This month we have our own GTA Brews member Matt King joining us, to talk about mead! Join us to hear Matt talk about the different types of mead, what the process looks like, how the fermentation differs from beer, some of his recipes, and more!

As with any conference call, please mute your microphone if you aren't speaking, this really helps cut down on background noise. During Q&A segments we will make use of the "Raise Hand" feature.

Presentation: All About Mead with Matt King

We are excited to have Matt King talk to us about mead-making this month. Matt makes pretty much every kind of fermented beverage there is – beer, wine, mead, cider, and hybrid combos of those. He began brewing in 2018 but learned quickly and during the 2019 BOTY season won multiple medals for his meads (and many for his beer) en route to a 10th place finish. Matt moved north of the GTA last year but remains a loyal club member, and plans to keep attending club meetings/events whenever he can.

Brewery Show/Tell

During our last few meetings, we had several club members show and tell their home brewery spaces. The feedback has been very positive so we want to keep it going! It's a great opportunity to see more of our club members brewing spaces and equipment that we wouldn't normally see in an in person club meeting.

The first 30 minutes of the meeting will be dedicated to this idea! In order to execute this in an orderly fashion, we need people to email us to sign up!

Please email meetings@gtabrews.ca to sign up, or IM David Chang-Sang on Facebook.
