Default Anybody brewing in the Los Angeles Area?

Well am just getting start in this wonderful and kick ass hobby and i was wondering if there was more people brewing near my area? I live in the city of South Gate near Downtown L.A. I thought i would just be cool just to shoot the sh*t with some fellow brewers in my area since i seem to be boring the wife with all my brew talk

hello bratrules. I'm from Atwater Village which is next to Glendale. Good to hear from a new LA brewer. Are you doing extract or AG?

The Maltose Falcons are a quite large and semi-famous group of homebrewers down there.

I do 5 gal. AG using batch sparge method. I'm looking to upgrade to a 10 gal. HERMS system in the near future when money is available.

Maltose is the grand daddy of homebrewer club. There's also Pacific Gravity in Culver City but I've heard that they're more so of a beer appreciation club than a brewer club. You can also check out eastsidebrew.com which just started recently.

Seems like many ladies like fruity beer and Ed Wort's apfeiwein. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f81/edworts-apfelwein-33986/ so maybe you can try that.

You probably know this already. When doing AG make sure to get a good grain crush and hit all your temperatures right. A brewing software will help out with the calculations and equipment calibration. Good luck!
