Any of you Fresno brewers been to Benecomes? (if that is how you spell it) Thinking about taking a trip up there to get some yeast this weekend. Just wondering how the shop is.

I'm not a fan really. It's dirty and they will constantly try to get you to buy different grains/hops/yeast than what you're looking for if they don't have what you want. That being said, they're all we've got in the Central Valley. What yeast are you looking for?

I'm getting ready to brew a red hook ESB clone... I really like the wyeast activators, and Midwest recommends the American ale... I might get the American ale II for its high flocc rate

They are nice and helpful but the place could be cleaner and more professional.

I live in Lemoore. I only know one or two homebrewers. Nice to see there are a few more.

Im in Dublin. Do you go to hoptech for your supplies? NOBODY can beat Jade and Robeerto on customer service!
I'm also in Dublin, and +1 for Hoptech & Jade & Robeerto! The best LHBS! They got me off to a great brewing start.
