Default Hello from California

Hey there, Dave here.

I came to homebrewtalk.com looking for mead info and discovered this forum. I've been brewing for a long time and want to try something new, and a (lying!) friend of mine told me how easy it is to make mead... well, I suppose it looks easier but the choices for how to proceed are a little bewildering. I mean, you brew beer, you dang well are gonna boil it! hehe.

Anyway, hello, and hope to hang on the forums now...

San Francisco Bay area, a little burg called Suisun. Otherwise known to highway 680 travelers as "that freaking windy place".

I always thought Needles was the "freaking windy place" in California, but I suppose other places could qualify as well.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome to HBT.

I now have 2 boys going to school in the bay area. Nice place to live. Each visit = 2 brewery/brewpub stops.

Welcome! There seems to be an influx of Bay Area'ers recently! We'll have to get together for a brew session sometime!

I think a bay area brew session would rock. I'm in for that.

I'm a bit north of you guys, but I haven't been to the bay area since last October. PM me if you guys are putting together a meeting...I'll bring down some brew!
