Agenda: In addition to our usual business, veteran homebrewer John J. Palmer is a respected brewer, author and speaker in homebrewing circles. His years of hands-on experience, combined with in-depth knowledge helps homebrewers consistently make great beers. Mr. Palmer’s talk with the club will focus on water and its role in the brewing process.

The club has contacted Code Brewing about providing wort for the Big Brew on Saturday, May 1. Hopefully it’s warm by then, so some people can brew outside at a distance, if you feel comfortable with that. Keep an eye out for the sign up sheet and discussion of styles at the April meeting.
From the South Omaha SOBs’ 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?
We are planning the next intra-club contest and plan to buy at least some of the ingredients for our members. That is, if you have paid your dues for the year. Details TBD. (The link for membership renewal is up a few lines. Renew it!)
