Looking to connect with other brewers in my area. I am aware of Green Mountain Mashers but they meet on a weekday too far away in Burlington.

Hello, I live just south of you in Arlington and tend to brew during the week due to a weird work schedule. My brother and father in law used to brew near me but threw in the towel a while ago.

Hi there! Where do you get homebrew supplies? Online? Or is there a place in Manchester or Bennington?

Long hours confine my brewing to weekends, usually Sundays. Trying to upgrade my stove top brewery to an electric one. Slow going.

There are some supplies though all extract at the Beverage Den in Bennington. They actually have a decent amount of 1oz bag hops in a fridge but a poor yeast selection. I usually buy from Northern Brewer or when I'm in Saratoga I buy stuff from that shop which is pretty well stocked. I would have gone electric but my house only has a small panel and no where near the power needed for (2) 220 elements. I brew on a two vessel stand that I built and do full volume mashes. With constant recirculating I can knock out a 4 hour brew day easily.

I'm just west of Londonderry and go to Brewfest for my ingredients. I'm really surprised they are the only place around. Luckily they have a decent choice of extracts, grains, and hops. Their prices aren't bad ($12 for a 10lb bag of 2 row, $19 for Pale Ale malt, $14 for 3.3lbs of extract, $2.25 for 1oz if most hops) and they grind for free. However, their equipment stock is small (can't find a plastic on/off valve for a MLT hose or wort sprayer).

There was a place that opened in Brandon but quickly closed. They had a ton of malt. I have used Brewfest a few times but the last time I got grain there, my 10# sacks of Marris Otter only weighed 8.75 & 9.25 lbs. @$2.20/lb. that's a good chuck of change.

^^^Yikes. I haven't weighed my bags of grain to confirm they were accurate. I better double check next time.

BTW - shouldn't your user name be CJSudsVT? I mean, you are from Rutland! Own it.

Ha! I thought about buying it when it went up for sale to turn into a brew pub. Problem was I was still new to brewing.
