Name: Bill Splaine. I live in Healdsburg. Retired from HP for quite a while. Enjoy brewing and BBQing, RV'ing, woodcarving and some photography. Oh, and I try to play the ukulele... mostly oldies.
No, but I was a member in the 80's as I remember. Still have my badge. However, I didn't really get back into brewing then due to work conflicts.
Just started brewing after a hiatus of maybe 45 years.. and that beer wasn't very good despite packing a punch. I've been doing extract brews and I think I finally have my equipment together for all grain.
I love this group.. and the folks that make it up.
Thanks for the heads up Bill. I live on the south end of Healdsburg on Los Amigos off of Limerick Lane. I also work at Merriam Vineyards at 11650 Los Amigos Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448. If you are ever in the area stop by the winery and say hi!
Sorry I didn't see you greeting until now. It was nice to meet you :)
That was fun last night! Nancy and Bob have just scheduled their cheesemaking classes for Saturdays in Jan/Feb/Mar/April. You should definitely sign up for one if you want to get started. They are good fun, and you get to see 4 diff cheeses come to life.
Hi Bill, I have a cousin named Bill Spillane in SF. Hope to meet you and find out from where your ancestors came.
