Canadian Roll Call!!
 
I searched around and couldn't find a thread like this so I guess I'll get the ball rolling!

Just drop in say hi, say where you're from, that way we can more easily find people close to us!


A little about me, I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba...home to the longest Grey cup winning drought and the Jets!! I just started brewing, on my second batch, I messed up my first pretty bad...can't wait for the second batch to be ready! I'm looking for the go to place for beer supplies here in the peg, If anyone can help out that would be awesome!

I'm in the Brandon area now, but for Winnipeg, Grape and Grain on Osborne. it's co-located with Game Knight Games, so don't walk away if you spot the geeky game store, just go in the door and to the left. Grains are in a separate room in the basement.

Prices are fantastic by prairie standards, especially for all-grain supplies, and they carry locally malted pale malt and locally grown hops.

Reporting!!!
 
Hey everyone!

Just joined today, been brewing in Winnipeg (and the Whiteshell) for about ten years.

I do mostly extract brewing, but don't look askew at the occasional all-grain batch with friends to help.

My ultimate goal - get my hands on some MB grown barley and wheat, malt it, boil it with hops from my backyard, and find out what this province really tastes like!

I would love to do that as well, just have to get a few extract beers to turn out first!
Luxalune is doing that on a bigger scale, they have their Farmery beer, it's a locally grown and brewed beer from their estate brewery that they make themselves to serve at their bar.

My wife is from North Dakota which makes me like 80% Canadian...

AG brewer from Surrey BC here.

Started with extract about five years ago. Made the switch only when the owner of my LHBS, Dan Small (Dan's Homebrewing in Vancouver) 'refused' (lol) to sell me any more extract. That was about three years ago and I'm glad he did.

I'm running a direct fire keggle based 5 gal. rig with a Brewers Hardware RIMS tube run by a Brewtroller 4.0. Had it all automated with seven valves until I figured out that AMP connectors are not splash proof. Had to strip it back to switching hoses until I replace them. Pretty mad I was so short sighted. It was no fun trying to brew with random valves opening and closing...

I built a four tap keg-o-rator and have nine cornies. Five primaries keep the pipeline flowing. I try to brew at least once a week as my buddies and I go through an alarming amount of beer. Current house fave is a Belgian Quad modeled on Rochefort 10. Still not a clone but getting closer.

Cheers!

Have you tried Farmery? They're sold out every time I'm there...if you've had it, how is it?

I'm drying my fourth pound of malt right now!
