Club Business
We reviewed the recent DYS Club Brew Day (February 25, 2012) at Marcello's. We had a great turn out for the brew day and brewed 2 all-grain recipes (Dark Lager and Hefeweizen) and one extract kit (Brown Ale). We served Rye Ale, Dubbel, Oyster Porter, and Brown Ale, and grilled some Honduran beef with salsa.

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 renewing 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. For volunteering, more information can be found at The 2012 Louisiana Homebrew Clubs Brewing Competition
