Yeast Experiment Taste Off

  • 11/10/2012
  • 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Hollywood Senior Center
On September 27th, the OBC partnered with Breakside Brewery and Wyeast to perform a yeast experiment. Breakside brewed about 50 gallons of a Belgian Pale as a base and Wyeast provided 10 different yeast strains for the experiment. The wort and yeast strains were then divided among ten
different OBC members in a blind distribution for fermentation.

The beer is now here. All members are invited to attend an open house to sample the results of the experiment. Come out and taste various yeast strains in a side-by-side comparison and find out for yourself whether or not there is a difference. We want to know who can figure out which strains were actually used - you could win FANTASTIC prizes of questionable
value if you are successful.

Mark your calendars for the great unveiling and tasting of the resulting beers. The open house will be on November 10th at the Hollywood Senior Center located at 1820 NE 40th Ave (just north of Columbia River Brewing) from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. There is FREE street parking available near the Center. The lot adjacent to the building on the east is a pay lot - you must pay to park there or you will get a ticket. If you have any questions regarding the open house or the experiment, please email Brian.

Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.


Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!


Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org


Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
