Tuesday Meeting

Dan, Tam and I met today to talk Geekbeer. We went in circles a lot, due to some miscommunication, but oh well - we'll get better :-)

Dan is going to work on brewing plans this week for a 5 gallon homebrew system.

Anyone that wants to join this community is free to (I added a bit about it in the userinfo), but we're gonna make it so that the front page of geekbeer.com will only show our posts... it seems like that makes sense. We'll still have the complete posts available under some discussion section in the website though. Tam's gonna get that going early next week, so until then it'll all show up, which is fine. Eventually, we hope to have some sort of discussion board, categorized in a way so that people can search specific topics and read the threads.

We're all pretty excited that a lot of people have checked out the site, and it definitely makes us want to keep more coming.

Lets get down to brass tacks (how much for the ape?)

So, first post for me, and unfortunately it's going to be of very little substance tonight. It's a bit late and I have to go to work in the morning (too bad beer isn't my sole pursuit quite yet...). Anyways, I'm going to start working on some Beer 101 and Brewing 101 basics tomorrow and start posting in a short series. Also expect to see it up in a prettier layout on the GeekBeer Site who knows, maybe even a handy .pdf file you can download and show your friends!

Ok, enough for tonight, I'll get working tomorrow on the serious brew. Might also post the most recent recipe if demand is high. However, I'm hesitant since it's a de novo recipe and it hasn't finished fermenting to taste yet.
