Hello fellow organic home brewer,
Living in what some may call the ‘Mecca’ of home brewing, Denver Colorado, I thought brewing all organic beer would be easy and relatively inexpensive. Unfortunately I was very wrong in assuming both of those assumptions. The biggest frustration as a organic home brewer (in Denver) was that ALL the local Denver area home brew grain supply stores told me that they would NOT carry organic grains. So, what that meant, was that I would have to buy my grains online and have them shipped to me. Buying grains this way is very expensive and impractical, really. There is a much better way we organic home brewers can enjoy the craft of great organic home brew, we just need each others help.
The ‘Organic Home Brewers Association’ has started the ’organic home brewer’s cooperative project’ as it’s main focus. The goal of the organic home brewer’s cooperative project is to untied ‘local’ organic home brewers in creating their own ‘local’ organic home brewing association for the purpose of combining their resources so as to 1.) Get to know other organic home brewers. 2.) Pool resources for the purpose of purchasing organic grains in bulk. 3.) Support organic beer making agriculture and scientific research.
If you're already in a organic home brewing club / community / organization… please contact us hear at the Organic homebrewer’s Association. We would like to hear from your organization and share what your organization is doing, how it did, it with other organic home brewing enthusiasts.
