Default NOVA club

We can establish a local either formal or informal club. There is BURP which has members from MD/VA/DC and has rotating meeting locations once a month with lots of food and home brew, which I belong to. Only real drawback is getting home after having a few. There is a smaller club out of Herndon area called the Warthogs. Both are formal and have officers and dues. But that is down the road a bit.

Someone needs to organize an initial get together to gauge the real interest. Again, Wedneday evening at Cock and Bowl, Occoquan.

When we talked I mentioned I'd drop back by in a month or so to discuss it further.
Derek seems excited about the possibilities -- I'd be surprised if he wasn't interested in the concept! Just trying to put it out there that you guys could make some headway on the legwork/continue to get buy-in/gauge interest now.

PM me your email address if you want to attend an informal meeting. I will find a venue and sent out an invitation of some sort as well as post here. Even if it to just lay down some ground work.

Well my grain bill for my Rye IPA isn't in yet so that's not happening. I'll still be brewing but at this point I'm trying to decide between my DFH 60 clone recipe or trying the Oberon Clone (decoction recipe here).

I really want more of the DFH 60 on tap but am really hesitant to use so much Simcoe/Amarillo as my stock is at about 1/3 lb. and that stuff is gone for the year.

If anyone wants to brew Saturday in Manassas let me know

Damn it...wish I had seen this. I am interested in getting as much "brew experience" as possible. I went in and chatted with Derek this week, bought all my brew equipment and can't wait to get started. Only been a part of brews through different friends and now I'm getting into it.

I just threw this stir-plate together with some stuff I had and some Radioshack parts. I want to use a yeast starter right off the bat to make sure I'm getting good fermentation.

Man... I never actually got around to doing it either. After all my running around Saturday, including a trip into Jay's to get some specialty grains, I realized I was 1# short on white wheat. I was dragging my 3 kids with me and didn't feel like repeating the experience.

I was thinking of doing it one evening this week.

Welcome! Nice work on the stir plate.

Same thing here. Except for Tuesday it looks like we'll have great brewing weather this week. It's hell getting caught up when your pipeline goes dry.

I'm looking to probably get a yeast starter going on Thursday in order to brew on Saturday sometime. My first batch at home!

If your interested in a Manassas/Bristow homebrew club, PM me your email address. I am pretty close to getting things together but it would certainly help with more interested participants. 100th post. Rock on!

I was in Jay's for about 30-40 minutes on Saturday and saw someone picking up a really nice brewing starter kit. You said you got yours there Sat? Was that by chance you?

I'm thinking of doing my Oberon this evening. I need to start by 4:30 to be done in enough time to clean up for the evening.

I'm also going to brew on Saturday, Probably some form of a Citra or Simcoe IPA.
