Wichita! I would enjoy seeing what others do. A few friends and I started brewing beer, but mostly have gotten info from the internet and youtube videos. Still, our three beers have been pretty decent.

Scottsaxman, yeah the WHO meets monthly. We meet in an anex of the brewery/pizza place on Tyler. The WHO also has a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/wichitahomebrewers

I've been brewing for about 1.5 years now.. I "think" I'm getting the hang of it. My oatmeal stout scored a 42 at the NHC. I've now gotten two of my friends hooked on home brewing

I'm in Olathe. Just saw this thread. How many folks on the KS side of the state line here in KC?

One of the Wichita homebrew club members is from Dodge City. You are not entirely alone out there!

Hey Kansas, I'm currently in the beer paradise of Colorado, but lived in KS for many years. Kinsley, Larned, Lyons, Buhler, Nickerson, And Hutchinson. When I was there, brewing supplies were hard to find and I found myself Mail ordering (before the internet) from the Brew Hut In Aurora. SWMBO and I have considered retiring in Hutchinson, and I am wondering what the home brewing community is like now. Especially in Hutch. Where do you get your supplies, and is there a decent brew pub, or other establishment that serves good craft beer. If all you got is BMC, than I might as well stay here. I appreciate any feedback, and I do miss the wheat. Cheers.

Chessking, I had a message typed up n then thought it was overly critical of Hutch. Then luck would have it, we went there this weekend. Hutch sucks. I grew up not too far outside of it and it's just got worse n worse. There are some good subculture kinds of things I saw but it didn't look like prosparity was coming any time soon.. Its better up north and we were looking for old furniture to modify for a house project on the southside. It looks like Tony Flores(sp) has a nice pocket around the anchor inn (pretty good Mexican food) but tough elsewhere.

You should consider a bit north and retire in Manhattan; it's really becoming a nice place (it's had good growth since I was in college in the late 80s), and Tallgrass Brewery is there. Not entirely sure about homebrew shops, as I live in Olathe (which has several). Worst-case would be Topeka, but I think I heard about a shop in Manhattan somewhere...
