Looking to find someone semi local that does all grain full mash brews to help me out... It would be simple.

What you would (possibly) do - brew, as you normally do, as if nothing was any different at all. Perhaps drink a beer or 3.

What I would (possibly) do - Watch and learn. I have read several articles about it, bit I still feel like I would understand the process better if I watched it being done. I would be willing to help some. Perhaps drink a beer or 3. (I can provide these beers, but they will likely be commercial as I have almost no homebrew left.)

Anyone interested?

THere is a very active homebrew club in Erie called HAZARD. We have a few members who come from Oil City. You can join the club on Facebook, maybe attend a few meetings and see if you want to become a dues paying member.

It's a shame that you are posting this now, on 11/2 we had a group brew day up in Erie with three of us doing all grain batches during our meeting. We also had a pretty big chinese auction and a lot of beer was drank. It would have given you a great introduction to the club and got all the info on brewing you would have wanted to know

Hey Jim. I'm in Tarentum which isn't too far from you I don't think. You could gladly sit in on a brew session with me.

Tarentum is ~ 1 hr 45 minutes south, I am in Oil City...... I would willingly drive that far to learn a few things. How often do you brew?

For some reason when I read Oil City my brain saw Ford City, which is much closer to me. Strangely enough though my in-laws have a house in Titusville not too far from you. I get up there a few times a year.

I generally brew once or twice a month depending on what I have going on. I'm actually just about to sell off some equipment and go to an electric system so I probably only have a few brews left on this gear. I use a keggle for a brew kettle and a igloo cube cooler for a mash tun.
