Invité spécial à notre prochaine rencontre mensuelle | Special guest at our next monthly meeting

English follows

Chers MontreAlers,

Pour bien démarrer la nouvelle année, lors de notre réunion prochaine mensuelle, le 27 janvier prochain à 20:00, nous aurons la chance de recevoir Jean-François Legentil, président et cofondateur de Echo Session Ales, une microbrasserie se spécialisant dans la production de bières faibles en alcool, “sans compromis pour le goût”.

JF viendra nous parler de son expérience de brasseur chez Echo Session Ales et nous présentera quelques trucs et astuces pour réussir à brasser des bières faibles en alcool. L’occasion sera parfaite pour apprendre quels ingrédients sont à favoriser, quels aspects du brassage doivent être ajustés et quels sont les pièges à éviter.

Et si l’aventure vous en dit, nous organiserons ultérieurement un échange de bouteilles sous le thème des bières faibles en alcool, afin de mettre en pratique les enseignements de JF et discuter de notre expérience personnelle.

À bientôt !

Éducateur en chef autoproclamé des MontreAlers

Dear MontreAlers,

To kick off the new year, at our monthly meeting on January 27th (20:00), we’ll have the pleasure to welcome Jean-François Legentil, president and co-founder of Echo Session Ales, a microbrewery specializing in the production of low alcohol beers, “without compromising on taste”.

JF will talk to us about his experience as brewer at Echo Session Ales and will share some tips and tricks in order to succeed in making great low alcohol beers. The event will be a perfect opportunity to learn which ingredients to favour, what aspects of the brewing process need to be tweaked and what are the pitfalls to avoid.

And if you’re feeling adventurous, we’ll be hosting a bottle exchange on the topic of low alcohol beers at a later date to put JF’s teachings into practice and discuss our personal experiences.

See you soon!

Self-proclaimed MontreAlers’ Chief Educator

Sounds great! Thanks Norm!

I found myself wanting to buy a couple beers to drink alongside the talk, and went looking for where to find some Echo Session Ales. Here is the link if anyone is like me and interested

Est-ce que la rencontre sera enregistré? Je ne suis pas certain de pouvoir y assister et le sujet m’intéresse. Je serais bien heureux de pouvoir la voir plus tard si je ne peux pas y être!

Yes, as long as Jean-François is ok with it, I’ll do my best to get it recorded.

Oui, si Jean-François est d’accord, je ferai de mon mieux pour l’enregistrer.

I just sent a message to ask him whether he’d be fine if we record his presentation.

Update: no problem on JF’s side about recording the presentation.

Thanks for organizing this. It’s always nice to talk with a homebrewer who has gone “go pro” and see he has found some success. His love and passion of brewing is infectious. :slight_smile:

Xavier: Chit Malt, not Shit Malt. :slight_smile:



Is the recording of the presentation available? I missed the first part.

Also to anyone interested in some session beer recipes (and a bunch of other weird and wild stuff), I recommend Speed Brewing by Mary Izett.

It will be my goal for tonight

I apologize for the audio quality. I’ll see what I can do to fix it and get it posted to the main site.


Thanks Sam!

Sound is not that bad. We can hear very well what is said and that’s the important!
