September Members Meeting. This Wednesday!

It’s that time of the month again folks, time for our regular members meeting at The Wheaty. They’re held every 3rd Wednesday from 7pm out in the back room.

This meeting has no set discussion or presentation topic, but we will be running a dollar raffle for 2kg of spec malt – Special Roast, Melonoidin or Dark Crystal (to be decided). 100% of all money received goes directly to the club, as the malt was generously donated by a friend of the club.

This may also be your last chance to get in on the 8 issue BYO subscription for $40! This is a fantastic offer to get behind, the magazine has a good range of articles catering for brewers of every skill and experience level. It is cheaper to get the magazines via this order than to sign up for your own subscription by a good amount, with the extra benefit for your club that a percentage of the cost directly comes back to SABC!

Spots are filling fast – the offer will end at THIS club members meeting so that the details can be sent to BYO a week after the club meeting – you have until that date to get in!

We’ll see you at The Wheaty!

August Members Meeting

Our monthly members meeting is just a few days away now, 20th of August, 7pm @ The Wheatsheaf Hotel in Thebarton.

This months topic will be a group discussion on preparing Yeast Starters; which as any experienced brewer will tell you is a good way to ensure you have the correct quantity of healthy yeast which helps your beer be the best it can be.

We’re also having a raffle at this meeting, so bring your spare gold coins! The prize is a magnetic stir-plate which was generously donated by Carter Brewing. Tickets are $2 each, with 100% of the funds going directly to SABC. Stir plates are a great way to help grow your yeast, so grab a couple of tickets!
