Default Hello from Afghanistan!

Hello! I'm s4l, I'm 21 and married with 1 son and 2 dogs. Currently serving in the US Army and am deployed to Afghanistan until next spring, which is when I intend to start brewing. I joined up to absorb as much info, hints, tips, and recipes as I can, as well as find some valuable reviews on beginner brewing kits. I absolutely love the site, very well laid out and very, very informative.

Thanks for the awesome resource!

Welcome! thanks for serving our country. I'd look into Northern Brewer, Midwest Brewing, or Austin Homebrew for a beginner kit. Cheers!

Will do! Do you have any preference over the others for customer service and shipping rates?

Thanks,

Welcome and Thank you. If your in Texas i'll definitely go with Austin home brew. Two days once they ship to your door. I never had a problem with them, and if i did they correct it instantly. Austin has flate rate, i think $8 orders under $100 and $5 for orders over $100. I might be off a little but its not bad for shipping. also, sometimes they will have a free shipping weekend ever now-and-again.

Prosit!
Dustin

You can't really go wrong with any of these. Austin would be quicker shipping to Texas, but comparing these three would be a good place. A lot of people fill the carts of all three and order the cheapest each time.

Thanks very much for the quick responses! Looks like I'll be looking into Austin then as it's only an hour from Hood. Heck, I might even drive down and pick it up.

Thanks much,

I just got back last week from afgahnastan, I was in Shindand and some other fobs up north. You can also check out morebeer, I ordered my gear before I left and it was waiting on me when I got home. I brewed my first beer today. I did a lot of research while I was there ( not like there was a lot to do ) and jumped right into all grain. Good luck and hurry home.
