Next meeting: 4th April 2011

Yes, we’re still here… upstairs in The Wenlock Arms, 26 Wenlock Road London N1 7TA. 6pm onwards.

This month’s talk is an experiment: Is there a noticeable difference in priming sugar types? Ben Fields has had an interesting idea to put people’s palettes to the test… should be fun. There will also be the usual Brewing Q&A and tasting of members’ beers.

All new members welcome from beginners to advanced brewers, just turn up on the night.

Next meeting: Monday 7th February 2011

There is currently no talk but we’re working on it! Watch this space…
There will also be the usual beer tasting and evaluation and question and answer session.

If you have beer for the tasting, please bring 3 pints/ 3x500ml bottles / 1.5 litres and let me know in advance so I can book in your beer in for a tasting slot. For the Q&A part, please send me any questions you would like answered, and I will email them to the group. We can then discuss them at the meeting.

All new members welcome – just turn up on the night.

LAB – now on Facebook

Its still in its infancy but LAB now have a presence on the omnipresent Facebook. Unsurprisingly, the direct URL is facebook.com/londonamateurbrewers.

Come pay a visit, say ‘Hi’, give us a ‘Like’ and stir up a debate. All welcome.

Next meeting: Monday 1st November

The next meeting will be held at the usual venue – The Wenlock Arms, 6 Wenlock Road, London, N1 7TA.

The talk: how to (safely) convert a cheap kettle into an element for your boiler by Mike Ellenberg – a great ‘how to’ guide to an essential bit of kit, especially if you’re looking into improving your beers by doing a full-wort boil or wanting a back-up element to complement your existing set-up.

There will also be the usual beer tasting and evaluation and question and answer session.

If you have beer for the tasting, please bring 2 pints/1 litre and let me know in advance so I can book in your beer in for a tasting slot (several still available). For the Q&A part, please send me any questions you would like answered, and I will email them to the group. We can then discuss them at the meeting.

All new members welcome – just turn up on the night.

Nord pas-de-Calais, brewing region of France

From left to right:

Brasserie Au Baron – Saison Saint Médard
Amber Bière de Garde, 7% ABV

Brasserie d’Annoeullin – Lepers 8
Biere Blonde

Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Brune
Biere Brune, 7% ABV

Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Triple
Belgian Triple, 8.5% ABV

And a bottle of sweet farmhouse cider, just for good measure.
