Convergent Brewing

Convergent Brewing is a process where a group commits to brewing a single evolving recipe sequentially over an extended period.  Each month a batch of the beer is produced by the current recipe owner(s).  Once the batch is ready for consumption, the current owners would meet with the next-up brewer(s).  They share the beer, the recipe and critique the fruit of their labor.  Finally, they will come forward with a single recommendation regarding how to improve the beer.  The next-up brewer(s) will take ownership of the recipe, implement the changes and brew the next version.

At this point the process repeats itself moving through series of BUZZ brewers with the hope of evolving a fantastic... dare I say PERFECT version of the beer. :) And of course, we all will learn lots about the impact of the recipe revisions along the way.

We expect lots of interesting activities to spring from this (monthly group tasting at meetings, BUZZ judging, submission of final version to competitions, etc.).

Brew, share, evaluate, revise, REPEAT!

About BUZZ:

New to BUZZ? Click here to join!

Brewers United for Zany Zymurgy (BUZZ) is an homebrew club based in Downingtown PA. We meet on the 3rd Monday of every month at 7pm. Join us at our meetings to learn more about brewing; taste & discuss beer, cider, & mead; & hear guest speakers from around the region. Meetings & club events are open to everyone. If you're a homebrewer, or if you're interested in becoming one, come on out to a meeting! You'll find we're all just a bunch of homebrewing beer geeks like you. Current members range from beginners to brewers who have been brewing for decades. Trust us, you'll fit in just fine!

If you'd like to share something you've brewed at a meeting, two 12oz. bottles are usually enough. We also have many mead and cidermakers in the club, so if that's your interest you'll find plenty of folks to share with as well!

If you have any questions, need any assistance, or have a suggestion, feel free to contact the Primary Fermenters here (the club leadership) and we'll get back to you!
