Homebrew Season Has Arrived!
I have been on a homebrew bender the last couple weeks - which may be the only thing that has kept me from going bezerk during the final icy throes of this never-ending winter. But really, spring is one of my favorite times to brew and the temperatures are optimal for lagering (for those of us with basic setups). Spending my St. Paddy’s day indoors and bottling my Irish red was the perfect way to spend the holiday, and avoid the leprechaun crowd.
Since the time is right for firing up our brew kettles, I am also excited to announce that we at Toronto Beer Week are gearing up for our 2013 edition of the Homebrew Contest! Although entries won’t be accepted until May 1st, it’s the perfect time to start planning your recipes and stockpiling ingredients. More information on the contest can be found here, and you can keep checking our twitter feed @torontobeerweek, Facebook page, and website for more info as it comes down the pipe.
