Default New guy from MA

Hi everyone!

I'm from Lowell, MA (about 45 minutes outside Boston). I've been home brewing for about 6 years or so, but had to take about 2 or 3 years off from it due to a back issue. Lifting large containers of hot liquid just wasn't on the menu. Two surgeries and some physical therapy later, I'm back in the game. It feels good to finally drink my own beer again.

I've been lurking for a little while, mostly gathering ideas for my keezer build. I'm still deciding how to approach it and will be asking for some advice from the masters soon.

I'm mostly an all-grain brewer, but appreciate an easy extract brew day once in a while. Once I get my keezer built, I'm gonna want to fill it, and finding time for all-grain brew sessions is a little tough sometimes.

Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and thank everyone in advance for the wealth of info here!

well, then, just plan on triple batches! its a lot cheaper when allgrain-ing.
5 gallons = 3 hours. 15 gallons= 4.5 hours.
theres a lot of folks on here from our parts ( even if I know more of the south o B. crew).
welcome.

Triple batches! Now that's one way to jump back in head first!

I'm right by the Chelmsford/Lowell line, around the corner from Drum Hill.

One time I went to Woostah to buy a toastah ya bastad. Couldn't resist.
I'm from NH originally. Now I have two blind neighbors with seeing eye dogs. One named Wooster..... from MA. I know this has nothing to do with beer.
Welcome!
