Any other Lexington Homebrewers on here?

I'm not a BOCK member because I have scouts on Monday nights so I'm just checking to see who else in my neck of the woods is on here that home brews. It's good to know some of the folks around me with the same hobby.
Have a great night and I hope you're drinking something you're proud of!
Cheers!

Hey fellow Lex brewer. I brew pretty regularly, though as of late I seem to be slacking. Not a member of BOCK either. I was invited to attend but never made it out there.

So how do you brew/set-up? Extract or All Grain?

Me I'm somewhere in the middle. I do a Hoegarrten clone all grain, because I haven't had the budget yet to start building my all grain set-up, I mainly brew extract with grain additions. I grow my own hops (Cascade and Magnum) so I mainly brew ales and a few stouts.

Cheers!

I did extract and I'm not apposed to it but I have a bunch of grain that I'm workign my way through right now. I keep hearing people talk about how expensive it is to do all grain and to get it set up. I did the whole thing for around $25 cooler included. No ball valve just a CPVC mainfold on the inside and a brass nipple on the outside with the hose. I wrap the hose around the handle of the cooler in kind of a figure 8 and it keeps the wort in and doesnt drip out. I just started raosting my own grains and I have a batch that I'm transfering tonight to secondary. I'm looking forward to it.
I grew some Willamette and Centenial this year but did a really poor job.
I didnt water enough or something. I had cones, but not very many.

I just moved to Nicholasville from Lexington. I brew, too. Well, I've started brewing. I have my second batch in primary, right now. It's the Northern Brewer bourbon barrel porter. I used the extract kit. Once I get the hang of things, I plan on making the jump to AG.

What is this BOCK? I assume it is a homebrewing club. Any info on it?

That's about how I am mashing too. By "All Grain Set-up" I envision a HERMs type system. I'm going to start designing it new year and getting parts piece by piece as I have the extra cash.

For now, the igloo cooler mash and extract batches are doing the job!

@ Xtant

"BOCK" stands for Brewers Of Central Kentucky

I think they are still between websites so there isn't one I can send you to, but I think they have a Facebook page.

Cheers!

I don't live in Lexington now, but when I started homebrewing I did. I have to go back to get my supplies right now. Have only done partials so far but I want to try AG.
