    • The brewery has been nice enough to offer a wort share for those who are unable to brew or would like to pick up some extra wort. I will let everyone know the date for pickup. It will be 88% roughly 2-row, 4% crystal 77, and 8% rolled oats. Obviously feel free to add specialty grains afterward. I will be sending out registration forms in a week or so. I think that gives everyone time to figure out what they’re bringing.
