Default Who is brewing on Long Island?

Aside from me of course..

I figured it might be good to know a few brewers on the island so I started this thread. I'm in western suffolk, brew IPAs almost exclusively and have only been brewing about a year, but have about a 15 batches under my belt. Recently went all grain and have been having a blast. I usually hit Karps although my one time at Arbor was great and the woman there was very helpful.

Nice man! I'm only about a year ahead in the addiction.

I'm in Port Jefferson. We have Brewtopia just down the street and they are developing into a very nice little LHBS + very interesting selection of craft beer. Next door is Port Jeff Brewery so quite convenient to get a growler fill when you stock up on other supplies needed for that big brew day.

I'm about 9 months into the obsession and also went AG recently. I've got 10 gallons of imperial IPA and 5 gallons of black rye IPA in fermentors now, getting ready to do a dark wheat beer this weekend.

Grew up on Long Island (Sayville). Up in CT now. My family still lives down there, and I come down frequently. That's awesome that they opened a LHBS in downtown Port Jeff. I'll have to stop by the next time I take the ferry across.

eric.. i just did a black rye IPA (Firestone Walker Wookey Jack) clone myself.. I was so impressed by the hydrometer sample that I decided to go back to back and brew another 5 gallons that is fermenting away. What was the IIPA you did? Clone or an original?

I've never actually been to PJ brewery although I know someone who works there... been meaning to check it out.

Mine is also a Wookey clone. I tweaked the recipe some, think added about 1.5 lbs sugar aiming to dry it a bit more. Mine is coming up on 3 weeks in primary now, will dry hop soon, get a gravity sample and taste at same time. Trying to be patient...

Port Jeff makes some excellent beers. My fav is Low Tide Black IPA. I'm trying to clone that one too!

I'm in Manhasset. I've been brewing for about 4 years now, with 1 year of all grain under my belt. I've been focused just on ales so far, but I'm hoping to brew a few lagers soon. Styles vary depending on the season. I currently have a dry irish stout that is sitting on beer gas and will be ready for St. Patrick's Day, NB's bourbon barrel porter (fermenting), and Pliny (next on deck).

Anyone recommend a good lager recipe?

LOL I did the same thing when I set up my temp controlled fridge. Maserati an Oktoberfest. Was good but that damn lager took over my fermentation space for a long time. Now I keep it at either 64 or 68 and brew ale. On I mean 18 or 20 cause it only does C...
