Default HomeBrew Supply of Texas-ever order from them?

Hey I found this site last night and was wondering if anyone has ordered from them.

they're equipement prices are pretty good...especially thier bottle prices

for a case of 12oz (recycled) bottles shipped to me is $13..

I don't really plan on buying many bottles (unless they're fliptops) but that is pretty cheap!

just wondering if you've heard of this place

If you're a beer lover, why pay $13 for a case of empty 12oz beer bottles? I just buy a $13 case of Sam Adams and remove the labels when i'm done. In the end, they're both just recycled beer bottles.

When i first started homebrewing, i wasn't drinking anything with a crown top so i had to buy bottles. I ended up going to the local beer distributor and buying their recycled bottles for $.25 each. I gave them a good long bleach bath and voila. Cheap beer bottles.

If you need help with prepping commercial beer bottles for homebrew, here's a post i did in the past on it. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=23808

How are you buying sam for $13/case? I think you mean 12pack

I agree with the suggestion though

I never heard of them. They never bothered to renew their web site security certificate since 2005. That's enough for me to steer clear of ordering online from them. I'd phone it in though if I didn't have Austin Home Brew in my backyard (well, practically, but it would be nice).
