Default Hello and where to get stuff from US

Hi

Homebrewer in Yugawara, Kanagawa here!
Great event in Yokohama Sunday.

I know some Japan sources such as Asahi Malt and Advanced Brewing.

www.brewershardware.com and
www.brewmasterswarehouse.com will ship to Japan.

Any recommended others?

I want to buy some 13L better bottles, immersion chiller, mashtun and parts and sparger, bottle washer and possible Malt and Hops.

Please let me know what you think.

Spiral

Welcome to the thread Spiral! There is also a Japan group you can join here, most of the people in this thread are in that group now.

Im slowly putting together previous posts' information to make it easier to find and get started. I hope to wrap it up and post it soon but have been kept busy with other stuff lately. I don't know a reliable source for a bottle washer, seems everytime I look the few places that have them listed are sold out. Mash coolers, sparger parts, & copper tubing to build an immersion chiller is available at hardware stores and online hardware suppliers. Will post some links soon sorry for delays guys.

Hey all!

Sorry for the delay, but I've posted a rough draft of a tutorial for using Japanese servers/dispensers, with photos. It's in the Japan group section.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/groups/j...tutorial-2656/

Unfortunately, each post is limited to 1,000 characters, so please bear with me on this. Any comments are welcome. I'll eventually move it to the tutorial section.

Nice post and photos! Awesome Timing too! I just finished the "resources" files for the group and edited it into the first post for this thread. I will post it in the group as well.
Now I can get off the damn computer haha!
Cheers,
B

Thanks for the welcome!

I think there was a misunderstanding. I was looking for US suppliers that will ship to Japan.
I'll add morebeer.com to the list.

Cheers

Ok, I changed the spreadsheet to list what country the resource is shipping from, and added a few that I had missed. I think most of us are trying to show the local brew-suppliers some love as they are helping to legitimize the hobby here. They do not carry every thing that we could wish for however so its worth listing other sources that can.
It might take a few minutes for the file to synch properly, depending what browser I use to open it, it either shows the old or new file even when I hit reload.
Cheers.
B

Anyone going to the taproom today? It's homebrews appreciation day from 2-5pm. At the nakameguro taproom.

Did a trip to Costco and picked up some Numans Own 100% Concord grape juice. It was 2 bottles X 2.84 Liters for 968 yen, so about 170 yen per liter. I am sure if I do a search I will find wine recipes using this stuff.

Another trip to "Green Farm" where I picked up a small blackberry cutting. I hope the blackberry grows as vigorously here as they do in Vancouver!

PS, Antenna America is open now just a minute walk from Bay Brewing in Yokohama. I haven't been there yet but it should be a decent shop for import beers!
