Just as a reminder to all of us club members that are interested in brewing at Old Ox for either One Off Wednesdays (OOW) or lining up for next year’s ACBW beers. Our arrangement with Old Ox to be able to brew there is as follows:
They trust us to enforce that we brew with someone that has already been “checked-out” at Old Ox. You may know how to brew, but you likely do not know the brewery rules on chemicals, electric, gas bottles, water, ingredients, … So, if you are scheduling a brew, make sure you involve one from the following list prior to any coordination:
Carl H., Eammon B., Brent J., Andy L., Webster A., and our newest brewing buddy Mark G.
Please coordinate your proposed brewing schedule with Carl H. and not directly with Old Ox. We do not want 17 different people all coordinating with Chris and Allison. This helps us keep it all square with them.
If you schedule a brew, also coordinate ahead for ingredient access (super sack requires them to fork lift) or that they will approve your receipts for reimbursement. You can again coordinate this through Carl H. Remember, they provide or reimburse for all of your needs, you should not be providing any of it out of your own pocket.
Always remember that it is a privilege to be able to brew there and as a club, we expect that you will leave the brew pad/equipment much cleaner than when you arrived
I am posting this also to try to encourage our members to sign up and brew. Hopefully knowing specifically who to talk with and what we expect will enable some of you to step into a brew session. We should be doing many more One-off Wednesday offerings than we are. This is a great opportunity that Old Ox gives us, take advantage!
