Recipe: Bia-Hoi by Chi-Linh Dinh
This year's recipe, now available in the club recipe database, is Chi-Llinh Dinh's "Bia Hoi" (Vietnamese for 'fresh beer'). Chi created this recipe to emulate the type of beer her father and his friends used to drink back home in Vietnam! It's a light (about 4% ABV), refreshing lager that's meant to be drank very fresh once it's fermented!
If you are indeed brewing that day, please take some pictures and share it with our community and beyond by tagging GTA Brews and #CanadianHomebrewDay in your posts!
Recipe #2: Betty Blonde by Barley's Homebrew Supplies
Barley's Homebrew Supplies from New Westminster, BC was voted as Canadian Homebrew Shop of the year for 2021. To celebrate CHD 2022, owner Curtis supplied his favourite Blond Ale recipe for us to brew!
Yet again our annual Canadian Homebrew Day (CHD) tradition of running Learn2Brew has been cancelled due to COVID-19. But CHD is about much more than just running L2B, and COVID-19 sure won't stop us! CHD is an opportunity to take a moment out of what has been a hectic 12+ months for all of us an enjoy our hobby and craft. Similar to last year, we've organized a virtual brewing session on Zoom:
If you're free, get a brew going and join us on Zoom to talk all things brewing and some regular old banter. If you're looking for something to brew, there are a few official Canadian Homebrew Day recipes from our friends at the Canadian Homebrewers Association:
Due to COVID-19, our annual Canadian Homebrew Day tradition of running Learn2Brew has been cancelled. We still wanted to celebrate Canadian Homebrew Day, so we're excited to announce we've organized a virtual group brew session on Zoom!
Note: This will take the place of our June club meeting
Hosts: David Chang-Sang and Eric Cousineau will be hosting the virtual brew session
David will be brewing a Munich Dunkel
Eric will be catching up on bottling some mead and kegging some beers
We were pleased to see lots of interest when we shared the plan on our Facebook Discussion Group a few days ago. We're expecting at least 5 others to join the virtual brew session while brewing, so this will be a sort of virtual Learn2Brew!
