One Beer – Ten Yeasts

It’s pretty obvious that different yeasts will impart different flavors, but unless you have the same exact baseline, it’s a little hard to compare. For our April meeting, we’ll be conducting an experiment, and you’re more than welcome to join in.

We will be brewing up a 10-gallon batch of beer and splitting it into 1-gallon batches, each with a different yeast. Once the beer is all done and bottled, we’ll gather to sample exactly how each yeast imparts its own signature. If you have a request for a specific yeast, post it here. And if you want to take one of the gallons home to care for it, then please come to the meeting. It should be a great learning experience for all.

Check the bottom of the post for the location and other details.

JCBC Walking Tour – March 30th!

Our next walking tour is March 30th! Please share this with all your friends and family to help spread the word. It’s a great fundraiser for the group and a fantastic way to support your local brewers! We’ll be visiting brewers in Hoboken and Jersey City to check out their setups, discuss their craft, and of course, drink some delicious homebrews.

The AHA Conference is coming to the East Coast!

The American Homebrewers’ Association (AHA) National Homebrewers Conference is in Philadelphia this year, June 27-29. This is the first time it’s on the East Coast. I know people who have been previous years, and they said it was a fun time. There’s seminars, an expo, a banquet and a homebrewers club night, where clubs from around the country have tables and share their beer.


The details are all at the AHA website . If you want to go by yourself or with the club, act soon, as it fills up quickly, as does the hotel. Attendance all three days is certainly not necessary. Friday night is the club night.

Thanks to Keith for the post info.

About the Jersey City Brew Club

The JCBC was started in the fall of 2010 with a small group of brewers meeting at Iron Monkey in Downtown Jersey City. What started as a few guys brewing and drinking in a kitchen has grown into a great club with dozens of homebrewers from Hudson and Essex Counties, and even more brew-drinkers.

If you’re a beer enthusiast, are interested in learning how to brew, or already brew and want to meet like-minded people, attend one of our events sometime. We host brew tours, contests, and parties, as well as group brews, where we brew and learn together. Or just come out to our next¬†meeting, usually hosted at Barcade on the third Wednesday of each month.
