I moved to queen creek about a year ago. The water is so mineralized I just put in an RO system and love it. Put it in the kitchen. Hooked the fridge up to it too. I just fill a bucket and carry it out to the kettle. Then I add brewing salts to the mash.

P.S I'm also looking for fellow brewers to brew or catch beers with

Fiancé is from Gilbert. I found a nice little homebrew shop on baseline rd I think when I was up there for Christmas. Good luck on the water. I hope to move out there someday.

I like all beer but if I had to choose my favorite beer is hefeweizen. I'm currently sucking a Belgian homebrew. Galaxy hops are sweet in a tropical pale ale at flameout. Good for pineapple aroma. Are you doing extract or all grain?

Hey guys, I'm from Gilbert too! I used to brew about 20 years ago but I'm getting back into it in a big way. I just bought a used kegerator with temp control and I'm going to use it as my fermentation chamber/keg server. I'm very excited since it's been so long. I also purchased a couple of pin lock 5 gallon kegs, no bottling for me! I ordered the "American Wheat Ale" from Northern Brewer since the wife likes heffeweisens. I figured I'd make the little lady's beer first as it's best to keep mama happy!

Good luck with your brewing!

Hi!! I'm down in Tucson, and the tap water here is barely drinkable (odd smell, and doesn't taste that great). I usually just get the gallon or 2.5 gallon containers of drinking water from the grocery store. Makes for a pretty good mead.

Hey. I'm right on the border of Chandler and Gilbert. Good to see the are some fellow brewers out here. I mainly brew cider, but dabble in mead, ceyser, and fruit wine here or there. My buddy does the beer, but I help him with his beer sometimes and enjoy the beers n bros time. Glad to meet you all.
