Welcome! I think you'll like the Kaiserslautern area, lots of biking/hiking trails, breweries in every town, and it doesn't rain quite as much as in Belgium. And if you get homesick (or sick of German beer), Brussels is only a 3 hour drive away.

Where are you stationed? LRMC? Vogelweh?

Send me a PM when you get moved and we'll grab a Maß or two!

Hey, I'm a ways away from Ktown and preparing to head south for a few months, but once i get back, ill have my bro and sister in law up at Ramstein to visit monthly. I'm a little taken back that you think the beer here is awesome, but that's for another forum. If you use the google web page translate the hobby brewer site is alright. We use Northern Brewer to order just because they have quick shipping. Let me know if you find an actual homebrew store.

The only problem I ran into with equipment was with the faucets. My plate chiller/bottle washer connectors didn't fit, Germany being metric and all. I'm sure there are adapters somewhere on line, I just deal with the leaking by throwing a towel over the faucet. Also, the fittings for CO2 tanks are different, if you have a kegerator; I had an adapter made for that. PM me if you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to help with the transition.

I didn't even think of the wort chiller. I don't have a co2 system yet but really want to get one. What about propane? do they run the same connections as the american connections or will I need to find a different "turkey fryer" setup over there?

No worries, you can get 'merican propane tanks here on base.

Had this site recommended to me https://www.hobbybrauerversand.de/ its call Hops and More or HuM for short. 5 Euro flat shipping in Germany and if they don't have it they will get it from BROUWLAND or CANDIRECT for no additional cost then what the two companies offer.

Man, this thread brings back memories. We lived in K-town 85-89. I worked on the hill in Landstuhl and my wife worked down in Pirm. Didn't know anything about brewing back then. Didn't know what a hop was, so in my ignorance I enjoyed as much brewskie as I could back then. I must say, weizenbocks, bocks, altbiers, and dunkels are still some of my favs. Ya'll enjoy your tours, wish we could get back over there some day.
