Can't believe I haven't checked in here yet, but wanted to get on the radar. I'm in Hebron and brewing tomorrow. Trying the Darth Vader Black IPA on here AG. Any eastern/central CT brew clubs out there?

Thanks,

- Jarrid

This is Max from West Hartford. We just moved to CT from CA last summer and I've only been able to brew two batches so far. I'm still extract brewing, waiting until I get really consistent before I start moving into grains.

Right now I just bottled a clone of Long Trail Double Bag Ale from Austin Homebrew Supply, as well as a small batch of hard cider. I'm thinking my next brew will be a saison that I made last year for a friend's wedding (so I didn't get to drink much of it).

My next project is going to be a DIY stirplate made from a computer case fan. There's a super-long thread somewhere with all the instructions.

Matt checking in from Windsor. I'm still fairly new to this but have been brewing every few weeks for a couple years now, adding a bit of equipment and such here and there as I go. Switched to All Grain in the fall and already have 5 or 6 batches that have come out pretty good. Made my first yeast starter last night, i've always just pitched direct with no issues but figured i'd try this out. It's going into a chocolate porter i'm brewing with some friends and family on Saturday. Since you're from CT if you're reading this, you'll probably appreciate this...we're using top quality cocoa straight from Munsons! One of the guys joining us has been a candy maker there for 30 years. Best chocolate ever.

Good times!

That's awesome. I think Hooker does a beer with Munsons chocolate in it.
Good luck with the brewday!

Thank you sir, yes they do...in fact they must be doing another batch right now because he couldn't bring me any nibs, they all went to Hooker!

No worries though, because I think the powder was enough...nibs in secondary could be overkill on the chocolate. I guess we'll see!

Hey there, New(ish) brewer here in Oakdale. I have a bunch of wine batches under my belt and about 6 extract batches. Just started purchasing the goods to go all grain. Been lurking around the forum here for a while so I figured I would sign up and say hello. Would love to sit in on an all grain session with someone who knows what they are doing, or at least acts like it
