Secondly... I brew all grain. I live up in Harlem and have basically called off my brewing until the hottest part of summer is over. Even with a ghetto chiller, with an ambient temperature of a bazillion degrees in my apartment I can't keep the wort chilled enough during the summer months. I will probably start again in September and you will be welcome to come and brew a batch with me then. You should check out the two local homebrew clubs and meet some of your fellow homebrewers. There is the New York City Homebrewers Guild in Manhattan and the Malted Barley Appreciation Society in Brooklyn. Both are awsome and filled with great folks.

Thats why you have to brew Saisons during summer months

I have bought everything I've used for brewing, ingredients and equipment from Brooklyn Homebrew. I called and e-mailed Benjamin multiple times during my first brew session, and he was incredibly patient and helpful. I will definitely continue to give them my business.

I do belong to the NYC Homebrewers Guild yahoo group, just haven't made it to a meeting yet. I definitely plan on it, though. Haven't heard of the Brooklyn group, but I'll check them out. Thanks!
