Yes, we are have a brew day on November 3, 2012 for Learn to Homebrew Day at Marcello’s (10AM). We will be doing an all grain and extract brew. Anyone is welcome to come and brew too. There will be some Pumpkin Ale and I'm sure some other beer. More club details can be found at: Learn to Homebrew Day.

Club bulk grain buy is closed and grain is on the way. Those that ordered should have brought cash to the meeting or when they pick up there grain.

The Roberts Cove Germanfest Homebrew Competition is looking for individuals to help with judging this Thursday and Friday night. Those interested should contact jimboud

thebuddrik took a count of how many were interested in trying a beer from Zambia. I think it is Chibuku Shake Shake or something similar. He plans on being back from Zambia in time for the November meeting.

Somethings we may have forgot to mention:
It is that time of the year again, and the club is taking nominations for elected offices, which will be probably be voted on by the club members attending the January meeting.
