Education Session – Liquid:Grain ratio

Watch in utter amazement as Kurtz shows you bottles with cracked grain and water in them.
We will discuss L:G ratio and why it is important, then wonder why anecdotal and even controlled experiments (based only on taste) show that it may not be.
We will feel at one with the cherry blossoms of Japan that started a bit early this year and contemplate the whole not just pick the blossoms out that fit. We will discuss, time permitting exactly what you feel no-sparge is all about and have a brief look at George Fix’s observations.

Prizes, prizes, prizes!

As usual, there will be a range of swag up for grabs at the raffle and earn NOOKIE at the same time.
More details to come.
