I wish I could brew 3 or more times a month. I'm going to start making a habbit of brewing once a month.

This grain card seems to be the way to go unless they would go cheaper if we bought more as a group. The card seems like a good deal.
I too am married with 3 kids; SWMBO is just very supportive and understanding of my hobbies. I moved to Madison a year ago to support her career, which has paid off in spades.


BrewNinja: I'm with you, but I guess that's how you meet other people. You're a stranger here but once. Maybe some of us who aren't already members should all plan on joining at the same time. I may wait to the first of the year. The club is $25 per year and if you were to join now it would still be $25 for the rest of this year.

Waunabeer: I'm even more jelouse now. lol. living the dream.

It may be that you pay yearly according to when you join, if you become a member in June maybe you don't have to pay in until next June? I really don't know but I could get the answer. I would be all for joining the beginning of next year.

I emailed the Guild a while back and they told me it was yearly starting in January so if I joined now I would have to pay the $25 for the rest of this year. It's not that big of a deal, but its the getting more bang for my buck. That and a little more experience and finishing my brew room come first.

Yeah, I can wait to join. Going to Wine and Hop today after work. I have to pick up a 6.5 gal glass carboy, my previous one started to "star" on the inside from an imperfection in the glass that wasn't seen by SWMBO when she bought it for me a couple of Christmases ago. I am also thinking about the Bottle Sulfiter (the sanitizer spray that attaches on the bottle trees) and perhaps a bottling bucket. I'm trying not to use a glass carboy and my auto siphon when I bottle.

Another Madison brewer here, I'm doing my first AG today. I also joined the grain card club at the Wine and Hop Shop, $70 for 50 lbs.

Welcome jcdouglas and good luck with your first AG brew! What part of Madison are you in? I reall like the way Wine and Hop has changed the way you can buy grain from them, it has really cut down on my left-over ingredients. When I tire of driving from Verona to the Wine and Hop Shop I will start to order my ingredients from Brewmasters Warehouse since the prices are good, shiping is decent, and a lot of people like their service and quality.
How long have you been brewing?

I live on the southwest side of Madison, near Verona and Fitchburg. I've been brewing extract on and off, but mostly off, for about four years. Today is my third batch this month and I plan on doing a fourth on Sunday. I am now officially addicted.
