Very cool idea. Could you split some into bottles and some into kegs? I think raising money for the club would be ideal, that way we could look at doing more things like this in the future.
Can I throw an Idea out there?Can it be a "Brew Adelaide" beer? "Brewed by the people, for the people"? Can all profits (after breaking even and everyone's been paid) be paid as a donation to Nige, towards his shop and the BA Website?I have nothing bias with SABC, It's all the same people as here, but it was Nige and this forum where SABC has it's roots, and personally, with an opportunity such as this, I would like to give something back to Nige.Be it more traffic\business to his shop, or more members here. I think SABC will benefit as well with this scenario.I would Suggest 330ml bottles so it can be shifted quicker.Is a partygyle an option at all?A 6% IPA sounds good or a Pale ale that's more inviting on the average punters palette.Anyway, just some thoughts.Awesome Idea RK, thanks! Pretty sure it's a goer already
Bottling practicalities...its being bottled by hand. a full days work (and I mean full) could see 150 cartons done. I'd recommend doing as many cartons as possible in a day and leaving the rest to keg. I would also recommend having two/three shifts of bottlers.
My 2c's on this....RK was making the offer to the South Australian Beer Club to which I support. Yes Nige does a fantastic job with this forum, site and services he provides. He is however running a business which most if not all of us support. I have nothing but praise for Nige. We give back to Brew Adelaide by supporting Nige's business and buying from him. I dont understand the need to provide any profits from this to his business.I think making it a SABC brew is a good idea. Cartons are sold at a small profit and to provide some funds to the SABC bank accounts. The SABC committee can then look at membership benefits for the coming financial year and one benefit may be a subsidized SABC carton of beer. This has the potential to be an annual event with a different beer brewed??If Nige would like to charge SABC for use of his forum, then that is a separate matter.Non members can obviously buy the cartons supporting SABC.
