Cool... another homebrewer in Seaford. PWM74, where are you? I am between Merrick Rd & Sunrise Hwy and Washington & Jackson Avenues.

I was displaced by Sandy so I am living back with my folks and that has put my brewing on hold even though my father has a nice wine cellar that I could use. All of my equipment is in storage until I get the hell out of here. Fortunately, I am moving to Farmingdale on March 1.

I have gone to a few of the meetings for the Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts club but haven't been to one in several months. Pretty cool group.

When and where do they meet? I was going to check out B.E.E.R. but have a standing conflict on Mondays.

Their meetings are the first Wednesday of the month and they move around as far as where they meet, I've been to meetings in Patchogue and Massapequa.

Their website: beermalt.org doesn't seem to be up right now but that's where I usually find out where the next meeting is.

Well, I guess I'll add in my two cents. Been brewing again for about two and a half years. Started out with Mr. Beer and am doing partial mash kits from AHS. I've only done ales but a lot of them. Stouts, choc stouts, porters, IPAs, APAs, brown ales, etc., about 260 gals so far. Slowed down due to Sandy/snow storm. I live in Miller Place. I'm a member of BEER, but because I work a rotating shift and have a side business, I usually don't have the time to attend meetings. Going to be heading to the spring beer fest at Nassau Col next month when my co-worker gets back from deployment. Went last year and had a great time. Also went to Martha Clara also very good. I can tell you more about the beers I had at the beginning than those at the end. We rented a van (and driver) to get us there and back.

Hey almost neighbors!

Brewtopia (port Jefferson) starting up an informal, lets get together and taste some home brews, on first Tuesdays of the month. I missed the first one but am planning to make it next month. Also have a judged brewing contest in the works. Pretty low key but looks to be fun.

Will you let temp increase as it ferments or control temp? Sounds like you are planning to control.

No, I'm just gonna let it ride along with at the ambient temperature in my house, If it's something that comes out good and worth doing again, I'll ferment with the heater belt on and see if it gets funked a bit.
