Was not there yesterday since it was Mother's Day. Did u talk to them about brewing with them?

been meaning to go back to Crooked Run since they resolved their scorched wort issue.

just don't get down to Leesburg very often.

DelMarVa does have Shadow of Truth, but I didn't get a chance to try it last time I was there. 50 taps is ALMOST too many choices

but it is an awesome sight

No but it's definitely something I may be interested in. I really wanna do a brew with adroit since they use the same system that I use for their pilot batches (brewmagic). Definitely felt at home at crooked run though!

Welcome to the forum and the addiction I mean obsession I mean hobby, near-neighbor.

Those two clubs are probably the closest and easiest for you, but there's other clubs closer into town as well.

And props for jumping head first and going all-grain from the start. That's a lot to take in right off the bat. I went AG quickly after I started, but still did a couple extract and then partial mash batches first to make sure I had the fundamentals down.

those are just the clubs I'm a member of

there is BURP (oldest & largest in the area, IIRC), DC Homebrewers & HOWL (Homebrewers Of Western Loudoun)

I like Wort Hogs & NoVA for their size (not too big. BURP is HUGE, over 300 members) & convenience. both meet within 5 miles of my house, just depends on which way I turn coming out of my court

I did one Mr. Beer and then went straight to all grain. It seemed like a no-brainer, but then I'm a horrible cheapskate and I don't want to pay $50 to make 5 gallons of beer. Anyway, good call!

Thanks for all the responses. We will look into the local clubs once we get going.
