A CARBOY update

Hey everyone! I wanted to reach out and try to answer some questions you may have about CARBOY and our plans to resume club activities. After some discussion among the club leadership, we’ve decided that a June meeting is just too soon to resume normal meeting. If only from a logistical point of view, most of the venues that normally host our meeting need every inch of space as they try to space out seating 6ft. It would be unfair to even ask them to accommodate our normal 25+ member meetings where they could be using that space to drive badly needed revenue. In addition, the health and safety of the members of CARBOY are front and center, and so we need to work out the logistics of what a meeting even looks like.

 

All of this being said, there are a few things we can do. First, we will be organizing a CARBOY group zoom (video chat) on what would be our normal meeting day this month, June 24. More details regarding this will follow on both the website and Facebook. Second, I would ask anyone that has a LARGE backyard/outdoor meeting space/farm/etc that would be willing to host a well spaced meeting in July to please reach out to us. It is one of the possible avenues we are looking into. Finally, if you are out of beer, please consider visiting one of our many club sponsors to refill. Most if not all of them have contact free shopping and pickup, and some have even opened their doors to a limited crowd for service on-site. They are all dealing with a large revenue loss and are hurting. Lets support them as they have supported us over the years. A full list of sponsors is to follow in a later message.

 

Finally, There are a number of great online resources for continuing homebrewing education, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of them. Below are some of my favorite, and if you have others I encourage you to share them in the comments below.

In support of Social Distancing and the fact that none of our meeting sponsors are able to host us, this month’s meeting has been cancelled.

Support those in your community that are more at risk when out & about for daily requirements, wash your hands and brew good beer.

CARBOY Homebrew Club monthly membership meeting for members and guests.
 
This month’s educational talk is on non-enzymatic (cold) mashing. If you have an idea for a future presentation or a desire to give one yourself, please reach out to Andy at the meeting. We have a couple more lined up but are always looking for ideas and volunteers!
 
As a reminder, if anyone is looking for feedback on one of their beers from a BJCP certified judge, we’ll have a way to identify existing judges within the club so you can seek them out and ask for feedback. This will be on a volunteer basis so the number of judges may fluctuate from month to month.
 
Looking forward to seeing everyone out at Neuse!

CARBOY Homebrew Club monthly membership meeting for members and guests.

We’re going to try a couple new things this month. Both are designed to expand on brewing education and feedback within the club.

First, one of our members is going to give short educational talk on Kveik, an exciting new yeast option for both new and seasoned homebrewers. If you have an idea for a future presentation or a desire to give one yourself, please reach out to Andy at the meeting. We have a couple more lined up but are always looking for ideas and volunteers!

Second, if anyone is looking for feedback on one of their beers from a BJCP certified judge, we’ll have a way to identify existing judges within the club so you can seek them out and ask for feedback. This will be on a volunteer basis so the number of judges may fluctuate from month to month.

Finally, the 25th Anniversary Shamrock Homebrew Competition is right around the corner. It would be great to get a good showing from the club, so if you’re interested start thinking about what you’d like to enter now!

Looking forward to seeing everyone out at Bond Brothers!
