been brewing for 1 year as of today 4.13.12 doing all grain with electric keggles in the basement. In the next few months I would like to start slanting yeast to build up some stock.

next brew should be Sunday morning, 10g of Centennial Blond by Biermuncher

Cheers

Hey guy's if we could get a pallet order together we could have north country drop ship to Stamford. Ask around and I'll contact North country about shipping. Also about a mixed pallet ( 2 row, pilsner, ETC). Just brewed a hitchino nest white. Awsome brew, in the secondary now can't wait to bottle!!

As I understand North County requires an account, not sure what it takes to open one though. A full pallet is 42 bags and the drop off location need a loading dock. Let us know what North county says.

If this gets going we will move it to the ct group buy thread. I expect the first group buy in any given area is the hardest to get going, after that it should be easy to fill a pallet.

North County isn't accepting homebrewer accounts anymore... But I think Poohbah has one... I think I am set on bulk grain for now. But will be interested in the fall...

I called country malt and was told they wont sell to us!!! Even a full pallet buy did'nt sway them. If poobah has an account I might be able to find a drop off point. I'd like 4 sacks but what price are the grains? Any price sheets? I just bought a seasonal kit from Northern the french Bier du farm. Gonna brew it 2nd weekend in May.

I have an account but you need to order 30-40 bags to make it worth while. It's about $100 to ship a pallet (2000#). Bags range from $30 to $45. I'm set for a while so you'll have to organize and collect if you want to proceed...

Hey poobah thanks for the info I'll start looking for enough guy's to fill a pallet. If your not busy on May 1st there is a homebrewing competition at coalhouse. Mark and Tess from maltose express are comming down to judge stouts and porters. I'm going with my brewing bud and will see what kind of response we get with a pallet order. Let me know if your comming and we'll "hit those taps". Anyone reading this come on down, Coalhouse homebrewers want to meet you.

Deadline was last Saturday. My intention was to enter the competition. I went to pour 2 bottles of stout and killed the keg filling the first bottle! We went anyway. My Mexican Lager finished 1st in their August competition.....

Groton check-in. I just got my own propane tank and water filter, so I can stop borrowing my neighbor's. I've got a cooler mash tun, Blichmann Boilermaker, and a DIY kettle in some sort of mishmashed tiered setup.

I try to brew at least once a month. If anyone ever wants to do a brewday, learn to do AG, or just hang out while brewing, I'm open when the Navy doesn't take me away.
