Hi Folks,
Anyone if Philly with tips on where to get supplies? I'll be moving in the fall and am looking to continue cider making and to get started in brewing beer.

Keystone Homebrew. It's in Montgomeryville about 20 miles north of Phila. They have everything.

All good suggestions. Another one to onsider, depending on where in Philly you will be is one in Westmont,NJ BYOB. It is just minutes from both the Walt Whitman and Ben Franklin bridges. East to get to.

The guys at Barry's Homebrew are great and they have a pretty decent selection. Seems like every time I go in they have something new. Keystone is bigger and worth checking out but not necessarily local if you're in Philly. Gotta figure it takes 15 minutes to get 3 miles in much of the city due to lights and traffic. As far as grain goes, I buy most of my base malts from the group buy on here.

+1 for keystone, slection is better than the 5 or so other shops I've been too and at least the gentlemen I dealt with was VERY knowledgable and more than willing to spend an hour+ with me.

What is this "little convention" you speak of?

I live NE of Philly in Bucks County, use Wine, Barley and Hops usually. In Feasterville. Princeton Homebrew is closer but I had a few odd experiences there so I stick to the other one.

I'd have to vote for keystone. Until recently, I would drive from newark to montgomeryville just to hit up keystone.
