I'm out of town, but I do like the venue! Would have loved to see the new Riip expansion as well!

I use the very scientific "tube jammed through a rubber stopper" method to fill bottles from a keg. It works surprisingly well.

Yes, I will attempt this technology you speak of. If all goes well, I'll show up with a Wee Heavy and a Rye IPA.

Notes: BrewCommune Meeting 5/16/17 - Supermex

April 20th was our off-month meeting held at Unsung Brewery in Anaheim. We had a good turnout with 15 - 20 participants. Brewery and owner were very receptive to our club and great hosts.

Please let the forum know if you are coming or not coming to brew day or the monthly meetings. It is important we have a head count for the venues that are hosting us.

May 6th was the SCHF. Our club had 13 campsites, 22 taps, and 26 beers. Relative quality, as is usually the case with our club, was high.

Club Brew days:[b] Jon W was March, Tim S was April. Light turnout of these brew days. Please try to make these events. You can learn a tremendous amount at these events and attendance is advised.

[b]Competitions:
AHA 1st Round - Greg H has 2 beers, English IPA and a Sweet Stout advancing to the finals in Minnesota.

Homebrew brought:

Reid:
Chec Pilz
California Common

Jim :
Rye IPA
Wee Heavy

Hassam
Pale Ale

Curtis:
Blonde Ale


Fantastic style presentation by Justin: (Justin also went above and beyond by providing the following notes:)

7a- Vienna Lager
History
Developed by Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841, became popular in the mid-late 1800s. Now nearly extinct in its area of origin, the style continues in Mexico where it was brought by Santiago Graf and other Austrian immigrant brewers in the late 1800s.

Description
A moderate-strength amber lager with a soft, smooth maltiness and moderate bitterness, yet finishing relatively dry. The malt flavor is clean, bready-rich, and somewhat toasty, with an elegant impression derived from quality base malts and process, not specialty malts and adjuncts. Vienna malt provides a lightly toasty and complex malt profile. Only the finest quality malt should be used, along with Continental hops, preferably Saazer types or Styrians.

Examples
1. Figueroa Mountain Danish Red Lager - 2015 BJCP classic example
2. Negra Modelo - 2008 BJCP classic example


7b- Altbier
History
The traditional style of beer from Düsseldorf. “Alt” refers to the “old” style of brewing that was common before lager brewing became popular. Predates the isolation of bottom-fermenting yeast strains, though it approximates many characteristics of bottom-fermenting lager beers. Many of the classic examples can be found in brewpubs in the Altstadt (“old town”) section of Düsseldorf.

Description
A well-balanced, well-attenuated, bitter yet malty, clean, and smooth, amber- to copper-colored German beer. The bitterness is balanced by the malt richness, but the malt intensity and character can range from moderate to high (the bitterness increases with the malt richness). A top-fermented lagered beer, fermented at cool ale temperature (59–68 °F), often conditioned at bottom-fermentation temperatures (about 50 °F) and then lagered at cold temperatures to produce a cleaner, smoother palate than is typical for most ales.

Examples
Alaskan Amber - 2008 BJCP classic example

FYI I recommend posting a poll regarding attendance as was often done last year. I, for example, didn't respond to the post just to announce I wasn't going to make the meeting, but had you posted a poll, I would have affirmed "No".

This was also mentioned at the club meeting. Good Idea! I'll start making the meeting posts as polls now.
