    I just hope that we don't get the "hammered nail" treatment because we are discussing this out
    in the open. There are other active homebrewers around but they don't publicly discuss it much
    as to avoi...

    Great thread! I heard about this thread from a facebook post on freezing yeast. I've been
    homebrewing in Japan, (Kashiwa in Chiba prefecture) for a few years now. Another great place
    for cheap supplie...

    questions (better late than never, I guess!) Homebrewing is still very minor here. Some
    hardware stores will...

    That actually looks awesome. I bet it costs an arm and a leg though like everything else here.
    Where is it located at?Kiuchi (aka Hitachino Nest is in Ibaraki prefecture. If you take the
