This is pretty cool – Adam at Beer Bits 2 (now an official Friend of Lootcorp!) has started up a new, um, “beer blogging community day” – for lack of a better term… You know, where beer bloggers agree on a topic and all post about it on the same day every month.

We have The Session, started by Stan Hieronymus of Appellation Beer back in early 2007, where all the bloggers post about a particular beer style or beer-related topic on the first Friday of every month. However, Adam thought it would be cool to have a beer-blogging day just for homebrewers and homebrew-related topics, and I couldn’t agree more. He has hereby designated the last Friday of every month “Fermentation Friday”, the homebrew blogging day, and I am happy to say that lootcorp.com has already signed up as a host! Many thanks to Adam for the opportunity!

Now, the bad news…this idea was such a success that the host roster filled up pretty quickly, and I’m going to have to wait until January 30, 2009! So, for now, just mark your calendars, and drop me a comment if you have any suggestions for a good early winter homebrewing topic. In the meantime, I’ll be participating in Fermentation Friday every month – this month it is being hosted by Travis at CNYBrew.com, topic TBA (check out the list of scheduled hosts for future months). I can’t wait!

  1. How about hard cider? I know it’s fairly simple to produce but it appeals to a different crowd and many brewers might be interested. Or maybe just a regular article about spiced cider. I’m going to start a batch fairly soon.

  2. I’m ashamed to say I’ve never made a cider. It’s not that it doesn’t appeal to me, I’ve just never gotten around to it. Scott, have any favorite recipes you’d like to share?

  3. Loot, thanks for the kind words :-)

    I think this will be fun. I’m especially interested to hear different points of view.

    Regarding hard cider and other fermentation activities I’m exploring mead a bit right now. Always learning…

    See you during the final Friday of each month ;-)
