THC Barrel Project

Welcome to the 2015-2016 Tucson Homebrew Club Barrel Project. If you came to our September 2015 meeting you had the privilege of signing up already. If you didn't have a chance, there's still a few spots left. This is basically what the deal is:

We got a red wine barrel that 1055 used to make an awesome saison. Forrest has cared for it, and it's holding water and is ready to be filled with fermented beer to be aged and soured over time. Remember this is an experiment and the barrel will be a living changing thing. 

Here's the recipe everyone should be brewing:
85% Pils
10% Wheat
5% Brewer’s Choice (Whatever you want, have on hand).

OG 1.050
Mash High for a FG of 1.015-1.020
Hops are not required, but if you wish, no More than 10 IBU’s
WLP001- clean fermenting yeast.

If you need an extract recipe, we can send one out. If you don't know how to achieve these numbers ask someone in the club.

-Drop off is at Jon’s House, directions to follow, but it is far eastside. If unable to make drop off talk to us and we can arrange something.

-Drop off November 21st with primary fermented beer.
-Ideal brew date is November 7th (Teach a Friend to homebrew day!).

-Will receive empty carboys back at December meeting
-In return for donating wort members will receive 4 finished 750 mL bottles per 5 gallons donated.

There are only a few sign ups left. So this will be on a first come first serve basis. If those that signed up ahead of you, aren't able to make it, you'll be on reserve.
ASH Oktoberfest / Fall Festival
We are invited to ASH Oktoberfest / Fall Classic Festival!

Also, this is for Tucson Homebrew Club members in good standing only.

Welcome to the official website of the Tucson Homebrew Club. Guests of the site will find plenty of information here about the art and craft of homebrewing and also local and regional beer-oriented events. If you’re interested in brewing your own beer and live in the Tucson area, we’d like to extend an invitation to join us for a monthly club meeting and see what we’re all about. Our club is open to novices, experts, and anyone in between. Our primary goal is to promote the time-honored tradition of brewing beer and share and improve upon our member’s knowledge and appreciation of the brewer’s craft.


We meet the first Tuesday of every month at Dragoon Brewery 7PM - 9PM. We'd love to have you join us.
