Default Hello from Washington

Hello,

Been reading the forums for a while now, finally figured I would signup and post an introduction. I moved from Michigan to Washington and finally pulled out a kit my wife bought me a few years back and I'd never used.

I've helped brew a dozen or so batches with friends over the years, and now I'm finally working on my own batches. Just racked my first batch into a secondary today and everything is looking good.

James

Welcome to the forum. Where in WA if you don't mind me asking? I am moving back to WA from Hawaii in July. Good Luck, it's a great hobby.

I'm down in Richland, WA. Fortunate enough to have a microbrew here that has a homebrew store, as well as 2 other average microbrews. Plus its only a few hours drive into Portland and Seattle.

Welcome to the forum. Always nice to welcome a fellow Washingtonian. I've never been to Atomic in Richland but I like Ice Harbor down in Kennewick.

Thanks for the welcome. I've never been really impressed with the brews at Atomic, sometimes they are ok. Kimo's (aka Rattlesnake Mountain Brewing Company) has some better brews, but I'd rate Ice Harbor as the best in the area. Ice Harbor has the homebrew store where I bought the ingredients for my batch.

I'm a fan of the IPA over at Ice Harbor, especially on tuesdays when they have their cask conditioned IPA.

Welcome to the board! I had my homebrew kit sit in my basement for 9 months and finally started brewing back in Nove and now I love it.

Stale,

I'm not sure if you know this or not. Down at Ice Harbor about once a month they have a beginning brewers class (usually on a wed), and then a few weeks later they bottle the batch in another class. Also they host the Mid Columbia Zymurgy Association meetings, I think every 3rd thursday of the month.

My kit sat in the basement for...11 years.

Homebrewing has come a long way in that time....this thing called the...uh...internet?

Might have heard of it. I'm not sure it's going to be around very long.

Seriously though, this forum has saved me a ton of time, mistakes and money.

Welcome back to the passion.

PS - Once I got back into it, I went from a basic introductory kit to 3 extra glass carboys, 2 extra 7 gallon buckets, a kegging setup including 6 cornies, a 30lb CO2 tank and Sanyo in less than 45 days....It also got me to finally get around to cleaning up and plumbing my workshop.
