This is posted on the FB page as well.

If anyone is interested, I want to start a series of 1 gallon batch brewing experiments to share at the monthly meetings.

Why 1 gallon batches? They are fast, fun, cheap, and there will be enough to share. If it is great you can brew a big batch later, or if it tastes like ass there isn't much to dump.

In June I made beer made with Dr. Pepper that actually tasted a lot better than what most people thought.

There may be time yet to brew for the July meeting which is making an APA with a lager strain at ale temperatures. I've made a split batch with lager yeast and ale yeast to compare.

The August small batch brewing challenge: design a beer around a box of cereal. You can also use said cereal in your beer if you choose.

This can be anything you want. Rice Krispies in a lager, Reece's Puffs peanut butter porter, Count Chocula stout, Honey Crisp honey wheat ale, etc.

Happy brewing!

I really like this idea, but I think it might work better as a quarterly thing rather than monthly. Just my thoughts. I may try something for August though.
