Willkommen!

I'm about 30 minutes from there, I work at the military hospital in Landstuhl. It's a beautiful area, and drinking is part of the culture in these parts so there are a lot of small breweries to hang out in. Not much in the way of big cities, though Trier gets its share of punk shows if your user name is any indication as to what kind of music you like. And if you like beer fests, there's a huge one in Stuttgart in September that rivals Oktoberfest. Shoot me a PM when you get here and we'll grab a pint!

Best Malz Rauch malt is better anyway though in my opinion Never used their 2 row before but I always used their wheat and pils malt in the states too.
I have used their pils malt several times(three 55lb sacks worth) in the states, I was very happy with it.

Glad i found this thread. I live in the Kaiserslautern/Ramstein area. I do all grain 5 gal batches here. I saw several posts about CO2 bottles. The best thing is to buy a European tank and regulator ( you can swap regulator nuts to use your US regulator). There is a bar supply store in K-town, and a welding supply shop that will refill bottles as long as they are European. I went through the US/metric thing a few months back. I just completed my keeper this weekend and have an IPA and a Belgian in it ready to go. I have an Irish red in secondary and about to do some cider soon. It would be nice for us in the K-town area to get together and brew sometime!

Socal, can you tell me where this bar supply store is? Do they sell co2 bottles there also?

I seen a couple places online here that sell co2 bottles I need to get one of them soon. I still don't have a fridge/kegorator yet so I am not in to big of a hurry though.

I would like to get together for a brew day. I have a few empty fermenters so maybe soon we should brew.

I will be on the next plane burning from Afghan back to Germany, hopefully tonight. I am looking to try and get my first Germany brew going maybe the 11th of May, although that is still very much up in the air. Ill start posting my brew days, probably will typically be Saturdays and anyone is welcome to come by and throw back some brew and laugh at me when I boil over. Worrstadt is about a half hour from Ramstein and I guess just a little closer from K'town. I will likely be brewing every couple weeks for a few months to get the pipeline going again (of course need to get an Oktoberfest going now my annual Wilkestoberfest party)

Dirty25, the store is called Walter Busch & Söhne. they sell CO2 bottles there as I bought my 3kg bottle from them. The bottle was about 100 euros and came filled.
