CVHBC on The Brewing Network

Big thanks to Justin at The Brewing Network for giving the club a mention on his weekly Homebrewing Radio Show. The show airs every Sunday night at 5PM pacific time. Log onto to join in on the fun. This show was specifically about starting and running a homebrew club and it is worth listening to. You can find show archives on the TBN page or on itunes. Click the link below for a short clip where he mentions the club. The funny part is that they think Hisperia is close!!!

April Meeting Finalized

I have confirmed a meeting place for the April Meeting. We will once again be meeting at Vino 100 in Cathedral City. Jim was nice enough to have us back and this meeting is sure to be the best so far. We will be having a BAD BEER TASTING! and this is something you will surely not want to miss. We will have a flight of beers in front of us each with a common off flavor that you will find in homebrews. Become a better taster and a better homebrewer with this knowledge. This will be the last meeting before the Southern California Homebrew Festival so plans will be finalized here. So come out and enjoy the company of other homebrewers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guidelines for Doctoring Beers

For the next meeting we are going to have a bad beer tasting. Here is a list of products to simulate off flavors found in homebrew. Leave a comment if you have any of the ingredients needed to make a batch of bad beer. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have almost everything we need to make each bad beer. I am on the lookout for Banana Extract, Dry Sherry, Vodka and Iso Hop Extract.. Please leave a comment if you can provide any of these flavorings.
