There's a few of us on here. Welcome. Been brewing long? Me? Only since October. I'm sure there are more experienced brewers in the area but I may be able to shed some light on stuff if you're just getting started.

Happy Brewing!

Not sure about the club, haven't heard of one besides the one you're speaking of.

I use tap water (hills near UAF) or, if I've planned a brew day far enough out I haul jugs to the water wagon off Chena pump.

I do all grain. Also, Dave(I think that's his name) at Gavora's was talking about one that used to exist. Maybe we should quit talkin' and start walkin'. I know a few home brewers that may be interested in a more organized effort including meetings, brew swaps, etc...

Let's come up with a name and make some posters!

Fairbanks Fermenters or Fairbanks Fermentists <----



Then the standard Fairbanks stuff:

Aurora Brewers...
Borealis Brewers...
Interior of Alaska Brewers...
Northern Lights Brewing...
etc.

I'm in the Air National Guard out at Eielson. I came up on active duty for a three year tour back in January of 2003!! I'm still here. I'm going to a friends 50th on Saturday and the host of the party is a home brewer so I'll get in where I fit in.

I think there's actually quite a lot of homebrewers around here, but only a small % on the forum. I've thought about getting a club going, but there's a lot of logistical issues to work out and I don't get to brew often enough as it is.
