If a hoped-for job offer comes through, I might be moving to Calgary. But nobody from Calgary has responded yet...

Watch out... taxes are very high up here and cost of living is as bad or worse than even LA.... Then you can not get good access to parts or good beer!

I am an X Newport Beacher who lives north of Toronto by 1 hour. This place makes SOCAL look cost effective...

I'm an A.G. brewer from Chilliwack BC where hops were grown commercially for over 100 years! Still "wild" hops growing in the blackberries on the edges of the former hop fields but no one knows what varietals they are. I've been AG brewing most of this year and before that was doing Coopers/ Brewhouse kits since 2006. I use a 50 and 20litre SS pots, homemade 48qt Coleman cooler mashtun with custom SS false bottom and 70,000BTU propane burner. I only bottle so far but I'm happy with that.

...to all the Vancouver area brewers, checkout the vanbrewers homebrew club (if you haven't already). A great way to meet other homebrewers, try what other people are brewing and get in on bulk grain and hop buys that can get almost anything (a must if you want to brew something british and don't want to use gambrinus esb and domestic goldings)

Kamloops BC here. Mini mash on the stove, but asking for a turkey fryer for Christmas to make the switch to all grain. Been brewing about 1 year.

Am from Vancouver and pretty new to HBT. Also fairly new to home brewing. Started 7 months ago with kits (tried Coopers ESB and then Barons IPA). Found both lacking something (eg body). So moved into malt extract (amber ale and then an IPA, both dry-hopped). Still wasn't satisfied. So am now on my 3rd batch of all-grain (have a Nut Brown in secondary) after doing 2 pale ales, both with the same grain bill & hop schedule, but dabbling in water chemistry and changing yeasts. Results are improving... but my efficiencies are a bit low.
Invested in Beersmith last week (bad timing on my part since it's on sale this weekend), but I think it'll help me out a bunch. Now am just waiting to free up my gear to brew another batch.

Before messing with the near perfect vancouver water read this http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f128/brewing-water-chemistry-primer-198460/ It discusses brewing with RO water which is essentially what comes out of our taps here. Most of what is written in homebrew books deals with the hard water that plagues most north american brewers and doesn't apply to us.
