Yep! That was probably me. I had been pricing out and listing what I wanted from Northern Brewer, but after Derek opened up about a mile from my house I figured I would support the local place. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the total price of everything I snagged.

Simcoe IPA sounds great!

Well the boil is about done on the Oberon clone. If we can get an initial meeting going here in Manassas I have three batches in the pipeline that are almost drinkable

Hi all. I live in the Ashland community off 234 near Montclair. I have brewed a few extracts and am in the process of building an all grain electric setup in my basement. I plan to have a single tier 3 keggle 2 pump system. I just finished my boil keggle and got the electric run. Did a test boil tonight and all ran well. Going for my first biab this weekend. Anyone have a favorite recipe they could suggest?

I like the idea of a local group get together. I plan on attending the BURP meeting this Saturday. I hope to meet some of you guys there.

By the way, were did Jay move his shop to?

Ben

Jay's brewing is now in Manassas. Near downtown Manassas City, just south on Rt 28 (Center Street) across from the Southern States.

I'm definitely brewing an IPA on Saturday morning. While the recipe has yet to be decided it will probably be a DFH 60 clone or similar. I just landed a really nice order of Simcoe and Amarillo and want to use them while they're fresh.

AJS; if you're interested I'm always down for some company while brewing. I noticed you had expressed an interest.

I found Jay's. Nice place. The owner was very helpful. I found a blue moon clone and he helped me with some substitutes. I am going to try my biab setup tonight. I put a bug in his ear about the group.

Hello all. Just thought I would poke my head in and say hi. Just registered today but have been wanting to get into homebrew for some time but didn't really have the space/time needed. I have zero experience besides reading here, on other forums and watching Youtube videos but you have to start somewhere. I'm looking to get started and it looks like I have a ton of stuff I need to pick up, but I can't wait.

Welcome Matt...I'm new to the hobby, just got my first "solo" batch done last night. Definitely learned some tricks the first time around. I had only ever watched and participated with friends before...much different when doing it alone.

I'd definitely suggest going and talking with Derek and checking equipment out in person. If we want a good homebrew shop in the local area we should all try our hardest to support the local place and pump money in there

Not even 24 hours after racking my brew into the primary there are lots of healthy bubbles going on in there and a nice thick foam on top. Hoping to see lots of activity in the airlock tomorrow!

awesome man!! That just looks yummy! Did you start with an extract brew?

Still planning on doing the DFH 60 clone on Saturday.
