Working in Richardson is convenient to HBHQ. They are great people and taught me to brew! Kelly appreciates the money! Let's keep him in business!!

Brown ales are good, Belgian wits seem to go like clockwork and the yeast like higher fermentation temps... My personal favorites are Irish Reds, though. (Well, aside from Marzen / Oktoberfest styles, but those are lagers.)

The only thing I havent bought from him at this point is the turkey burner, everything else is all HQ. SWMBO went in there to get the stuff for our last batch, they were real cool with her. Gonna need more carboys and bottles, so he's got a little more of my paycheck coming soon!

Dude that's funny, I was in HBHQ a couple weeks ago at like 5-6pm and there was a woman buying stuff basically reading a list off her smart phone and they were helping her figure it out, I figured some homebrewer had sent her to get stuff for a batch. I've taken my wife there a couple times to buy soda stuff; actually now that I think of it HBHQ is closer to my wife's work than mine so maybe I should start sending her, then at least she can't claim I'm hiding hobby expenses from her.

IPAs are great. When I was a new brewer, a guy at my LHBS said that IPAs are especially good for newbies b/c the hoppiness can mask many imperfections that might come up while you're learning the process.

That DEFINITELY wasnt my wife - she's just as into it as I am, which helps out a ton when it comes to dropping cash. We're still pretty new, so we're both asking a ton of questions and those guys are always happy to help.
