Hey peeps I know that there are some homebrewers in this bunch besides myself. Lets have a tasting party, everyone bring a case, keg/partypig of your fav home brew and we can have some fun. We could even make it a LSCN home brew contest. I am willing to host it at Marks place. non brewers are also welcome as long as you like beer cause thats what is on the menu. I was thinking first week of December or so, that way we have time to brew.

I've tried brewing with a beginners kit but each time it tastes like cider or beery-champagne. What am I doing wrong?

There are quite a few things that can cause the cidery taste. One is using corn suger instead of all malt extract, sanitation shortcomings can also cause this as well as the yeast used. Goose if you would like to come by on a day that I brew my next batch I would be happy to show you my process for brewing. It is fairly easy and yeilds great results.

In fact if anyone would like to learn ho to homebrew the way I do it then pm me and we could have a class. Of course this does require you to drink beer while you are learning to make it

Great idea! Is there room enough at Mark's to make this a full-blown LSCN party? I should be good for two cornelius kegs. Maybe I'll do a special X-mas beer just for the party. I'm getting excited just thinking about it. Oh, and I've got this recipe for blueberry wine! We'll have everyone falling down drunk!

What do you think about finding a larger location that could accomodate everyone? Can't volunteer my own place (living with parents), but probably wouldn't be hard to get someone to volunteer their home/ clubhouse for this worthy event.

Hmm, sounds like a fantastic time. I don't brew but I do LOVE beer. My father used to brew, I was never a fan of anything he brought home. They all tasted the same to me.
