No more club gear…Auction?
We’d like to get a list together of what’s in Balitbrew’s inventory and then see what format makes the most sense to divest it.
New quorum: this month it’s 7 for simple majority, 9 for 2/3 majority
Meet the New Ed Czar
Becky has many things planned for this year. Caiti will be talking about wild fermentation at the next meeting and Judy from Checkspot will be coordinating a visit later in the year.
The sensory seibel kit will be done at the general meeting, probably split out between 3 or 4 dates so all club members have the chance to participate.
Next Iron Brewer?
Kris’ challenged Jon to battle Hefeweizen. Judging will be at the March meeting!
New Business/Member Announcements
Max’s Sour Wild Ale Day – Feb 18
Online engagement - Kris looked at some statistics and facebook does get us much engagement. Far more eye’s came to the site from posting on reddit. Greg advocated for trying a meetup group. It’s 10/15 dollars a month depending on the subscription level. We trimmed the IT costs down about that much last year by moving to new hosts and consolidating things so we’ll apply the savings to that for a while. Greg will follow up.
Location:Union Craft Brewing, 1700 W 41st St #420, Baltimore, MD 21211, USA
This meeting has been moved to 1 PM to accommodate the Super Bowl later in the evening. Join the club for our monthly meeting to talk shop and swap homebrew! This month features our Iron Brewer Cider Competitor for bragging right and the second portion of our Barrell Aged Compounds Sensory Panel.
