The ABV was 5.8% and a British style IPA.  The beer was very strong but all too easy to drink

Beer was saved for Matt Willars.
 Louis Balodis would be invited to come and drink some of the left overs (six people would struggle to drink 40 pints at that strength).

It was agreed to try and recruit more members for BAD TNG.


Symposium 11/05/13

1. Attendance
Nicky Hartwell, Lavin, Dom Palmer, Chris Willars and Joanne Willars.

Apologies
Louis Balodis and Matt Willars.

2. The Beer
The beer was based on a recipe for Courage Directors.


The brewing had gone well but the keg had sprung a leak.  This may have happened before with that particular keg but this brew was under quite a good pressure and we therefore lost at least two thirds of our beer.  The fact that we had only 5 people there meant that we got two or three pints each.


The ABV was 5% and a good solid best bitter.  Our version was smoother and less fizzy than the filtered bottle we had for comparison. The pressure lasted until we were draining the last pint.

A bottle was saved for Louis Balodis and Matt Willars.


3. Collection of Money
All money was collected and will be paid to the overall BAD funds.

4. Location of Next Symposium
The next symposium would be at Dom Palmer's house.

5. The Next Brew
The next brew would be decided by Dom. 

6. Date of Next Symposium
The symposium would be held on Sunday 18 August 2013 subject to confirmation.

Brewing would take place on  Saturday 6 July 2013 at Dom Palmer's house.

7. Any Other Business
The first BAD TNG was declared a success by those that made it.  Although numbers were a little on the small size it was felt that we did not have to grow too much more to become a full group.


The keg will be stripped for parts and disposed of so that we don't have the same problems again.
