Hi Kasrkin, Bob Carbone(pronounced Carboney) in Grand Cane has a small operation where he sells beer supplies and ingredients out of a shed at his house. it sounds kinda funny but it is a legit operation. He won AHA's gold medal in 2003 or something like that. I got the chance to try it while I was out there. It was quite amazing! Anyway look him up on google to get his number. He is a super nice guy and really knows his stuff. I emailed him a recipe and by the time I got there he had it all together and crushed the grains for me right there. Anytime I need something I try to go through him to support the local scene. Spread the word!

Just want to post the name and address for anyone that googles home brew shop shreveport.

855 Pierremond Rd. #124 in Shreveport's Town Oaks Square shopping center (next to Superior Steakhouse).

The owner is very friendly and helpful. Not to mention they have great prices.

Do you guys have a name and ph.# for this place? I stopped by over at Bob's shop yesterday in Grand Cane and he told me that he shut the shop down jan. 1st...retired. Sad cause that was my closest HBS and he's a cool dude. He told me there was a shop in Shreveport but didnt have the number or adress at hand.


Thanks,
