Anyone local to the Salt Lake area that would be interested in getting together in the near future to help out with my first brew ever?

I'm in Springville an have done three batches so far so I'm pretty new to this myself. All three have been extract kits from northern brewer. The first two have come out very good and my third is currently in the fermentor. I have about half a case of my second batch brick warmer holiday red left. Are you doing all grain or extract and what are you brewing??

I'm not too local as I live in springville. I have three batches under my belt all extract kits from northern brewer. My first two came out really good and my third is currently in the fermentor. I have just over half a case of my last batch left its the brickwarmer holiday red from northern brewer. Are you doing extract or all grain and where abouts are you located? Sorry I sent this twice.

I really am not to sure what I am going to do. Been looking around and havnt quite picked something I want to brew. I really do enjoy a some beers more than others so i probably will try to talk to some people and target something that would be in the ballpark of those. And I live pretty close to down town. About 5-10 min away.

Not set in stone and very well could change. But would like to go all grain.

I have only done extract batches so I prob wouldn't be much help doing all grain. I may in the future move to all grain but will stick with extract for now as it is a simpler process and involves less equipment.

My main reason for looking into doing all grain is mostly because if im going to craft a beer i would much rather craft a meh beer but call it mine and work from that point than to have a pre fabbed kit and just mix it all together. both still take skill just preference i guess. But i would also really like to learn/know everything going into what im creating.

I would do an extract first, It's complicated enough as it is. I am in West valley and go to SLC frequently. Check out my ad on ksl search ibrewwithu
I just bought a mash-tun, but want to get another extract under my belt. I am working on my 5th extract batch and confident in my skills with that type, but I hear far too many people say how they have brewed 10 batches of all grain and cant get it right and give up. Let me know!

How bout you guys hit the group button at the top of the page and join the Utah brewers group. Maybe we could get a little more activity goin' and set up some meet and greets. Would love to hang out with some local brewers.
