Default Maine Brewer

I am definitely not new to this forum, but I wanted to quickly introduce myself, since I am now a full member.

I have been brewing for about 5 years. I started (like most) with extract at my house while in college. I then went to all-grain right away, doing 10 gallon batches. I realized soon that I had bit off a little more than I could chew since at that point I was living in an apartment with the world's smallest kitchen. My mash tun was a converted rectangular cooler with a PVC manifold. Not a bad tun, but no HLT and tough to clean in such conditions.

So after alot of frustration, I stopped brewing for awhile until I moved into my own house (where I am now). To get back into it, I have done several extract brews that have come out great! I have several kegs and a keggerator as well.

Recently I built a new Mash Tun and HLT (thanks to the easy cooler to mash tun conversion on this site). So I am back in action and starting to put together some different recipes. I have 3 going right now (Blonde, IPA, and Dogfish 60 Minute Clone). This is a great site and I appreciate all of the information you all have to offer. Keep it up and I hope to contribute where I can.

I'm up in the Rockland area, basically mid-coast (on the water) . My sister lives down in north berwick, pretty much on the border, so I'm down that way quite a bit.

I know right where Sanford is. I've never been to Colorado, but it sounds great, lots of microbreweries!

I think there are quite a few homebrewers around New England, but probably not a ton of them online. As it says in my previous posts, I have been brewing for quite awhile and really can't get enough of it at this point. Makes me want to start up a business in this area, either as a brewery, brewery/pub, or some sort of homebrew thing....

dwpumo, I think most of us, here, would also love to have brewing turn into a way to make a living... Hell, I've only been brewing for a few months and I'd love to do that.

Bet you have a good contact for lobsters up there...

I have family up in Wells, and York, but don't get up there too often... I was up in Freeport last July and really want to move up into that area, or even more north (or Down East)... Been trying to get away from the Ma$sholes for some time now... Just can't seem to get a decent job up there.

BTW, welcome to the boards...
