also try www.northernbrewer.com. i think my first extract kit was a Coopers Old ale? also, get pellet hops to add to the boil. those pre-hopped extract kits don't have enough to make a noticable difference. it will help w/ bitterness and aroma.

try www.byo.com and do a search for homebrew shops. they list 'em all over the country.

good luck and keep us posted!

About 1.5 is all we've got too, and I'm pretty sure Houston is a bit bigger than Fuquay-Varina.

I was taking into account my willingness to drive anywhere in the greater Triangle area of ~1M (still smaller than greater Houston, but dang!).

You want to open a shop with me, BeeGee? We could have it open in the evenings to get all the business that American Brewmaster misses with their restricted hours.

Sounds good to me...could be a good gig! It seems like the last time I was in AB I remember seeing something about them staying open later one night and thinking I could actually get there after work without a special weekend trip, but for the life of me I can't remember the details.
