Who Wants To Homebrew For the Public? UPDATED

A friend and I just put our heads together and figured out we need to brew another batch of Christmas beer.

Why not do it during Baltimore Beer Week? Showing off homebrewing to the public?

We've identified Sunday, Oct. 11th as the best date with open time slots and our own availability. We have all the equipment to brew and demonstrate at a remote location, and I would need to buy the malt, hops, etc. anyway. What I would like is either willing participants to help "preach the gospel" of homebrewing to others, help watch the boil, maybe even do a brew themselves, etc. AND/OR a willing and welcoming venue willing to let us set up outside to brew a batch or two of beer, let us use some of their water, etc.

Ideas? Offers of help?

UPDATE: WE have a tentative offer of a downtown location, but a suggestion to move the brew date to the 18th so as not to conflict/distract from the Ravens game........

I'd recommend contacting Ryan Boddy from SoYeahDood.com

Local certified BJCP'er, homebrewer and just recently started up "Baltibrew" - where passionate, local homebrewers meet and share ideas, etc.

Yo, Chodite?

Duuude...........

It's bad form to publicly post anyone's e-mail address to a public forum or blog. I can just see the spammers swarming around it like piranhas already.......

As for a place try Contacting the folks at Maryland Homebrew (http://www.mdhb.com/). They have hosted several homebrewing events.

Also

Try contacting the local clubs (http://www.mdhomebrewers.org/) to see if you could get one, or two of them to do a Baltimore Brew like the AHA Big Brew in May. (Multiple locations in the area one being at Maryland Homebrew)

As for me I'm antisocial so my club is the one on my ipod (http://www.thebrewingnetwork.com) ;-)
