Im back in Germany finally and just ordered 10 pounds of hops from Nikobrew. Gonna make a best malz grain run next week and get some yeast from hopfen und mehr. Need to figure out temp control for the fermenator, may just do a couple ales first since we have a room holding right about 62 degrees right now it will be perfect. I need to get the Oktoberfest going soon though. Anyone know anyone with a full sized fridge big enough to hold a 14.5 gallon conical for sale?

Made a run to Best Malz in Wallertheim today...Finally almost ready to brew. Process was easy, just a phone call to arrange pickup, has to be M-F between 0700-1430 though.

Its about 35 minutes, right near where A63 and A61 split. They also sell at Heidelberg I think, not sure how far that is from K-town. Prices are excellent, about 24 dollars a bag for base malts.

Hi. Glade you found this place. Whenever you get back, let me know when you want to brew.


How many of us is there here from the Ktown area? We should make a unofficial club up and get a Facebook group going. Anyone think that would be a good idea?

Sounds good. From the looks of this thread I think there should probably be enough of us to start a small club. I'll have to send you a message once i get back to start brewing.

Living in Wörrstadt is probably too far for you Ramstein/k-town guys to make the trip up to drink but I plan on starting Picnic table Fridays to empty my kegs as soon as the pipeline gets going. I brewed Monday and have 10 gallons of falconers flight IPA going. Still need to work out a kegerator and co2 pretty quick but will brew again as soon as the fermenator is empty. I'll start posting brew days so you guys can hang out, brew, or drink

And if y'all organize a little club, I'd happily come down and hang out once a month or so, bring beers to share, and of course drink all of your beers
