For any brewers new to Okinawa looking for a place to fill tanks, this is what I've found out. Okano Gas Company (link below) will fill your U.S. tank after it passes inspection. The inspection costs around $42 and takes about 3-4 weeks; it's good for 4 years. Once it passes inspection, you must pay an additional $6 for certification. Certification is good for one year and you must present it to Okano each time you want your tank filled. After the certification is no longer valid you just pay another $6 for new certification paperwork. It costs less than $20 to fill a 5lb tank.

As far as ingredients go, I'm ordering from Jasper's Homebrew and Wine Making (link below). They shipped after 1 day. They have a good selection of kits that they build once ordered.

There is also a local nano brewery; Okinawa Brewing Company. They may be willing to provide a yeast sample if you ask nicely, but I cannot confirm this (link also below). Their tap room opens the weekend of the 18th; located right outside of Torii Station.

Hey all, I know this thread is a bit old, but if any of you island brewers are still around, perhaps you could help me locate some carboys on Okinawa? I'm not sure they would arrive in good condition, or at all if I tried Amazon.

Hello, I know this thread has been dead for a long time. I just moved to Okinawa 2 weeks ago. I'm still waiting on my brew supplies to show up. Just wondering if there is anyone else in the kadena area brewing beer?

I PCS'd a while back but if you go to Face Book (Okinawa Brewing Enthusiast Entertainment and Recreation) you can link up with the local brewers.

Check the Japan group and the Homebrewing in Japan thread by OppamaBrendan. Several active members spread out across Japan on here, but FB groups seem to have waaaay more.
