Thanks Mateo, I met a bunch of cool homebrew guys and want to send them some American craft beers that are nearly impossible to find in Brazil. What carrier would you normally use (UPS, FEDEX, etc.)?

Just use the post office. That is how we send stuff all the time. Works great!

Hi all! New to the site, but glad to be here!

I'm moving to Campinas (near Sao Paulo) in a few weeks- any home brewers or supplies to be found nearby?

Obrigado!!

Hmm, great news. Campinas is the right place for homebrewers. There is a supply shop, soon to be two. There´s also a lot of homebrewers in the region, as well as a homebrew club I am part of. Contact me when you get there (my phone is (16)9211-7255) or get into the site (ACervA Paulista) and contact us from there.

Even though I've found for myself how great this forum is,it never ceases to amaze me how many folks around the world agree! I was just musing what it might be like to add some of that blue corn y'all grow down there to a mash. Might be interesting...a different sort of Chicha.

Do yourself a favor and check out "Cerveja Universitaria", Avenida Albino José Barbosa de Oliveira, 1250. The brew master is a great guy and the beer is excellent. It's right there in Campinas.

unionrdr,

I grew a lot of corn in Brazil and none of it was blue. I think you are thinking about those indians way up north in Mexico, which is in the northern hemi.

They grow blue (purple?) corn in Peru and Bolivia as well, not too far from you. They are very sweet its juice is very popular.

Peru! That was it,peruvian blue (lolz). My bad,wrong country. We have a peruvian lady that comes to our international food festival in Lorain,Ohio that makes a sweet drink out of it. Man,that's good stuff. I thought it might be good in a lager?...

Any Rio homebrewers here? I've been homebrewing for about 4 years, and I'm moving to Rio in about a month. How are you guys getting ingredients (shops, mail order,etc)? Is there anything I should bring down with me that's not available down there?

Thanks,
Jeremiah
