I'm new here and I just recently purchased a Brewer's Best equipment kit. Still need to get a pot and bottles. I'm getting back into home brewing.

Just wondering if there are any fellow home brewers from the Cincinnati area as it would be nice to meet some people here that home brew. I currently do not know anyone in my area that home brews.

Welcome aboard!
glad to here you are getting back into brewing.
Brewers best kits are really nice ones.
I leave in the northeast, so i cant help you with brewers in your city.
if you have a Homebrew shop close, dont be afraid to ask if they know of any clubs or events.

Thank you for the tips. Turns out that there is two clubs here. While I have you on here, do you think a 4 gallon pot would be perfect for extract and extract partial mash brewing?

One thing I tell brewers starting out is, the boil pot is something to think about, think if you plan to switch to full boils or attempt all grain at some point.
When I started I had a 4 gallon pot already which was perfect for me. But I quickly wanted to learn more and do full boils and then started BIAB. Now I brew all different ways, but mostly all grain. I did buy a 8 gallon pot about 6 months after I started brewing and then I bought a GrainFather.
So to answer your question yes 4 gallon pot would work, but if you plan to go bigger save a little more and buy the bigger pot, plus it saves on boil overs :)

I can get a good deal on a 30 Qt. pot which is 7.5 gallons. I just don't know if the pot is to big for a extract boil. Brewer's Best recommends a minimum 2.5 gallons of water, but most You Tubers seem to use 3 gallons of water as the norm.

FYI, I do plan on getting into Brew In The Bag.

Yeah, I would suggest going with the bigger pot, then you won't need to get another one later on. The more wort you can boil the better I think:)
