Default Cheers from Vancouver, WA.

Hello to all you brewers out there!

I have been brewing occasionally off and on for the past 4-5 months and just recently decided that I absolutely love the craft!

So far I have brewed a IIPA (AG), IPA(AG), Raspberry Wheat(AG), ESB(Extract), and helped with a Hazelnut Brown(Extract). All turned out great so far, except the ESB could have been much better if I had made some changes.

Rounding up supplies to do a pumpkin ale (extract) on Saturday.

Am in the process of deciding on which route I would like to take as far as upgrading my equipment over the next 6 months in order to do proper all grain brewing as I only have capability to do extract at home right now.

Anyways, I look forward to reading around and learning as much as I can through the forum! I hope to be able to make some good contributions as the years go by as well.

Cheers!

Welcome! I'm in Vancouver, too. There are a lot of brewers here but I'm not sure how many are on this forum.

I only know of a few people home brewing in vancouver, but then again I have only been in it a short time. I am trying to get more friends and family involved but most of my close friends (local) aren't quite as enthusiastic about beer as I am.

Nor mine. I don't specifically know a lot of brewers, but Bader's seems to do well and I have bought/sold a lot of brew gear on CL in this area and have met some that way. .

Is there a Vanc brew club?

Not that I am aware of. Bader's is usually decently busy when I am in there so it makes sense. But I would assume that is typical of most area's around here.

I know that there are some actual brewpub's/nano-breweries starting to pop up in Vancouver too.

Is there a link to that? Maybe I just can't see it with the iPhone app.
