June 2022 Meeting Minutes
The June, 2022 B.A.S.H. meeting AND POOL PARTY on Sunday the 12th was hosted by Jacob Dunson and Cindy Crye at their resort compound in Flour Bluff.
Jack Heim called the meeting to order and presided over the election of the slate of officers nominated during the May meeting : President -- Victor Aguilar, Vice President of Competitions -- Mark Woerner, Vice President of Social Media -- Liz Ackman, Vice President of Social Activities -- Mary Kay Schultz, Treasurer -- Walt Crawford, Secretary -- Wild Bill Lehfeld. The officers’ terms begin with the July meeting. Victor then presided over the rest of the meeting. We approved the competition schedule extension for 8/24 through 6/25. Work on the new club logo continues. We voted to allow future meeting hosts to pick the meeting start time.
Our survey of brewing volume for January through May is as follows: Club – 10 gallons (Big Brew), Wild Bill – 12.5 gallons, Paul Holder – 40 gallons, Adan Suarez – 40 gallons, Chris Ackman – 5 gallons.
The competition this month was open to any style. Double Homebrewer of the Year points were awarded to beers of the featured style (Czech pale lager/premium pale lager, BJCP 3A-3B). With three competitors, the winning beer receives three Homebrewer of the Year points (doubled for featured style), 2nd place receives two HBOY points (doubled for featured style), third place receives one HBOY point (doubled for featured style) and 4th place and beyond receive no points. Four beers were entered. Judges’ results were as follows:
Richard Ramos – American pale ale (BJCP 18B) ?/50 – 3 HBOY points
Andy Vaughn – American blonde ale (BJCP 18A) ?/50 – 2 HBOY points
Wild Bill Lehfeld – Czech pale lager (BJCP 3A) 33/50 – 2 HBOY points
Wild Bill Lehfeld – Czech premium pale lager (BJCP 3B) 32/50 – 0 HBOY points
Richard’s American pale ale thus advances to the upcoming Best of Show round.
After all six competitions in the 2022 competition season, cumulative HBOY results are as follows:
Paul Holder – 27 HBOY points
Wild Bill Lehfeld – 13 HBOY points
John Fulton – 4 HBOY points
Richard Ramos – 3 HBOY points
Mike Terrenzi – 2 HBOY points

Paul Holder is therefore 2022 Homebrewer of the Year.

Interesting commercial beers included Dave and Kathy Clark’s Divided Sky Rye IPA, Cindy’s Lone Pint Tornado Shark American Strong Ale, Ron Merriman’s Man Overboard Shall Not Perish IPA/Midway Magic Kolsch/Great White Ghost of the Arabian Coast Pale Ale, Mary Kay’s Weldwerks Advanced Fluid Dynamics DIPA/Four Noses Spacey Casey NEIPA and Adan’s Stone Enjoy By 7.4.22 DIPA..
