sign up for the club dues full payment plan?
Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $65 covers all meetings,
plus discounts for DB15 special events.
This year members received benefits that totaled well over the dues
amount. Substantial discounts were provided for the TAP NY
beer fest trip, the Newark Bears baseball outing, the NJ Brewers
Festival, and the Victorian Dinner. In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee which is
now $10 per person.
Ask any Cask Commissioner
for the full details at the next meeting.

|March Meeting Notes
Our usual meeting chronicler, Dan Hodge, is busy on an
official tour of breweries and bars of Buffalo (NY) so he is
unable to write the meeting notes. However we have
enlisted the services of ghost writer, Casper Topper, to
handle it. The meeting was Malt Sensory Part II. In it,
Gaslight's head brewer D.J. Soboti prepared a dozen mini-
mashes of various malts and adjuncts to demonstrate the
uses of each in the brewing process. Everyone was able to
taste each of the mashes and participate in the informative
discussion period that followed.
We explored flaked adjuncts like rye, maize & oats, plus
Crystal/Caramel malts as well as a variety of roasted malts
Many thanks to DJ for all his work in putting together an
