Brewing a Berliner Weiss by a Friend of BLC

image“Beer Loves Company? More like, ‘Everyone Loves Company.'” Yeah, yeah…we know a most of our posts lately have been guest posts, but other people have a lot of interesting stuff to say. Today, we give everyone a look at making a Berliner Weisse with digestive pills. See, we told you it was interesting. Enjoy!

The clerk at Wild by Nature didn’t even bat an eye at my response which was a sure sign she had no idea what I was talking about.  I decided to press on in the vain hope of trying to not seem like a nut, “There’s a particular strain of bacteria that was historically used in beer which I can only find in these digestive aid pills.”  She smiled politely, the way you do when finding yourself unexpectedly in a conversation with someone who has obvious issues, and then hoped it all works out for me.  In retrospect she was remarkably professional since I probably sounded like I was about to start cooking meth in my kitchen when I told her I was using the pills to brew a Berliner Weisse.

Saturday December 7th 2013 at 7:30 pm the first annual Home Brew Contest will be held at Fatty McGee’s in East Islip, New York. The event was organized and is sponsored by Arbor Wine and Beer Making Supplies and they have asked us to be the judges. We are looking forward to meeting all of the brewers who are competing and of course trying their liquid labors of love. Two prizes are up for grabs: Most True to Style and Most Unique. Drink specials will be going on throughout the night and if we had to guess from the poster (which we do because we have no idea what the specials will be) they might have something to do with Blue Point Brewing Company beer. A homebrewing competition and specials on Blue Point beer, pretty cool eh?

0 comments

Next week, the 35th annual American Homebrewers Association National Homebrewers Conference will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Though the conference is officially Thursday, June 27-Saturday, June 29, there are pre-conference activities taking place earlier in the week including a BJCP tasting exam, which we here at Beer Loves Company will be taking (fingers crossed!). So, what exactly does a homebrew conference entail? Well, to be honest, we are not 100% sure as this is our first time attending, but we are more than eager to find out!
