We host regular monthly meetings, rotating typically around club member’s houses. Details are posted on our mailing list and Slack group (see below). Attendance is open for anyone that wants to attend, no homebrewing experience required! We have a wide range of experience levels in the group and always happy to help new brewers get into the craft.

Our club is going to the AHA Conference at the end of this month!! We are also serving beer at Club night as well as the events Social Club night. The club could use a donation of a few more kegs just so we have enough. If you have a keg of some great beer that we could bring down it would be much appreciated, also, you as the brewer would get full credit for brewing it. Also, all the big names in homebrewing will be sampling your beer, if that means anything to you.
The Portland Mashing Maineiacs homebrew club is now on Twitter thanks to club member Eric Befeler! If you are on Twitter, please follow us. If you are not on Twitter, then sign up!
The club is listed as @MashingMaineiac (under the username MashingMaineiacs). If you have any problems finding the account (which seems to be difficult sometimes with new accounts), you can go to Nathan Sanborn’s account (@risingtidebeer) and look at his followers. In tribute to Nathan and Rising Tide Brewing, he is the first twitterer we are following.
As discussed at the last couple meetings, we will be submitting a club malt order again this year. The 2012 North Country Malt catalog is linked below. Catalog updated on 3/29/12. We need to order a minimum of 12 bags to get the prices shown in this catalog, and it looks like we get a further discount if we order > 2000 lbs. (> 36 bags).
2012 North Country Malt Catalog – posted 29-Mar-12
When I talked to the North Country rep earlier today they urged us to get our order in as soon as possible. I guess North Country only takes orders from homebrew clubs who have ordered with them within the past 12 months, and our last order was about 1 year ago.
I created a signup spreadsheet on Google Docs at the following link. Please check out the catalog and signup within then next week, say by 4/4. If you want to split a sack of malt with someone, signup for a half-sack and send out an email. This method worked out pretty well last year.
I would like to call-in the order by Friday, April 6th, or early the following week. Like last year’s order, to avoid getting stuck holding the bag (of malt), I will not include your malt in the order unless I have received your payment by the date I place the order. You can mail or drop payment by my house. -Chuck Warner
