I was thinking the same thing.

I used to live in DC, and learned how to homebrew from the guys at the Flying Barrel in Frederick. They do brew-on-premises, providing all of the materials, equipment, and know-how to get you started. Plus they have a homebrew shop that's pretty nicely stocked (not as good as online vendors, but pretty good nonetheless). I can't recommend them enough for a beginning brewer.

Hmmm that's a lil far but ill have to look into that. What's the cost for their brew-on-premise service? Thanks a lot for the info by the way!

Here's their website: http://www.flyingbarrel.com/brew_on_premise.htm

I think it's about $100 for a 5 gallon batch. $175 for a 10 gallon batch. That's all in (extract, hops, yeast, equipment, bottles, etc.). But you should know that they only do extract batches there.

That sounds like a good time. And a very knowledgeable one as well. I'm going to try to plan a trip out that way here soon. Thanks for the heads up.

I've been there several times. New place. The owners are nice, knowledgeable & they seem to have the customer service aspect well in hand. They just started up their brew-on-premisis operation, but I have no knowledge of the pricing.

They have a good selection of ingredients & such & their prices are competitive.

Thanks a lot. That's very close to my unit and I'll be sure to check it out one weekend I'm down that way.

Thirsty Brewer is great. You can tell the staff loves what they do and are great resources. Good prices and selection of ingredients (I'm an extract brewer, so take that for what it is). I've seen some negative comments about the place online, disregard these. Yes, you have to go down cement stairs that always seem to be wet to an unmarked steel door. However, isn't feeling like a bootlegger part of the charm of what we do?

There are a couple of us in Cecil County - so welcome to the "club". I started with a MR. Beer a few years ago and now - well let's just say MR. Beer is an entry level drug.

I second How Do You Brew - great folks and always willing to do special orders if you need.

I also second the buy gear carefully thought above. I spent a good bit of $$ finding my way early on - could have been better spent on better gear with some more experience under my belt.

Have fun!

I just started brewing myself, I'm also in cecil county. I did my first brew last weekend, a red ale from a best brewers kit and I did my second last night/this morning, following an extract recipe for a strawberry blonde, tho I suppose at this point it's just a blone as I haven't added the strawberries yet.

I've made two trips to How Do You Brew and they seem knowledgeable and helpful, I may check out some of the other stores in PA and the surrounding area just to see how they are. I have been researching and looking into geting into this hobby for a few years and I just wish I did it sooner. I want to brew everything, I wish I could brew all the time lol. I'm gonna run out of room for fermentation and such.
