Nice, I know another brewer from Oakdale. he has been super helpful. Have you gone to any of the Modesto Mashers meetings? Do you get any of your supplies from Barley and Wine?

Would you be talking about Dano? Dude is bomb. He came to my last brew day and we enjoyed some awesome beer.

I get all my stuff from Barley and Wine, when possible. The guys there are REALLY cool. Last time I went, he had a Pliny clone in the keg and offered me a sample. So awesome. Great place to go and talk about techniques and equipment. I don't agree with everything they promote or say, but it's a great place to get stuff.

Oh, and I've never been much for meetings or dues. lol. So I was never interested in joining the Modesto Mashers. I do know that my Crazy Hamish Scotch Ale beat all of their offerings at the 2008 Hops and Bangers homebrew competition.

In fact, when Dano showed up at my house last brew day, we started talking, I mentioned Hops and Bangers, and he remembered exactly who I was, and remembered the beer I brewed. I was definitely flattered.

Honestly, I could have posted exactly that same thing. Yes Dano, he is super nice and helpful, Barley and Wine is awesome too Steven is really nice and helpful too, for my first brew I annoyed him with tons of questions, and he had me try the Pliny clone too, really good.

We should get together for a brew day sometime, I know oakdale is kind of far but eh well. I am about to make the jump to all grain this weekend.

I'd come to your brew day if I wasn't brewing the first batch of my Covenantal Coffee Ale, myself. I'll let you know when my next one after this Saturday is, and keep me posted. If I can make it to a brew day of yours, I totally will. Lathrop isn't far at all. I'll hop on the motorcycle and head over. Heck, I'll get in touch with Dano and see if he's down, and maybe we'll both show up bearing beer.

Sounds good, I have a Mirror Pond Clone planned for this Sunday and the probably 2 weeks after that I will be making a Stout for my brother.
