no homebrew party is a shop in San Antonio. I am the current president of BASH, were no foam rangers or austin zealots, but it is a cool time, http://beer-bash.com/. There is always some good homebrew going around, meeting on the 12th.

CCbrewer, I'm not a member of bash, but after talking with Hopsalot at B&Js. I'm going to hit up the next meeting and check it out. I've been running solo here in Corpus for to long. Time to brew with some brewers vise my neighbors drinking my beer while they watch me brew.

Hopsalot, yep Homebrew party. 49 a bag for British malt and 40 a bag for Briess American. Taking the family up to Six flags going to pick up a few bags. Thinking about trying to put together a CC group buy. I'm sure we can get the cost below 40. Heck I'll even drive an pick it up for everybody.

Paul at liquid town seems like a super nice guy. I've talked to him a few times. I just don't think they can order enough grains to offset the shipping cost. My first quote was 2 row 1.40 a pound, no matter how much you buy. A few calls later, they quoted me 58 a bag for American and 80 something for British. Even if I ordered 4 bags.

I'll admit I'm a bit of a LHBS snob. I was stationed in San Diego and Everett Washington. Lots of major breweries in the back and major homebrew shops in the front. I was paying 35-37 bucks a bag for grain. .90 cents if I only need a few pounds.

Liquid Town is a liquor store first home brew / cigar shop second. I don't think you can serve three masters and be good to all three. Plus, I don't think they are turning over much grain. Not their fault..there is no market down here for all grain. The specialty malts were all over the place and looked a little old to me. Don't shoot me just my opinion. I'd rather stock up when I hit San Antonio, brew a ton and drink aged beer, vise using old ingredients. Plus even with shipping I can get it online cheaper.

I agree, Liquid town is nice in a pinch, but they are expensive. 10.99 for a ball lock disconnect..... I mean... keep small inventory and get the cost low... but I can get it cheaper from amazon even with shipping...


Paul I guess thought I was full of poopoo when I said I was jumping straight into all grain... he laughed when I said I had a lead on 1/2bbl kegs in austin he smiled real wide when I said I had purchased them for $30/ea and got them down here and was converting them to keggles.

He laughed in my face when I said I was getting ball locks for under $45 shipped to my door in Grade A+ condition...

I don't fault him, if I were not me I'd think I was full of poopoo too, but I just placed an order today for 6-ball locks shipped $217 thats pressure checked and cleaned out.

He seem like a great guy, knows his stuff, and I respect that. I am just a little put off by him. I guess you can understand why.

I am in there twice a week getting this or that, but I have most of my stuff already.

Heck I just got a heck of a deal on co2 regulators (5) dual gauge for $78 shipped.

I am going to have two for my kegerator im going to build already bought the 5.4 chest freezer for $125.


I do need to get some grain and sell this drum kit I have taking up space LOL

anyone trade beer stuff for a drum kit?
