Long Island, NY supplies
 
I live in Nassau county and haven't been able to find a LHBS. I have been out to Karps hardware store a few times and considered driving into Brooklyn. Does anyone have any Suggestions for a "local" shop. Also has anyone every been to "Brothers At Kedco in Farmingdale?"

Speaking as a Brooklyinite:

do yourself a favor and just order from Austin Homebrew Supply or More Beer. I have not found a LHBS that has anywhere near the selection or quality. It takes some extra planning ahead, but it is easy enough to only use online suppliers.

Austins is great! I just would love to have somewhere to go with off flavor issues. Thanks for the advise.

Heh, my door is always open for trying beers if you make it over to Greenpoint.

These guys just finally got a brick and mortar storefront after a few years of online distribution from their livingroom. I'm no longer living in Brooklyn, but would definitely go make friends there if I were...

+1 on Brooklyn Homebrew and Austin Homebrew Supply I use them both.

I go to Brooklyn Homebrew. They're great people, always ready to answer questions and pleasant about it. In fact I just got back from there.

I still need to check them out now that they have a B&M shop. Might do so this week.

Brooklyn Homebrew is great, I've become pretty good friends with them. They actually asked me a question last week! If there is anything I can't get from them, I find it online, but they have a great selection of malts, hops and yeast.

Hey, its a little far, but Arbor Wine in Islip is great. Jim is a great guy and he has a huge stock of hops, WLP Yeast, keg parts, pretty much everything. Tell him Chris sent you in.
