I have only been brewing a short while, but am totally engulfed in brewing. We dont have a homebrew shop here in MS and the closest on is in B-ham/Memphis. Would it be to bold to start thinking of openning one or would you guys be reluctant to buy from a guy that has only been brewing for less than a year??? What are your thoughts???

I don't care how long you've been brewing, so long as you know your stuff and have a good inventory with fresh ingredients, good prices and big selection.

Normally, anything is an improvement over nothing...but you'd first want to gauge the market and see if it's a viable business model.

If you did it right you would be fine. Advertising would be critical to start-up, and you would want to hire an experienced brewer to help you run the place and order ingredients. You would learn a lot in a hurry, but there is no substitute for experience.
