Apocalypse Series - Homebrewing

When the zombie/robot/ninja/everything apocalypse happens, how will you survive? Learn valuable skills by attending our apocalypse series meetups!

In this two week event, we will learn how to make and bottle beer with Jack Chastain, a homebrewing officianado. We will be making an Irish red that will be ready for consumption by St. Patrick's day. Everyone attending will be able to take home bottles of beer after the second week's meeting. The details are as follows:

First meeting - Brewing
Date: Sunday, Feburary 3rd
Time: 10am-2pm
Place: Jack Chastain's house

Second meeting - Brewing
Date: Sunday, Feburary 10th
Time: 10am-12pm
Place: Jack Chastain's house

1) What should I bring with me?
-Warmish clothes. We will not (necessarily) be "outside" - I have a (moderately) heated garage we will use, doors closed. It should be warm(er) than outside. Chairs will exist and there may even be food and drink. both and cold.

2) Is there a cost for this event?
-There is some cost involved in order to obtain the brewing materials. A $5-$10 donation would be appreciated. Cost to the participants will cover the brew supplies purchased for it - so you will "own" your own beer here. At the end of the bottling day, you will take home a quantity of beer that is an even distribution among all the participants

3) What if I can't make one of the meetings?
-We may be making a second batch on the bottling day (which would require an additional bottling meeting). Stay tuned.

    I have reserved 5 (tentatively) for a Tuthilltown Distillery tour at noon Sunday, Feb 24 - I'd like to get a more solid count to give Tuthilltown, if possible. Should we set up a new Meetup for that? Is noon a good time? It could also be at 2:00 or, I think, 4:00 - but that is probably getting a bit late.

      Is it just going to be you and Sean? Pyg coming at all? His wife too maybe? Anyone else? I think there could be a small charge for the tour and tasting (I think the tasting might be a little - but you get to keep the nosing glass.. .or did) - just a head's up.

      With Sean being down with a cold, I will call them this morning and cancel today - we will do it some other time. They will be there - unless they burn down again. Ooo. Don't say that!

    Hey - there's no HomeBrewing 3 - anyone showing up today to bottle? The first two brews have cleared nicely and the second two are easily able to continue fermenting another week - activity has slowed to about 2-3 bubbles a minute, slow, but not completely finished. Bottling is definitely on the plate for today.

    The BAD news is my espresso machine has died. Still have "regular" coffee though - and again, I didn't get out for snacks, darn it. This week has just been a real mess work-wise. Sorry about that.

      Two of us will be there. We'll scrub and bottle like a boss. Would you like some espresso?

      Thanks - but I am good to go with regular coffee. Appreciate it though. Maybe I will put a pot of regular brew on about 0950. See you around 1000!

    Thanks to a hectic week mostly involving cars, I did not get additional snacks this time. Coffee is ready to go though!
