Neat idea for a club brew day! Pot luck brew...
« on: December 31, 2013, 12:19:41 PM »
I think our brew club is going to do a "Pot Luck" brew day.  The yeast will be predetermined with someone making a starter.  Every one else will be showing up with some ingredients, "hops or grains", but only one ingredient per person.  In addition, they'll bring some homebrew to share and a pot luck food to share.

Once everyone has arrived, we'll make a list of all of the grains and yeast and see what we have available.  We'll then design a beer around it, with every ingredient being used to make the beer.  Pot Luck beer!  Once the beer is brewed and bottled, we have a second "Pot Luck" to open the beer and have a tasting of it, and to eat "Pot Luck" food again, with all of the left over bottles of the "Pot Luck" beer split up equally and taken home.

Sounds like a great idea! You'll have to report back with the "pot luck" recipe and tasting notes.

Best of luck with the event...sounds like a good one!
