Please Bring $45 Cash with you.  Keep Collecting 12 oz & 22 oz bottles (no twist offs).  My calculations show that each person needs to bring or buy the equivalent of 32 -12 oz bottles and will take home approximately the same amount of beer for the $45 investment.

* Update * March 28th is the date - Please update your RSVP's and Calendars accordingly.  This will be open to everyone to help reduce the cost ($500 for the 4 pots (48 gallons or 20 cases of beer)  I am hoping we can pick 4 or 5 brews and then Mix & Match/ Swap bottles at about 4 weeks after the Meetup (when the beer is drinkable)

I just brewed a 12 gallon batch of beer at "Let's Brew! It was a ton of Fun! The host was willing to talk about doing a brew session from 6:00- 8:30 pm on a Thursday night (with Bottling scheduled 2-3 weeks after brewing(small groups- during the week) & Beer ready to Drink 4-6 weeks after brewing).

The cost is about $1 per bottle and we would need to book 4- 12 gallon kettles. My best guess is if we can bring 8 to 12 people together, this would bring the cost to about $50-$75 per person and you would go home with up to 48- 64 bottles of Beer! It's is a bit of money upfront, but a LOT OF GOOD BEER! We can make our own PINTS & STICKS BREW!

I would love to do this! We would have the whole place to ourselves, the staffs' undivided attention, be able to drink beer, knit, and hangout while we brew our own beer!

Please say yes if you are able to commit. The more people, the less the cost....So 8 people equals about $50- $75 (depending on the beer chosen to brew)per person... And it willl only go down from there!  We can brew 4 to 5 very different types of beer with almost no limits!

What do you ladies & Gentlemen Say?

    I would like a porter (Kona Pipeline or Smoked Porter) or stout (like the Double Chocolate) on the list. Chimay, walking man, etc is fine otherwise. :)
