Sure. I think it would be fun to hear about what our semi-random collection of brewers is up to and have the chance to share what we are doing in person. Nothing like an hb club but more of a way to celebrate each group buy.

Hopefully I'll be certified come June, so I'd love to help judge.

Brewed my first batch with bulk grains yesterday! Even having to go buy yeast, the batch only cost a little over $10, and it's a 7.5% IPA.

I can't wait for the hops buy!

It may be possible to get batches down to under $5 if you use washed yeast.

Are you people using sticks and leaves for fire? I use $3 in propane for each batch!

I brewed on the stove. I don't usually count fuel cost. When I do brew outside, it uses a fair amount of propane, probably about what you stated.
