Yeah, I've heard about them, but haven't stopped in yet. I've been planning on stopping by there when I needed that one thing I forgot. Luckily, I haven't really had that happen yet.

Also heard that there's a new shop opening up in Glen Cove soon.

Thanks,
--Sam

Hi. I'm in Rocky Point, started in January, have two small fermenters, fifth and sixth batches fermenting now. My LHBS is Brewtopia in Port Jeff. They have brewers meetings the first tuesday of every month at 7pm. I met some nice guys, tried some great brews. I'm still doing extract, but plan a simple biab for my next batch.

East Meadow brewer here. I go into brewing in November and have done 2 extract (with grains), 3 partial mash and 13 all grain BIAB. I'm addicted to this hobby and can't get enough.
My go-to brew store is Kedco in farmingdale, Dave is awesome and definitely knows his stuff. I also stop by Karps if I'm in the area for work.

Like kedco because it is close, except for there lack of liquid yeast.

any of you Suffolk county brewers do anything to your water? Been using half tap and half filtered so far and wonder if using anything will make a big difference.

No, I don't. (Though I am pretty new) A nanobrewer told me to filter it in summer, when there is more chlorine in it. But a homebrewing water engineer for SCWA told me that chlorine is very volatile, and evaporates at 80f. Apparently it also evaporates from standing water pretty quickly. Some HME recipes specify filling the top off water while boiling. I believe this is to let the chlorine evaporate. I made a grain batch that was too strong, so I tried mixing some tapwater in half the bottles. Those didn't carb well, I believe because the chlorine weakened the yeast. Had I boiled the water first, I think it would have worked.
We have excellent tap water on LI. You can access the water report for your local well on the SCWA website.
