Last night we had a small meeting but were able to accomplish quite a bit. However, we need everyone’s feedback on the September Brew to be able to move forward.
Let’s assume we are going with the Willy Wonka theme, everyone seems to like that idea and is on board. Our next brew will focus on making beer for the Christmas Party, centered around this theme. The idea is to have 3-4 recipes going at once at the next brew (smaller batches of course) and have them each be chocolate based. Each recipe would do something different with the chocolate/willy-wonka theme. Some of the ideas we threw around were Chocolate-Orange, A Salty Chocolate Gose, a Chocolate Cherry and a lighter Chocolate (white chocolate?) beer that is dyed Purple.
Everyone can submit recipes in the comments below and then we can all vote on them. The top 3 will be the brewmasters for that beer (or will at least be in charge of delegating the brew to someone else). On brew day we will split up into teams for each recipe.
Besides the chocolate based recipes, we thought it would also be interesting to have one more experimental recipe that would be the” Oompa Loompa beer”. This could be more bizarre than the others, so feel free to submit your ideas for that as well.
Here are the current September Brew Details.
