If you ever see the blue F150 parked in front of the doors and a guy giving everyone beer to taste inside that's me... Jade calls me her other son. I'm normally there everyday around 4-5ish.

There are several clubs in the Central valley area that I want to make sure you all know about.

In Modesto/Merced/Turlock area there is the Central Valley Brewers Guild
In Modesto there is the Modesto Mashers
In Manteca there is the San HopKeen HomeBrew Club (I am a part of this one)
In Stockton there is the Brew Angels.

Let me know if you want anymore info on these clubs.

We have The Worthogs brew club in Fresno if you want to add that to your list, and Bencomos is our LHBS.

Hey there!

I am new here, and figured I would post a shout here... I am interested in learning to brew, but have not done a thing about it except, well... drink up to this point.

We are in Salida right now, and are moving to Ripon this summer. The new house has a third car garage which has been okayed as my man cave - podcast studio, cigar lounge, and now a brewing area!

Looking forward to learning from everyone and doing what looks like a lot of reading to catch up.

I posted on a forum hosted by the CVBG and have a registration pending with the Modesto Mashers forum so I can get some good info from locals.

Welcome. Those are good groups. I also am part of a club that meets in Manteca that is just starting. I highly recommend barley and wine in Modesto to get your first kit and do one of their brew classes (which you can get for free or discounted just by asking).

It is a little trickier brewing in the summer in the valley but it can be done. Enjoy!

Yeah, when it comes time to get started, I will defitely check out B&W... don't want to waste too much of their time kicking tires until I actually have the go-ahead...

Eventually, I am thinking of walling in the cave so that I can have A/C and a ventilation system in there... When that happens, I should be able to bre year round and keep the temp of the room just where I need to...

Livermore here. I'd love to check someone else's brew methods or have another brewer over. Always brewed solo so far.
