Club Business
On April 13, 2013, the Dead Yeast Society (DYS) homebrew club will be hosting the 2013 Louisiana Homebrew Club's Brewing Competition. This a great opportunity for the Louisiana homebrew clubs to get together to discuss homebrew, get immediate feedback on our brewing, and get to know each other. The 2013 Louisiana Homebrew Club's Brewing Competition is open to all brewers and follows Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) guidelines. Note that the BJCP guidelines have been modified to accept only the listed categories (1, 10, 12, and 15). The judging and awards will be held on Saturday April 13, 2013 at the Cajun Brewing. The event has been registered with the BJCP and the announcements (details and rules) can be found on the DYS forum and the AHA calendar. In addition, we are in need of volunteers for staffing, judging, stewarding, and / or cooking. For volunteering, more information can be found at 2013 Louisiana Homebrew Club's Brewing Competition
