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!

BYO Magazine, Discounted subscriptions for club members!

We are now able to offer a discounted subscription to the American homebrewing magazine BYO.

The normal subscription price for Australia, including international shipping, is $45 USD (~$48 AUD + bank fees).

We are able to offer to our financial club members an 8 issue subscription for $40 AUD, including international shipping. This represents an impressive saving over the normal price, with the additional benefit that SABC receives a percentage of this price which goes directly back to support the club!

There is a limited time on this offer, as we need to compile the members who wish to take advantage of this and their payments within 1 month, and there is a minimum of 10 members for this offer (Restriction imposed by BYO, not SABC). Cut off date is September 17th (Club Meeting), any interest after this date will miss out!
