I live in Brandon currently, I'm just trying to see if there are any brewers in the area. I have met some kit brewers, but that's all.

Hey, I just PCS'd in from Offutt, I'm at Mildenhall and we just signed a lease for a place in Brandon on Mill Hill Road. I am mostly a kit brewer, but I did keg. I got my stuff coming in TMO in April and was looking to start brewing again. I have a large garage and a spare shed I plan on building a bar and putting in another small kegerator...know where I can materials, do you do brew days, anything like that?

Yeah, but with the new baby it is hard to plan a great time to do so. I'm about to fill a keg with my st. Patrick's day brew. I do all grain. As far as material, I order online, from here or the states. If you are looking for wood, you might try thetford. B&q. Pm if you want to try and set up a brew day.

Norwich has a shop. If you want extract there is a place in bury. I order local grain from brewuk.co.UK otherwise you will have to go to far away stores, or the farms themselves. I order equipment from homebrewing.org they are cheap and ship to apo very swiftly usually twelve days. As far a fridges and freezers, I would ckeck out bookoo.com

awesome man, i haven't gotten into all grain because of my time away and just lack of time...might take a look at your set up and see what it would run me and the processes and all that.

Cool, I live in Lord's walk. $130. But if you are willing to do gas it's a lot cheaper. I do electric. I could have a better set up, but I'm cheap, and hey "why fix what's not broken." Ag does give you more control of your beer. I average about £12 a brew. Cheaper if I buy in bulk, more expensive if I need hops.

Haven't decided yet, but my next brew is either going to be an APA or centennial blonde. I could use some lighter beers, or more p.t.

I just deployed, sorry can't help, depending on where you are, there are some pretty good pubs. Bird in Hand is close, the food sucks, but its a good place for greene king beer. If you can get to cambridge, tons of good pubs.
