2021 BIG BREW… A big thank you to Matt Gohring and Code Brewing for providing wort for this year’s Big Brew. Nineteen brewers brewed 130 gallons on Saturday, May 1. The recipe included the following: 74.5% Briess 2-row, 9.3% Briess Carapils, 6.2% Briess Caramel 40, 5.0% Canada Malting Red Wheat, 5.0% Briess Chocolate Malt. Target for OG was 1.055. Look for this brew to show up at meetings in June and July. Hey! If we want to do a BB gathering and tasting, Matt said he would welcome us back to Code. Perhaps a June or July social gathering at Code?!

COMBINED CLUB-BREW EVENT… From the South Omaha SOB’s Bernie Doerr: “Hello Lagers. The South Omaha Brewers would like to do a combined brew event with you in Lincoln this summer. We are thinking about a pro-am event at a brewery. We have started looking for a host, but wanted to know if you are interested.” Are we interested? I think we are, however, we’re going to need some support from the membership. Who would like to volunteer to help with this group event?
