My name is Chris and my girlfriend and I just moved here to Seattle this past summer from central NY.
Back in NY I brewed with a friend a few times: We started with an American Pale Ale, then a Raison D'Etre clone (which came out way better than we expected), then an IPA that came out a little off. I also brewed a Kolsch with my Dad in May before I moved.
Unfortunately my friend owned all the equipment so I had to buy new stuff out here, but I just started another IPA which is in the carboy now.
I've found answers to a lot of my questions in these forums, and I hope that as I gain experience I can contribute too.
