It's BIG BREW DAY!!
It's that time of year again, when all the ALEiens gather for a communal brew day at the Hulmeville Inn, to celebrate National Homebrew Day. While all ALEiens are welcome, we only have spots for 10-12 brewers/teams, so sign up now! This years partner brewery is BROKEN GOBLET in Bristol, PA!! Even if you're not brewing, its a great chance to see other brewers set ups, see how they brew, ask questions, and share homebrew, of course!

Where: The Porch, out back at the Hulmeville
Time: Mash in by 9:30am
(or Boil by 10:30am if Extract brewing)
Yeast: LONDON ALE 013 (provided) or CALI ALE 001
We provide water, electricity, and London Ale yeast for those who want it.
Contest: If you want to participate in the contest part of it, here are your brewing guidelines:

Entries: Bring your finished beer (2 bottles) to the June 28, 2016 meeting. Late entries can be dropped off at Broken Goblet by 7/17/16.
The beers will be judged by the powers that be at Broken Goblet, and winners will be announced at the July 26, 2016 meeting. There will be prizes for first, second, and third, including a grand prize of BREWING A BEER AT BROKEN GOBLET with the guys! You don't need to brew at big brew day, but you do need to use 001 or 013 yeast strains. If you would like, you can come to the Hulmeville Inn to pick up free yeast, just bring a clean, sanitized, ready to go container.
Fermented Films [NEW!]: The folks from Fermented Films are working with Broken Goblet and will be on hand to film and speak with us during the brew day. They'll follow the process through the contest judging and will produce a short video to document.
If you don't want to enter the contest, you are still more than welcome to brew at The Hulmeville that day and use the free yeast.
