Present: Rocky Stoltz, Jerry Ford, Ryan Jilek, Chip Ford and Jon Stika.

Rocky reported on the ND Brewers campout at Sully Creek State Park.  Rocky provided a Treasurer’s report.  Sampled Brown Ale from the barrel.  The sourness has mellowed, a slight vanilla/oak flavor is present, malt flavor medium/low and body is a bit thin.  Overall the beer is taking on the characteristics of an Oud Bruin or Flanders Red.  It was decided to allow the beer to age further.  The K of C Beer Taste is scheduled for September 12th as a  BJCP sanctioned competition.  Also discussed production and logistics for filling second wine barrel with Scotch Strong Ale.
