To all my brewing brothers and sisters in Portland, OR...
blacklab and I thought it would be a good idea to have an AG brew fest in the Portland area. For those that are interested in AG Brewing or just looking for an excuse to get together with fellow HBT'ers for a day of brewing (AG or otherwise).

Tentative plans include myself hosting (I'm in SE Portland/Milwaukie), no date has been set though. Just wanted to get a feel for who would be interested and what dates work.

Brewtopia, you're always getting into everybody's bidness! But I know how you feel. It's like pulling teeth trying to get people to get together round these parts. Count me in! I'm usually available during the day/evening, so that's fine for me.

A weekend would be great, maybe this spring after the weather warms up. I might be in, depending on how much advance notice I get. We are understaffed at work, so taking time off requires about 3-4 weeks notice.

I'm totally thinking a weekend. Saturday's are best for me, but that doesn't mean Sunday's are out. I've got a small garage and a retractable awning, so weather shouldn't be an issue. I'm hoping we're starting to get out of the really COLD weather, even though the rain will still be around.

Again, this is just a way to get some HBT'ers together to brew. Brewtopia, as someone that's taking their hobby to the next level I'd be honored to have you join us and maybe teach us (me) a few things.

So, I'm going to say February is too soon for most folks. Maybe the last weekend in March?

Last weekend in March is good for me.

There is a slight chance I'm going to have Dragonboat practice Saturday (29th) morning (would be our first of the season). Is an early afternoon start time OK, or should we look at Sunday(30th)?

How many of you would be bringing equipment and doing batches? Just trying to get an idea of what everyone is thinking and maybe start planning a few batches.

Either works for me. I would like to bring equipment and brew a batch.
