Homebrewing or commercially?

The Killarney beer festival at the end of May will have a homebrew demonstration.

I don't know of any actual Killarney homebrewers.

I meant homebrewing. The Killarney beer fest was a bit of a let down I thought, but then I was driving and only tasted one beer. It's strange that out of the whole of Co Kerry there isn't many (if any) homebrewers.

Did you visit us at the brewing demo?
There seemed to be a little interest in this.
2 of us spent the weekend brewing and yapping homebrew.
If you were there, what did you expect from it? What could be done better? Do you want to join in this year?

Sorry John I thought I had replied to this. My message never sent for some reason.

Yes I did visit you guys last year. If my memory is correct you were part of the national homebrew club and were set up in the same tent as Tom Crean's. I had a chat for a while and also got to taste Tom Crean's lager for the first time.

It's hard to say what would be exciting about a 6 hr brew session to a non brewer. If they sat through the whole process from set up through to the end of the boil it would probably seem like too much hard work and scare them off. :lol: It's not until you can sit down after a hard day and crack open a bottle of your own brew with friends,family or a good book
Malt: A practical guide from field to brew house by John Mallett is my current read.

I'll definitely attend the beerfest again this year but it's hard to say exactly what day or days due to other commitments.

Is there any plans to include a homebrew competition as well as the competition for the commercial breweries?
