Yep, we picked one up as well. We've been travelling around a lot so we have a good selection of east coast beers that we'll pair with it.  :drink:

I got an early Christmas gift today. My wife got me the new craft beer advent calendar this year it's showcasing Belgian beers. I'm really looking forward to it.
Anyone else get one?

I brewed for the first time in a very long time on Saturday. 5 gal of my go to stout recipe. I haven't had beer on tap in a while.

It was nice getting back into it!

Cheers Folks,

Sounds like you have some nice versitile water to brew with. Im looking forward to brewing with it. (im used to ontarions extremely hard water, which makes a pretty darker beer, but is not great for pale ales unless you cut it with RO).

Picaroons use ringwood yeast- they sound awesome, the only thing I find with that yeast is it needs a good D-rest, otherwise you can get a bit a of a diaceytl bomb!

I will certainly pay up my dues soon and join in on the group buys and competitions!

Welcome Phil!

From time to time we do run home brewing competitions within the club just for fun. As a matter of fact we're due for one.

If you're a fan of Ringwood yeast you're gonna love Picaroons. It's our local and oldest craft brewery they specialize in English style beers and Ringwood is their proprietary yeast.

As pliny the water here is quite versatile  I'm on well water and it's moderately hard but makes pretty decent beer. All the local craft breweries have great success using the city water though.

As a paid club member you'll have access to group buys of grain, hops and yeast. We just filled our latest grain buy and we'll be starting the next one very soon. We order in 40 bag intervals that's one full pallet of grain directly from BSG. We usually order directly from suppliers this way we can save quite a bit on the costs of ingredients.

Anyways it's good to hear you're moving out here and you're interested in the club. There's a wealth of knowledge within the club and I'm sure you'll enjoy all the club has to offer.

Welcome Phil.
Tim Taylor - awesome beer!

The Municipal water in the City of Fredericton is considered Medium Hard.
When planning a brew, I input the following as a starting water profile in ppm (is = mg/L):
Ca: 42.4
Mg: 3.46
Na: 12.7
Cl: 33.2
SO4: 14
CaCO3: 90 (Alkalinity)

Then make mineral adjustments based on the recipe.

The above information is apparently "Typical Water Test Results". If you're living in another town or on a well, that's a different story and should be verified accordingly. I've been to some folks places with wells and it can be quite hard.
The city water profile produces pleasant, Lagers, Stouts, Porters, IPAs, etc. I find it to be generally flexible water.
