A DYS club brew is scheduled for February 25, 2012 with more info in the DYS Club Brew thread. We will be brewing an all-grain and an extract beer. Anyone is welcome to come brew, help brew, grill, and / or brew your own homebrew. There will be some kegs and bottles of homebrew to share with everyone.

The DYS is a non-profit educational organization and all donations (including membership) to the club are considered Charitable Donations on the 1040 Federal Tax.

The 2012 club membership is $25 for individual and $35 for family. The membership form is located on the DYS website. I don't think existing members need to complete the form, just pay dues to Zek, Gene, or Julie at the meetings. Membership includes the use of club's: book and yeast library, equipment, and the private and members recipe forums.

On March 31, 2012, DYS will be sponsering and hosting The 2012 Louisiana Homebrew Clubs Brewing Competition at the Cajun Brewing in Lafayette, LA. You can find the complete rules and details at Chaotic Brewing or DYS Forum. In addition, we are in need of volunteers for staffing, judging, stewarding, and / or cooking.

Yeastmeister did a presentation on Food Grade Plastic. Aleguy had an equipment demo on the zapap lauter tun.

Barley Wine - Unforunately Marcello's was not able to get any Barley Wine so we had to substitute the tasting with Strong Ales, which Marcello’s provided:
Samual Adams – Double Bock (Marcello's)
Samichlaus Classic – Helles Bock (Marcello's)
North Coast Brewing - Old Ale (Marcello's)

Descriptions of all the BJCP beer styles can be found on the BJCP website.
