Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Club
September Beer Meeting

September 16, 2016 - 7:00

Larry's Brewing supply in Tukwila

(790 Andover Park E, Tukwila, WA 98188)

For those of you keeping score at home, this Friday is the 3rd Friday of the month.  Which can only mean one thing, the fourth Friday is a week after that.  But, more importantly, it is also when the Alers meet!  So let's get together, because we haven't had a regular meeting since June with Beerstock and camping.
The main event is a Beer Beauty Competition. We will supply a very simple score sheet and assign you an entry # (should you be Aler enough to enter). 
  • Brewers - The brewers will give a brief description of why their beer is beautiful when we start.  The brewer can serve their own beer or leave and taste others to judge, however, you won't be around to answer questions if you're out tasting. We will hand out a form (see attached, or pre-fill out and bring to the meeting).  We tend to have 30-50 folks at a meeting, so 30-50 ounces of beer is needed.  One entry per brewer.  It can be kegged or bottled or put in mason jars or ...
  • Judges- Everyone can be a judge.  Please fill out one sheet (see attached) for each beer you taste.  Just put the entry # at the top and one score sheet per judge per entry (yes, it is King County, I have to say this ...).  You can turn the forms in one at a time or hold on to them and adjust scores as you taste other beers. Scoring instructions below
    • Aroma - does it match the description and do you like it?  This is a beauty competition! 1-10 points
    • Taste - does it match the description and do you think it is awesome?  This is a beauty competition!! 1-10 points
    • Mouthfeel/Appearance - does it match the description and do you think it pint-worthy?  This is a beauty competition!!! 1-5 points
    • Overall Beauty - Smash or trash!  If you love it 5 points, not your thing 1 point.  1-5 points.
  • Overpresidemporlord - His Eminence or his appointed lackees will tally the scores.  In addition to bragging rights there will be some prizes for the top 3 average scores.  The mighty one will not accidentally announce the wrong winner either.

And also, much much much more:

  • the Style Sherpa will be presenting on Oktoberfest/Marzen
  • pleas  for help for the Joint Novembeerfest Puget Sound Pro-Am competition
  • Iron Brewer!  Yeah, two competition in one day, a double header if you will, and well, even if you won't.

So bring your beer to share and/or to put in the beauty contest!  And bring food to share too. And have a great time!!!

 
Winemaking Equipment for sale

I am an ex-member of the BEWBC. I am now retired and am selling my wine making supplies. I need to get rid of this stuff so I will entertain any reasonable offer. I have a wine press, corker, fermenters, paddle, funnel, multiple carboys, and other odds and ends. I don’t know how to contact BEWBC members, I don’t think I can log in anymore, but I do get emails from the club. I really want someone to come and take everything, and I will let it go cheap.

Fundamentals of Wine Making Class - 2016 Syrah

Saturday, August 20th & 27th, 2016

9:30 am to 2:00 pm

In cooperation with Larry's Brewing Supply, the Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Makers Club (BEWBC) is once again offering an introduction to winemaking class.

This year the class will focus on red wine making with an emphasis on dry red wine made from Syrah grapes. Topics discussed include the principal steps and decisions required to make quality red wine, essential equipment, sanitation, and testing procedures. No experience in winemaking is necessary.

The program is taught over three days.  Day 1 and 2 (Saturday 8/20 and 8/27) is devoted to wine making theory. Day 3, which will be scheduled post fermentation, will focus on testing and evaluating the student's wine. In addition, the instructor will provide hands-on instruction during grape crushing and pressing, and will assist with post fermentation and pre-bottling decisions.

Students will have an opportunity to purchase quality, WA grapes and proceed through the entire winemaking process in parallel with other's in the class.

Admission for the class is $25 to cover classroom materials and juice/wine testing expenses. The cost of grapes is not included in class fee.

Space in the class is very limited. Enrollment remains open through July 31.

Students interested in attending the class are encouraged to read beforehand, an introductory wine making book such as:

· Techniques in Home Winemaking by Daniel Pambianchi

· Home Winemaking Step by Step  by Jon Iverson

For more information and to reserve a seat in the class, contact Steve Foisie: smfoisie@gmail
