    Hi Guys,

    i have been brewing kit and kilo for couple of years now and been always wanting to make the leap to AG. i have read lots of stuff about AG in books and on the forum here but would really like to get more of a first hand experience.

    i was hoping to see someone's set-up, maybe drop in on someone's brew day for minute. it doesn't have to be fancy, the simpler the better for a newbie like me. i guess i am trying to aviod some of the obvious stupid mistakes and don't want to rush out and buy a bunch of crap i dont really need.
    if anyone can help, or direct me to some reliable threads/links/books i would really appreciate it.

    Best first post ever.

    Welcome aboard, DesB. I'm sure someone in your area will offer you a peek at their kit on a brewday. Good luck with the big move to AG!

    +1 Great approach, you'll learn fast. I do believe we have an AHB member in Medowie, pretty sure he uses "Medowie, god's own swamp" in his sig but can't remember his AHB Nick

    Welcome,

    Edit: It's Les the Weizguy, your home and hosed, look him up, a top guy.

    Des,

    First off welcome to AHB :party:

    There is a new Hunter & Newcastle Brew/Beer Club that had its first meeting a month ago. Next meeting is 15 Jan IIRC @ The Germania Club (Warners Bay).

    Why don't you come along & say hello, because I'm sure that you'll find more than a couple of AG brewers that will be happy assist you. Send a PM to Schooey (Tony) & give him your email address so you can get included on the mailing list.

    More on the new club here - http://www.aussiehomebrewer.com/forum//ind...showtopic=39540

    Hope to see you at the next meeting.

    Dave.
