I have been homebrewing for about a year now and it has quickly become an obsession!! Rochester is probably most well known for its Gennesee brewery which has been around for more than 100 years. The craft-brew scene in upstate NY seems to be growing in popularity.

I've been brewing extract for a while and am jumping into all-grain this week... The tools on this site have been invaluable to me, I see myself being a member for years to come, cheers!
Welcome kblankenship11! Glad you are enjoying the site!
Hey! Rochester! Nice. I'm in Lewiston, about 25 mins north of Buffalo.

And I'm new here too! Absolutely LOVE this site for saving my recipes.

Welcome to both of us, I guess. Haha.

I'll be in Rochester on 9/15 for a concert at Water Street. Love it.
K-Blank 1-2-da-1: you need to get your head into this batch, man. Are you using a program, Beersmith or the like, that calculates all your strike water temps, etc.? What's the beer? Why you talking to us? Just kidding...sort of. I'm just a few batches ahead of you, but if you have any questions, post them here - maybe you can learn from our mistakes.
Don't walk away from any filling pot, be it liquor, mash or boil, until it fills well the valve - wort all over the floor is a heartbreaker.
