Saratoga/Glens Falls/Albany area

I have a few items that may be of interest to the club. One is that next month we will have a pre-order sign up for a 50 lb bag of Briess two row during march. pick up is from April 1-15 and the cost is only $39 a bag. If you don’t order ahead the price for a bag is still discounted at $49 a bag for April.

Second is that we are again hosting a Big Brew Day event. We will provide all the ingredients to make the AHA’s recipe for Scottish ale for those who come and brew with us at the store. We will also have our grill there and cook up a bacon explosion and any other grillable foods that anyone wants to bring.


Hi all, again.

Just a quick reminder that we will be judging ONLY categories 9-D and 13 (all) tonight, but feel free to bring whatever you like to share.

Sadly, the cider competition at Goold’s Orchard for this weekend has been cancelled. Reed tells me they are trying to reschedule, and I will let you know when I know.

Reed Antis of the Saratoga Zymurgist is putting together an e-mail list for the homebrew store that will include special offers and other news of interest to club members. If you wish to be added to his list, drop him a note at: or give him your contact info tonight.

Roger Savoy is doing a Big Brew Day event at Hennessey Homebrew Emporium in East Greenbush, and also has a deal on bulk grain for club members. See the info below…I was told by many participants that it was a good time last year. He provides all the ingredients, you just bring your brew equipment and make beer!

Finally, we are looking to expand our number of volunteers for this year’s Knickerbocker Battle of the Brews in November at the Albany Pump Station. There is an organizational meeting this Tuesday, March 9th at 7pm at OSB. We are looking for a few assistant/trainee types, to take over various jobs in the future, and to assist those and learn the ropes from those of us in those positions. We are also looking for an activities coordinator for the southern area (Saratoga and south). This person will coordinate between the club and brewers to arrange for club brew days, club dinners, and other beer-related events. See me tonight, or reply to this if interested in volunteering.

See you tonight,

Mythical poster at The LTS Good for What Ales You Beer Journal. Loves good beer. Hates same old, same old. Muses that Bud and Miller might as well be brewed in urinals. Drinks lagers too, if they are complex and interesting.
