Does it? im thinking about buying my grains hops and liquid yeast there. I live like 2 days UPS wise from riverside so is more beer recomended or not?

Otherwise recomend me a online brew store which sells good quality ingredients, and I can just buy yeast locally to not risk have them die on the shipping.

More Beer is good. Austin Homebrew Supply is good. Brewmasters Warehouse is good. I have no experience with them, but I hear Northern Brewer and Midwest are also good.

Are you just trying to avoid driving to Linda Vista? Everything at Home Brew Mart is good. The hops are too expensive, but everything else you're asking about is great.

I think their grain is mostly Great Western on the generic US stuff, they have rahr and a little british stuff too. I do fine with GW grain.

Yeah we do - all of our grain is the same as any other major shop, because we all move so much of it. Our hops are packaged in mylar bags that have been flushed with nitrogen to remove any oxygen and this keeps them fresh for a long time. We get two huge boxes of white labs yeast a week, so the only way to get fresher yeast would be to buy it right from White Labs

Low blow! Low blow!

We have been getting a lot better in that department, thanks to the procedures we have developed last year. I think our back order % is like 1% or something crazy. Not much when you are talking about over 5,000 sku's.
