Next Meeting - Feb. 12 at the Gaslight, 3 PM

It's a home brew porter taste test!  Now what exactly is a porter?
Porter is said to have been popular with transportation workers
of Central London, hence the name. Most traditional British
brewing documentation from the 1700’s state that Porter was a
blend of three different styles: an old ale (stale or soured), a new
ale (brown or pale ale) and a weak one (mild ale), with various
combinations of blending  .

Today's porters are typically brewed using a pale malt base with
the addition of black malt, crystal, chocolate or smoked brown
malt.  Hop bitterness is moderate on the whole and colour ranges
from brown to black.

Next  Regular Meeting - Sunday, Feb. 12,  3 PM
Home Brew Battle
Whose beer will reign supreme?  Find out at our next GB15 meeting as
we hold our first ever home brew Porter competition.  Each contestant
should bring at least 4 bottles of their beer for the blind tasting.  

Per the rules of the contest each entrant has used the same ingredients
supplied by U-Brew making the contest one that truly focuses on the sill
of the brewer.   Beers will be judged by a  blind tasting which will follow
accepted national standards.  All results will be certified by the DB15
Board of Cask Commissioners.

Every registered DB15 member present, brewer and non brewer alike,  
will serve as a judge in the contest.  

Be sure to join us for what promises to be a great, fun filled beer event!
