Bill, can we get some of your content on here? Maybe an RSS feed from your blog?

Bottled an Amber ale 2 weeks ago.  For my next club meeting we will be featuring an Imperial Red Ale,  and hopefully a smoked porter.

Bumped up my starter to do an East Coast Lager this weekend.  Think a cross between Brooklyn Lager and SA Boston Lager with a bit more hop aroma.

Brewed over the weekend, a chocolate stout, looking pretty good.  Rich has an oatmeal chocolate stout and a brown ale both "real ale" style on our beer engine.  Dana's got something cooking up- he just raided our whole leaf centennial hops!

I just opened a friend's latest release.  He has been home brewing for  a couple of years.  His first attempt at a "schwarzbier" otherwise known as a "black lager".

Are there any home brewers in SE CT who get together to taste beers?  I know a few home brewers who might be interested in sharing some of their beers.

Wil Santiago, the assistant brewer at Cottrell, formed a home brew club a few months back.  Meetings are once a month, generally at the brewery, and this would be the perfect venue for your friends.  This month's meeting is Sunday, March 27th starting at 2pm.  Also if they are interested there is a MoreBeer Group called the Whaling City Alers that generally distributes meeting dates.

Brewed a partial mash today. Making beer bread with the spend grains since there is so many of them

Beer bread is great. Someone took the concept to a new level though.  Rich discussed a "brew bar", where they used the spent grains in an energy bar which is actually pretty darn tasty.

Aaren - Thanks for the brew club info.  I am interested in joining a club and will check these out.  Are there any members of these clubs who can provide more info?
