In new business, we discussed the upcoming Iron Mash XX. We approved Kathy’s proposal to buy a beer flaw kit and use it to taste off-favors during meetings without competitions. We also agreed to bring recipes for competition beers and publish the recipes of winning beers on the website.
There was no competition this month. As we feasted on Mark’s nilgai sausage and pheasant tortilla soup, we reduced homebrew inventory and enjoyed interesting commercial beers from Rusty Keyes (New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA), Jay Porterfield (Jester King ???/Parish Brewing Ghost In The Machine NEIPA) and Andy (Manhattan Project Oktoberfest).
