New here so I thought that I would give this a bump. I'll be @ the brew class that HTA will be having on July 8th.
I'm new to the home brew and will be reading lot's on here trying to learn.

Welcome to the hobby and the forum. I attended that event about a year ago. It was very informative and a lot of fun. We're lucky to have a great homebrew store in our community.

Any Gville folks a member of the local brew club? Just curious as to how it is, good people, worth the time etc? I have been a member of other type clubs before that were not so welcome and seemed very new member unfriendly. Would like to know if this is kinda the same deal. Thank you for any insight.

I live in Sanderson (Baker Co) just north of Gville. Still need to make the trip to get some goodies!

I'm a new member of the Hogtown Brewers, http://www.hogtownbrewers.org/. I think it's a great club. They're friendly, knowledgeable, and down to earth. The club has a lot of activities and events. There is the Hogtown Brew-off competition, beer fest, various group brews, pub crawls, etc. Easily the best money I've spent in homebrewing.

I'll second Pie_man's sentiments about the Hogtown Brewers... A very knowledgeable and friendly bunch, and a good club to be a part of.

Great! Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate that. After I get my first brew or two under my belt, I will more then likely send in my app.

I had a good time @ the brew class yesterday. I ended up buying a few things from the shop after the class, so I am on my way to my first brew now. I just need to build my tun and figure out what way I want to go for a brew pot.

This thread was going crazy awhile back, now everyone abandoned it?


I don't know about you guys but I am ready for some fall football and cool weather brewing.

I drilled my kettle last weekend and in the final stages of rebuilding my new/old kegerator along with gathering the rest of my brewing tools.
