Default For those in the Ithaca area...

Hydroponics Shops of America (newly relocated to a warehouse next to The Haunt and across from Inlet Glass and Mirror) is now selling homebrewing supplies. There equipment selection is still fairly limited, but its nice to have an option now that Ithaca Beer stopped selling supplies. They has a pretty decent selection of ingredients and according to the owner they should be getting a pallet of cornies they'll sell for about $60 each. The owner is a really nice guy and certainly knows what he is talking about. My only complaint is prices seem to be a bit on the expensive side (at least for kits).

Good to know, been going to Ithaca Coffee Co. on Green St (not Triphammer location) for most homebrew supplies since they took over the business from Ithaca Beer co. Better selection of equipment, similar ingredient selection but no employee knowledge of any sort. Talked to someone who claimed to have influence on homebrew supplies but didn't even know what caramel 60 was.

Gonna retract this statement. Went in today to pick up some supplies for a batch and finally talked to someone who homebrews. Talked about the batch and made a few helpful suggestion about what specialty grains to use along with a couple samples of what they had on tap as examples.
