Battle of the Brews is Delaware for sure, but War of the Worts is held each year by Keystone Hops. It is atleast local if not Delaware specific. War of the Worts is a large event.

Hi all. Got my first 5 gallon batch in the primary for two weeks. I really want to bottle, but decided to give it one more week. I think I joined FSB but I haven't been to a meeting yet. I plan on attending this month's at How Do You Brew. I'll probably pick up a carboy and some ingredients to brew more.

Cheers!

Newark homebrewer here. Been brewing about 4 +/- years...averaging about a batch a year, but plan to bump that up considerably soon.

I've been getting my supplies from How Do You Brew. Does anyone use another vendor that might be cheaper?

Greetings. I'm in Bear. I've gotten some recipe kits from Northern Brewer and Austin Homebrew Supply. AHS kits have free shipping. If you subscribe or create an account with online suppliers you can pick up some deals on kits and other things via email. I've also purchased individual supplies and a kit from How Do You Brew. I hope others chime in because I'm kind of brewing on a budget and would love to find other resources.

Annapolis homebrew is where I buy all of my stuff from. They are just over the bay bridge if you want to drive, but offer $7.95 flat rate shipping and if you order today you'll receive your package tomorrow. I can't speak highly enough of them.

This may be a rare case where the shipping cost is cheaper then driving. Bay Bridge toll $6 plus gas to an from is over $7.95! Morebeer also opened a warehouse on the east coast and offer free shipping over 59 or something like that.

Haha, you are definitely right!! I only drive if there is something that I want right now and can't wait until tomorrow.

Anapolis Homebrew seems to be on the higher end of the price range. Sure, they're cheaper on shipping than the other guys, but way over on their ingredients. I guess one plus to their side is they certainly seem to have their fair share of pre-made kits to choose from. Its been a while since i've been to HDYB, but I think they're cheaper than AH.

Annapolis all the way. I don't do the shipping. It's easier just to go out there. Not too far for a trip every now and then and a good area.

Annapolis has very knowledgable people. Cheaper than anyone else local. A large stock of supplies. Very friendly too. So, just the opposite of Extreme Brewing here in lower DE. I wouldn't buy a air stopper from Extreme just so they wouldn't get my money.
