ALL MEMBERS, Please review

Hello CHAOS!

Attached is our new brewer checkout sheet that all new brewer-level members will need to complete to get 24/7 access to our Brewhouse. Standardization is a critical part of keeping CHAOS running smoothly - but more importantly safely.

Make Reservations in our system if you are brewing, bottling...

Just a heads up to anyone wanting to bottle/brew at Chaos. You MUST put in a reservation into the system to use a station. Please don’t just stop by randomly to bottle/keg your beers. Last night we had over 13 people trying to keg, brew, and bottle at the same time. That’s unacceptable!

Lager Fridge Reservations

 

Just a friendly reminder that you need to have a reservation in the lager fridge to store a fermenter in there.

I will be doing another purge this afternoon around 2pm. If you haven’t already made a reservation please do so now (Brewhouse > Lager Fridge Reservation).

Oven gas disconnected due to gas leak

I disconnected the oven gas line after detecting a leak - or really an improperly performing burner knob. I smelled gas at the stove despite all knobs being in the off position. To be safe I brought a lighter over a tested each burner and the right-rear burner lit up.
