  • Kyle Landrow gave a very informative presentation on his SABCO Brew Magic V350MS RIM brewing system.  Some of the positives of the system were the Vorlauf pump with water heater, tri-clamps, easy to clean, and pre-program brew schedules.  The negatives to the system where it is clunky, the temperature sensor placement is not great, ball value clogs during lautering, and the tubing is not insulated.  See the video he presented at
  • January Monthly Beer Competition Winner was Dark Skies (Vanilla Bourbon Imperial Stout) brewed by Peter Roberts.
