Left Barrel Brew Day

There’s a lot of interest in our brewday. It’s being managed by Clinton and more info will be emailed out and shared in the Facebook group soon.

It’s Oct 17 at Left Barrel Balhannah from 9am. You take home a 20L wort to ferment and bring back fo the barrel in a couple of weeks. So the only catch it you need fermentor space for that time.

If you want to be a part of it, please email and watch your emails for more to come. We’ll also set up a discussion on Facebook to fine tune the recipe and plan.

Next meeting

We will be at Pirate Life Brewery, Port Adelaide for a special tasting session and a bit of a focus on gose and sours. More info to come.
