Welcome.

When you go to Mr. Steve's tell him the guy from IL said hello...he'll know who you're talking about.

How's so? What's wrong with it?

I've visited the original store many times before he moved over by the mall in York.

So your saying the new place in Lancaster is bad?

Another nearby brewer

I moved from Lancaster to Lebanon last year. I've been hitting up Lancaster Homebrew lately and they've been pretty good to me. Mark is a super nice guy and pretty accommodating. I'm still relatively new to brewing (just tossed batch #6 into the primary on saturday). There really are a ton of resources available on the forums

I've been to the three main stores in the relative area, Lancaster Homebrew, Mr Steve's, and Scotzin Bros. I hit up Mark at Lancaster Homebrew a lot since I go to HACC Lancaster 4 days a week. If Mark doesn't have what you need there's a pretty large store in Lemoyne called Scotzin Bros. They have weird ass hours though. Wednesday and Saturdays only.

Anyhow I'm only 45 min a way depending on how fast you drive on 283.

Smokinghole,
I have to say that I absolutely love your username!
4 days a week you are two minutes from me. Just moved to LS. It's nice to know a local.
I'll have to try out the Scotzin place.
Thanks!

Good luck with your batch!
Hopefully I'll be up and running by Sunday. I still have a few supplies to get.
I'll be at Homebrew on Saturday getting ready!

Welcome! I'm from Lanco as well, Marietta to be exact.

Lancaster Homebrew is a great store. Mark is great, tries to know all this regulars and semi-regulars (like me).

I will say, homebrewing is like crack, you WILL get hooked.

I bought all my equipment and made a batch, fully intended to make a batch every 2 months or so. 2 months later, and 3 batches later....

I've been to the Lancaster store once, and had a semi-bad experience. I only shop at Lancaster Home Brew now.

Perhaps some sort of local homebrewers cookout is in order this summer...
