Hi,

I'm Phil, I live in Horfield and am about to brew my third full grain batch.

I've always been a fan of a good ale and was persuaded to take up brewing by my collegue, your very own Mr Poole.

Hi Phil, welcome.

You're probably within walking distance of the miners arms in st Werburghs if you fancy sharing your efforts at beer club (3rd Thursday of every month). Have you tried Rich's beer - he really knows his shit.

And if you can't wait that long and fancy sampling a nice load of 'winter warmers' (whatever they are) then Bristol Craft Brewers meet on the 6th December. It's allways the first Thursday of the month at the Stag and Hounds on Old Market, RichP will most likely be there too.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Hi,

Stuart here.

Just starting out brewing beer having made wine a few times a good number of years ago.

Have a Wherry kit on the go to tide me over and learn about the fermenting part of things.

Beginning to gather kit together to start all grain brewing as soon as possible. Will most likely start with BIAB until funds allow for a mash tun.

Cheers,

Stu :)

Welcome Stu. Many of us started on wherry.. Beware, this is a hobby that you can get hooked on!
We meet 1st thursday of every month at the stag and hounds, Old Market 7:30 for an 8 start. Friendly bunch, so bring a bottle of wherry and talk about (and drink) beer. Hope to see you there.
cheers
steve

There is another club meeting in Bristol as well... specifically aimed at brewers who don't take themselves too seriously; 'Bristol's Most Relaxed Beer Club' (c) in fact. We have a meeting this Thursday at the Miners Arms in St Werburghs, where we will drink and discuss homebrew. No agenda, no formalities, just talking a nice mixture of shite and sense about homebrew. Some of our number are pretty knowledgeable and you will pretty much always learn something.

*Disclosure* I also go to Bristol Craft Brewers on the first Thursday of each month and they are all a good bunch of people and brewers who will also teach you a lot (as they did for me). The two clubs are quite different animals though....

Might see you down there?

Be patient with the Wherry because it takes weeks to clear.

WRT mash tun. You can build one very easily for about 20 quid, but if you come along to club meetings you'll probably find somebody willing to lend you one for a brew before you make your own. Can be useful for figuring out how to do it.

Hi All,

My name is Dan recently moved to Bristol. Started brewing this year, have done one extract and two full grain brews (an IPA that has just been bottled and a stout that's still fermenting). Hoppy pale ales are my favourite but love most styles.

Still have a lot to learn and it would be great to pick the brains of more experienced people and also to sample some beer!

Based in Clifton at the moment, look forward to hearing/seeing you guys in the near future.

Hi There, if you have the free time pop along to the next meeting on the 4th April details on where are here http://www.bristolbrewers.co.uk/

Should be plenty of beer to sample.
