April 19th - Green Room “Wort-Share” Brewday - 4/19 (Setup at 9am, wort ready by 11:30am)
Eric Luman, head brewer at Green Room Brewery, has offered CASK a unique competition opportunity. He will be providing a base malt unhopped wort that members will be required to use as part of their recipe for June's Interklub Competition. The cost for the wort is $15 / 5-gal (100% Pilsner base w/ OG 1.048).

Members can either brew at Green Room or pick up their wort and complete their brew at home. What are you going to do with your wort??? Brew a Belgian Stout? Perhaps an Imperial IPA? ........BE CREATIVE!!!
