Default Info on HomeBrew Supply of Texas

Hi all,
Anyone else having a problem with their orders from this place. Placed a order on 12/27, haven't got a tracking # and have not got a response from calls or emails. I have ordered from Austins and others and it was like clockwork. Any info would be appreciated.

Never heard of them either. Their web site security certificate expired on 11/27/08 and they list a PO Box for an address. Their site requires you to register before you see the wonderful shipping charges. In my case $7.07 for four ounces of hops.

I'm not impressed, but not surprised either.

Based on their lack of response and expired certificate, I would call them one more time and leave them a message that I am canceling the order and disputing any charge on my credit card as product ordered, but not received.

Then I would order from a reputable online vendor such as the ones below.

Austin Homebrew



Williams Brewing

I've done business with all of them and they do a great job.

I emailed them this morning asking them about their expired web site security certificate. No answer yet.

Their web site says they are in Grand Saline, TX which is between Dallas and Shreveport in the middle of BFE, TX.

Six pack of Apfelwein says they are out of bidness.

www.homebrewsupplyoftexas.com gets a big whopping F from the Better Business Bureau. You might want to give Lance a call at the number listed. It is different than the one listed on his web site.

I don't live to far from there, I will get my pitch fork and torch out if needed.


I use AHS or go to LHBS in Richardson, TX
