Default Brewing in Las Vegas, NV?

I haven't brewed for approximately 10 years. While I have the gear, I need a store in Las Vegas, someone to talk with before I dive back into brewing.

Can you recommend a shop here in Las Vegas? Do you buy local or source on the net?

Join date of 2007, but this was your first post? Amazing. Haha.

Anyway...most of your questions will probably be better answered on these forums. I find that most LHBS's (not all) give bad information. Some of the things I overhear employees telling new brewers blows my mind.

I've learned more here than I ever did at my shop, like when they said as long as I had a 6 gallon carboy a blowoff tube wasn't necessary. I was cursing them at midnight when I was cleaning up honeyweizen off the floor! I think they all mean well though, but they do want to sell you stuff that you might not need. I find my brew shop a great place to go though when I need supplies in a pinch...

Yeah - I registered a few years ago when I found my brewing gear in the attic. I brought it down, cleaned it, and put it back. This time I'm serious ...

There is a homebrew store down on Charleston heading east a few stop lights before Decatur.

The beer club in Vegas is SNAFU, here is the HBT link: http://clubs.homebrewtalk.com/DB/Nev...evada_Ale__66/

I went to a few meetings when i moved to Vegas in January '08, but have done a horrible
job at going to meetings since... Good group of guys/gals.
