Now that the guild has a decent bank account and a group of dues paying members it’s time to start rolling out more benefits of membership. First up is purchasing a piece of equipment for the guild to own.

The basic idea is to buy something that not many members would own themselves or would only use infrequently. Voting members could then check out the equipment for personal use. The equipment would also be used for guild events like the big annual meeting or Best of the Bay Homebrew Competition. Guild events would take precedent over personal uses of the equipment.

A few ideas have come up regarding guild equipment:

  • Jockey Box – Great for events where kegged beer is served. We borrowed several for the Best of the Bay Homebrew Competition last Aug. The guild will need a jockey box for the NHC next June.
  • Cider Press – Not many people have them and many would use one if given the chance. This is the cheapest option, Gary Gamel has offered to donate his press to the guild if we were willing to restore it to a working condition.
  • Grain Mill – Most members won’t need to use a mill other than the one at North Corner. For those members who brew large batches or want finer control over the crush a mill is essential.

If you have any ideas about other equipment the guild should buy leave a comment below.  The poll is only open to voting members and will close at the end of November, 2011.

 

Which piece of equipment should the guild buy first?

  • Cider Press (11%, 1 Votes)

  • 2 Counter Pressure Bottle Fillers (0%, 0 Votes)

  1. Some bottle fillers (Blichman or counter pressure) would also be handy things for the club to have.

  2. Excellent idea Justin. I added 2 counter pressure bottle fillers to the poll. If anyone would like to change their votes now that I’ve altered the poll let me know.
