Default Hello from CT

Good afternoon from CT!

I've been a reader of this forum for the last week or so and have decided to join since starting my first batch on Sunday afternoon.

I am currently brewing my first homebrew, a clone of Brooklyn Brown Ale, and have a few questions that I'm sure you all have had. I will most likely be in the Beginner forum asking later on.

But for now, hello and thanks in advance for any help you can give!

I live in Shelton, so not too far from Watertown. Where do you normally go for supplies?

Also, to all, here is a link to my first post. Any help would be appreciated: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/two-...53/#post924595

Thanks!

Oh looks like I found the right place then. I was surprised to hear they're pretty much the biggest homebrew supply shop in CT. It's so close it's great. Just a heads up that they did move their location about a week ago. They are now in the ACE Hardware shopping center next to Senor Panchos, the new store looks great.

Yeah, last time I was there a few weeks ago the old spot was in a shambles as they were in the process of moving. Good to know they finally moved.

They are big and extremely helpful, for the most part. There is a good place in Willimantic, can't recall the name offhand, if you're ever up that way. I stop in now and again because I spend a lot of time at UConn.

Hello from Trumbull.

Maltose is great. If you're lucky the puppy is running around... she's getting HUGE!

Nice people there, and always willing to help. We should get a big group of people and try and get some discounts from them

Nice to see more CT people here. I love their dogs, I was buying a big mixing spoon for my first batch and the puppy was all over me trying to get it like it was her bone. That discount idea sounds like a good idea, we just have to sell them on it.

I'm in for that. I've got two neighbors who frequent Maltose, too.

I have a lot of grain at the moment (crystal, black, chocolate) but I need a mill before I can use them...

We definitely should get a brewday going. Make them host it at maltose
