I live in Rockwall and brew quite often. I just joined the Rockwall Homebrewers club a couple weeks ago. Nice bunch of guys and I think it will be a good club. did you find anything else in the area yet?

No I have not found any other clubs in the area. I was thinking about the Rockwall Club but, kinda unsure. Are you a grain or extract brewer?

I do all grain, although last winter I did a few extract batches to save some time. I just have it in my head that my all grain batches taste better than extract. Its hard to describe, but I seem to detect a "flavor" in every beer style when I use extract. I have a tripel and a ipa fermenting right now; a esb and the apfel wein on tap.

I have not worked up the courage yet to try all grain. I have an IPA that is finished conditioning and an cream ale fermenting. As soon as that is finished I'm going to brew a saison.
I'm in the process of making a keggel and mash tun. So hopefully I'll be able to start all grain.

I use a keggle and a 10 gallon water cooler. AG is not hard after you do it a few times. I make it much harder by not having a brew stand and having to drag all of the equipment out of my shed each time. It's like a chinese fire drill and I am exhausted after a brew day; but it gets me some good beer.

You are welcome to come over and assist-brew with me next time and I'll show you my AG methods. I am planning to brew a russian imperial and a pumpkin ale in the next few months.

That would be great! I would really appreciate be able to watch / learn AG. I am reading Designing Great Brews by Ray Daniels, I am really interested in coming up with my own brew.
Do you harvest your own yeast? That is something else I am really interested in.
We should get together sometime for a beer at The Flying Saucer.

Cool, yes I have read that book. I am reading radical brewing right now - it has some interesting recipes. I visit the saucer often! that would be good. I'll PM you my cell #. I am leaving on vacation this saturday for a week, so maybe Friday or after I return. Also, I'm planning on brewing my stout on 24 June. I usually start very early (6-7AM) to beat the heat in my back yard.

I agree... AG batches have tasted better every time for me too. I've made a Stone Ruination IPA clone and a Stout. Both have turned out great! I'm putting together my own 10 gallon mash tun this weekend and using it in a pale ale batch the following weekend. I'm taking pictures/video also. I want to hear for ways to improve and show some peeps how easy it is.
