Default Okinawa home brewer

Just getting started going to make a trip to mak-man today to see what they have instead of buying a kit and paying the shipping. Is there anywhere on the island that sells supplies for home brewing?

Im here in Okinawa and am in the same boat as Keith I think I have a hook up for getting a kit shipped at a good price from the states, just wondering if anyone know if they ship corny kegs to APO. Also a good place to get a 5 gallon stainless pot, I guess I could check the BX... Thanks for any help.

I ordered a Pale Ale kit (extract) from Morebeer on the 23rd and received it on the 30th. $51 total for the kit and shipping, a little expensive but not too bad IMO. I talked to More before leaving San Diego and they said they had no problem shipping to an FPO AP. I now have 2 Pale Ale's, an IPA, a Stout and a Common Brown waiting to be brewed (extract and all grain).

I think I am going to brew up a couple extract kits to get my pipeline going again (PX beer selection sucks) and then I have to put together my all grain equipment (keggles need to be drilled for valves, sight glasses, false bottom etc). We ended up in housing on Kadena, do you have base access?

Default okinawa too

I just registered with homebrewtalk, but have used a lot of the advice/recipes on the forum here. I live in Okinawa and have a couple of extract kits that I plan on getting started now that the weather is a little cooler. I would like to eventually move to partial-mash or full mash if I can find ingredients here on the island. Maybe eventually I'll move to forced carbonation...

I have gone to makeman's at American village, but didn't find anything specific to homebrewing (like yeast, extracts, bottles, carboys, etc.). Anyone else on the island find a place to buy equipment/ingredients?

Not too new to Island, but fairly new to brewing. I'm planning a Keezer build next month, OYS chest freezer pendng. I get my supplies from Midwestsupplies.com, and shipping isn't too expensive, and doesn't take long. My only issue with the Keezer, is the CO2 tanks. You guys said earlier that its pretty easy to rent tanks vs. getting American tanks filled? would they have 5# tanks or a similar volume? And has anyone checked Typhoon motors or equivelant welding shops for fills? Sorry for the long response
