Cheers from Fredericton!
« on: May 26, 2019, 03:03:06 PM »
Greetings! 

I found this brewer's association on Facebook.  I've been brewing with all-grain and partial extract beer kits for two years.  I am looking to upgrade my brewing capacities to 5-6 gal. all-grain vessels, and would love to get involved with Fredericton-area brewing clubs.

Please let me know if there are any brewing clubs in Fredericton.  I will also keep an eye out for good used brewing and fermenting vessels.

Thanks,
Allen

Welcome Allen!

Here's some gear for sale, although it might be mostly gone by now: http://nbcba.org/forum/classifieds/brew-equipment-for-sale-everything-must-go/

I use the BIAB (brew in a bag) method for all grain. You need a bigger pot (15 gal is ideal), but you don't need a mash tun. It also saves a lot of time sparging. I started using BIAB as a way to try out all grain without getting all of the equipment, but it's still working for me 4 years later.

Welcome to the forum, you found the right spot!

I hope you can make it to a meet soon.  I believe a few of us might meet up at Trailway to celebrate their 3rd year on the June 1st weekend.

Welcome!
Most of us are in Fredericton and are always eager to help. Lots of experienced home brewers in the club too so don't hesitate to ask questions.
It's always a good idea to use a pot that can hold more volume than you need for boil overs and such.
