November NEWS – and a Request for Help.

The November meeting was a the 412 brewery in McKees Rocks. 

  • 17 5-gallon shares of stout were distributed (more on that later). 
  • Adam Bashline was elected to a 2 year term VP, term starting after the December meeting;
  • Paul Norton was elected to a 2 year term Secretary, term starting after the December meeting;
  • A great time was had by all.


  • Saturday December 7th, starting at noon at Spoonwood.
  • Details AND sign-up here.
  • PLEASE sign up now.  We have to order appetizers in advance and want to make sure we have enough.. and that’s soon.
  • As previously mentioned, we will have a “fun comp” with the stouts from November’s common wort – and any other stouts you want to bring.
  • Spouses, significant others and kids welcome.  (Homebrew, too, but that’s aways true.)


I was one of the stout wort recipients.  I threw in an infected batch of 001 and now have a sour stout…and an inclination to experiment with an otherwise wasted batch.  What do YOU think I should add to this to try to make it palatable (before December 7th?)  Email me with your suggestions.


Thanks and I hope to see you December 7th.
