Lady Falcon Brew Day 2016

Get ready for a very special Maltose Falcons event - the Annual Ladies Brew Session on Sunday, May 15th!! 

Falcons former Prez and current Member at Large Nancy Gold & Activities Director Tiffany Ashrafi will lead an all-women brew crew in making a Firestone Union Jack Clone - Nancy is known for her expertise in brewing IPAs (and Tiffany really enjoys drinking them).

There are 7 spots on the brew crew, including the 2 crew leaders, but we encourage all of the female members of the club to join this fun brew day to celebrate the few, the proud, the female homebrewers of the Maltose Falcons! We will be inviting some women who are in the LA beer world to hang out and share beers. (Male members - please do NOT sign up for this event. If you do, I will have to boot you from the list. You're welcome to come visit, just not be on the brew crew).

Sunday, May 15th
8:00 am
Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop
22836 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills

All Brew Crew members will be brewing on the Falcons' 40-gallon all-grain brew system at the shop. Crew members will participate in all aspects of the brewing process from measuring and crushing the grain to clean up and fermentation. Each participant will pitch in for the cost of ingredients (usually $10-$15), and take 5 gallons of wort to ferment at home. So it's very economical and a great opportunity to get some hands-on brewing experience on a larger, more sophisticated brewing system than most homebrewers have access to, learn new recipes, and, of course, a chance to hang out with your fellow Falcons and share brews and snacks. Remember to bring some cash for your share of the ingredients and a carboy or a bucket for your wort. 
To participate, you must be an up-to-date, dues-paid Maltose Falcons member. Your membership status will be verified prior to your spot being confirmed on the brew crew. You must sign up here by clicking the "Sign up for March Club Shop Brew" link below. Please email Matt Myerhoff your FULL NAME and CELL PHONE NUMBER at publicity@maltosefalcons.com so we can confirm your membership and contact you if there is any problems with your membership or with the brew day itself. No exceptions.
We welcome new members, or members who have not yet been on a Brew Crew, to sign up for this event. If you have been on a Brew Crew within the past 3 months, you are not eligible to be on this crew unless spots are left empty by brew day. Signups are at the end of this event posting. No sign ups will be accepted via the yahoogroups or email to the crew leader or the publicity director. There are only 7 spots on the Crew, including the 2 crew leaders, since we're setting aside a Falcon's share for the club's events. Please volunteer to babysit the Falcon's share! 
Signups are on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the crew is filled, there may be a waiting list in case a crew member can't make it on brew day. Brew Crew Members, please arrive on time and be prepared to stay until brew day is over, which includes cleaning and stowing all equipment, utensils, work area, and classroom. That may be after 4:00 pm.
Of course anyone who is interested in observing the all-grain brewing process is welcome to come by the shop to hang out and chat with the Crew. Beer and snacks to share are always welcome.
