Just wondering if there are others in the Medford, MA area interested in homebrewing. I caught the bug a year ago and it has been escalating quickly... Currently waiting for a nice day to play with all my new toys (AG, baby!). Also working on building my Kal clone (theelectricbrewery.com) but won't be done for a long time. I'm lacking a grain mill and hoping to meet somebody in the area for a mutually beneficial homebrew alliance

I'm just east of you in Malden.

Luckily, the grain mill at Beer and Wine Hobby in Woburn works fine for me, so don't feel the need for a grain mill.

you can also use the mill at Modern Homebrew in Cambridge. even if you bulk buy your own grains, they're usually cool w using it as long as you're buying other stuff

if you're looking to meet other brewers in the area you're welcome to come to one of our club meetings: http://www.wort.org/

Do a search for raging Irish red, might be a link in my footer as I made it recently. My best batch so far! Highly recommended!

Has anybody in the area successfully gotten a hold of a details water analysis for the local water? Thought I'd try here before starting a new thread. I'm just curious how accurate the Beersmith water profile for Boston is and how close it is to the Medford/Malden/Everett area water...

All of those cities/towns are on the MWRA system, and that particular set all draw from the same source...

Cheers!
