If anyone's looking for a homebrew club in the North Kent area I can highly recommend https://nofrillsjoe.co.uk/pages/home-brew-club.

I didn't think there were any clubs in this part of the world, but I've been going for the last 6 months after hearing about it from a fellow forumite.

It's not very well publicised but like the website says its a monthly meeting hosted by the small No Frills Joe Brewery in Northfleet - in between Dartford & Gravesend, close to Bluewater, short walk from Swanscombe station.

Its an informal affair where we generally just try each other's beers (and the latest offering from the brewery), give feedback and chat beer.

The owner/brewer, Jack, is a very knowledgable ex-homebrewer and the crowd is a friendly bunch making an amazingly diverse range of beers, but we could do with a few more enthusiastic brewers to get involved.

Not sure if there's a meeting in November as we are going to Brewcon - where we have a table at club night:groupdancing:

But it would be great to see a few new faces in December if any local members are interested? acheers.

The club website page has been updated with a link to the brewery's FB event page where the date for the next meeting will be posted first, but I'll update here when its available.

It's in the diary, see you for some pre Christmas beers
acheers.
Nice one Dave are you taking along any beers? I don't think my Cwtch kit will be at its best yet so I'll save it for the Jan meeting, but I'm keen to get some feedback on my latest hazy IPA before I rebrew for a comp.

Anyone else coming along??

Nice one Gio athumb.. Welcome aboard! Lovely to meet you both last week, and I'm looking forward to trying your Wit.
I'll definitely have my latest attempt at a NEIPA to bring along next time, and maybe one more, if I get permission to brew this weekend.

I'll be along by 7.30 latest with my rather dissappointing neipa and probably the latest user upper brew, which is really just another, slightly less hoppy, hazy ipa with a dash of light crystal :laugh8:
I'm going to brew something different next, promise. wink...

Sounds good to me, be interesting to hear what concoction when into the user upperacheers.. I'm going to bring a Czech dark lager & a Euro Kviek IPA...I'm hoping they will have both carbed up a bit before next week. Lager had very low carbonation a week ago so hopefully another 2 weeks will sort it.
