We are neck and neck with Houston status-

Our application has been sent to corporate, just waiting for approval.

I am keeping up with schaez of the Houston Grain Buy to see who's get's approved first.

I know this sucks guys, I want to be democratic about it if anyone wants to chime in. We can have a vote to stick it out some more.

All our money is sitting in my account waiting to send to my credit card once the order is placed. If we decide to cancel I will of course refund on PayPal.

I don't want to cancel personally, because we are still making progress.

Sorry to hold up everyone's cash, I honestly thought we were ready to order.

While we wait and I've got all you guys that brew in the DFW area around, what is your favorite LHBS in the area and why?

More importantly, is there a shop in DFW that is either in a more industrial area, or perhaps in a spot that is very spacious, or perhaps next to a Lowes, Home Depot, ect. The reason I ask is, I am often in the area, but I am in a truck with a 53' trailer. There are many places I can't access as dropping said trailer is never an option.

Well - at Homebrew HQ might be tough to drop a trailer. You have to navigate the city streets well off the highway on top of having limited options for parking...... However, The Winemaker's Toystore/Texas Homebrew is right off I-35E and Beltline on the North bound side. You could, and I've seen people, park their trailers on the access road and walk over to the business park.

As far as a favorite - I like both of them for different reasons. Homebrew Headquarters seem to stock more hardware (pumps, mills, etc.) and The Winemaker's Toystore is easier for me to get to from where I live. Their prices are comparable overall....one store may be a little higher than the other on various items, but I've never found a huge difference in pricing OVERALL for a particular grain bill. Others may have a different experience though....just my $0.02.

I really appreciate the input. I drove by Austin Home brew once, and decided against parking in the street. Learn to Brew in OKC would be sketchy. Texas Homebrewing at Beltline sounds worth checking out.
