Hi all,

I'm knew to this forum and am interested in converting my home brewery to electric. I live in western Michigan (Grand Rapids) and I'm wondering if there are any electric brewers in western Michigan. I would love to see an electric brew rig in action and get some help putting one together. Anybody out there?

Thanks,
Todd

I'd love to go electric too. Haven't seen one first hand.

I should have said, I'm interviewing for a position in Holland next week- if I end up with the gig you guys are welcome to come check out my rig! I have been brewing electric since August- it is getting tweaked at the moment, but I must say that electric brewing is great!

I will be going electric just as soon as I get my brew room finished in the basement. Out of curiosity, what part of Grand Rapids?

I live in Eastown (Benjamin and Bates). I would love to talk about/work together on putting together an electric brew rig. I currently do all grain and use propane. I, too, am finishing up a "brew room" in my basement and just starting to gather the components for all electric.

That's great! For those interested, we should get together for a beer and swap project notes, etc. Any interest?

I'm also new to this forum but have been lurking around here for some time trying to absorb some of the great info. I live in West Mich and work in GR. I'm planning on an electric brewery as well. I'm currently cleaning up the one space in my basement that my family doesn't use. New flooring and paint are required before I can start piecing together the brewing equipment. Between work and family it can be hard to find time for brewing, however, I like to call in sick and ignore my family.
