Hello, my name is Bill Harding and I live in Bayville. My wife and I have been home brewing for about 6 months now and just recently brewed our first all grain batch of Hefeweizen. We look forward to meeting other home brewers in the area.

Yeah, we started with an extract kit and caught the home brew bug quickly lol. Since my youngest is now in college we are empty nestors and have brewed something almost every weekend. The first all grain batch is still in Primary, just brewed it last Saturday. Made a few mistakes, like not vorlaufing again after batch sparge (i cought it early and only got a little bit of cloudy wort in the kettle). Also, I should have checked my pre boil volume because i was short about 2 gallons post boil.

About the meeting. I have never attended a brew club meeting before. Should I bring beer? are there dues? special decoder rings or secrete hand shakes? lol Both my wife and I hope to attend next tuesday.

No dues. Bring some beer you made if you want to share it with others and get feedback. The meetings are very easy going we get the structured stuff out of the way and the beginning of the night and the rest is just social time.
