Default Hello from Maine

Hi all,

I'm Patrick, fairly new to Portland, and completely new to brewing.

When my father-in-law heard I wanted to brew some of my own, his eyes lit up and he offered his pile of books and equipment from the late 60's/early 70's for me to use. It's fun to see his receipts from so long ago, when everything cost under a dollar.

Anyhow, I'll be sure to read the stickies and search the forums before I ask any stupid questions (which I'm sure I'll do... apologies in advance).

Greetings! I bet those old books will prove pretty interesting! However, be aware that homebrewing "science" has evolved much in the past 20 years, and especially the past 5-10. Some of what you read in an old book might be outdated. Still, Papazian has very solid information in his books and they are pretty good reads anyway.

Homebrewing is a very fun and rewarding adventure. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to help. And we do accept gifts of homebrew as recompense...

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistletoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year
