  1. Wes here...our last name is Davis, but we had a blast doing the Rockit cup, and I am glad Matt and I were able to convince you to do a March one as well. We will both be brewing it this weekend. Can't wait 'til the next meeting to try everyone's out. Until then, I have about 4 more gallons of my 9th place mild to drink. Cheers!

  2. Remember, your 9th place mild is still far better than all the other clowns who didn’t brew.

  3. Belgian Pale Ale hit the primary fermenter @8pm last night. Yeasties, start your engines!
