Don’t forget – tomorrow night, 15th of April, is the monthly Members Meeting at the Wheaty from 7pm.
This months topic is SMASH beers – we will have a few members who have brewed beers for tasting during this meeting.
SMASH is a style of brewing where a single malt and single hop is used to showcase those specific ingredients. It’s a great way to get familar with the flavour contributions of a specific malt or hop, and despite the simple sounding recipe – some of the greatest beers in the world – German and Czech Pils for example – are single malt and single hop.
There will be a range of brewing techniques and styles on display and discussed on the night to get the most our of these basic ingredients.
It’ll be a great night!
