We were able to sample five variations from the same Big Brew Pale Ale that we brewed together.
Andy used Muntons Ale Dry Yeast and dry hopped with Cascade
Chris used a California Lager yeast then dry hopped with NZ Motueka and NZ Hallertau hops
Randy used 1056 American Ale yeast then dry hopped with home-grown Goldings
Gabe used Safale US05 American Ale yeast then dry hopped & keg hopped with Simcoe
Gabe also soaked two chopped jalapeños in tequila anejo then strained and added to a one gallon batch of the Pale Ale.

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month (with occasional brewday get-togethers) in Northfield to share each other’s creations and discuss brewing. The only requirement for joining us is to be of age and bring 2 bottles of your own homebrew to share (after that, you are welcome to bring an interesting commercial beer if you haven’t brewed anything new) and $20 for dues. If you are interested in homebrewing but haven’t brewed yet or can’t make it to the meetings, you are welcome to join our community on Facebook.
We discussed a possible meeting date of Tuesday, December 18th next month. I’ll update when we have a confirmed date.
Seth, Collin, and Jordan (SCJ) joined us and shared a number of their beers:
SCJ’s Berserker Porter (Based off of Steinbart’s Porter Recipe)
SCJ’s Yggy’s Dew (Based off of the Whitehouse Honey Ale)
SCJ’s Bitches Brew Coffee Ale

If you’re out and about getting ready for the holiday, stop by and say hi! 608 Maple Court. My first brew day in the new house!
The Contented Cow is hosting us to celebrate Learn to Homebrew Day! We’ll be brewing on the patio November 3rd from 3-7pm. We will be brewing a few recipes and will post them here once finalized.
If you are new to brewing, there is lots of interesting information on the American Homebrewers Association website. Once you’ve brewed a batch, contact us to come to a Milltown Mashers meeting and share yours while getting to sample other brewers’ creations.
We discussed possibly doing an event for National Learn to Homebrew Day on November 3rd.
