National Learn to Homebrew Day Details

Join SODZ, DOH, and HOPs as we participate in National Learn to Homebrew Day! We are being hosted by Nocterra Brewing in Powell this year.

The event is Saturday, November 5th, so come on out! Here are some specifics important for brewers to know:

-The brew day can begin as early as 9 am.

-Nocterra is supplying up to 10 lbs of base grain to each brewer and heated water for mashing.

-Nocterra is also providing yeast. Chico ale, lager, pub, and Helio Gazer will be available. Pub is the yeast that was used in the LTHBD collab beer this year. If you plan to use Helio Gazer, reach out to Bruce or Brian about the recipe.

-Electric systems are, unfortunately, discouraged given the nature of the setup, but please come out and engage anyway!

SODZ asks that seasoned homebrewers encourage as many people to come out and learn as possible. This always has the potential to be such an amazing community event for this hobby.

Not to mention, the collab beer brewed with Nocterra will be tapped that day also! It is called "Learn to ESB." There'll even be two infusions and a casked version, so you really don't want to miss out on this event.

Please note that the location of our Beer for Boobs Homebrew Competition and fundraiser has had a last minute change of venue. It will be held on October 22nd at the location of the new Hoster Brewery, which is located near the airport in Columbus, at 653 North James Road. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
