Default Awesome supply site

If you like higher end stuff you have to peruse this site! It is awesome and the prices are very good.

Especially check out the thermometers!!!!!! and everything else. This site ranges from the ridiculously high end to the homebrew applicable.

Yeah, St. Pats gets mixed reviews from a lot of people that used them for parts while building their brewstands. I fall into the "I didnt have any problems" camp, but I think the "Bad Service" camp is running away with it.

So I consider myself lucky. I got what I ordered and in a reasonable time.

Let's just say that St. Pats is the Dick's Last Resort of brewing supply. The food may be decent, but the experience is all about the service.

Check, so really crappy service should be assumed and find somewhere else to take my business at all costs.

They had a lot of fittings at one time and I noticed their stock has become limited. I ordered two thermowells from them at one time and some SS fittings. Both orders were delivered in a reasonable amount of time. So i got lucky.

I have since changed thermowell, so if you were looking at their thermowells I have 2 I'd be willing to trade or let go cheap.

It is ashamed about St Pats. They used to be a very good homebrew store.

Most of their gear appears to be aimed at the microbrewery market, not the home brewery market. There's some fine looking stuff on their website though that would work for either purpose. But if service is bad, it's a non-starter in my opinion.
