Unless what I need is extremely cheaper online, I always try to support them and buy what I need there. Karps is also pretty good for used kegs and liquid yeast.
I used to go out of the way to go to Brooklyn Homebrew for everything, but got tired of making the trip all the way out to the ass end of Brooklyn all the time. I just go there when I'm looking for something exotic that most of the homebrew shops on LI don't carry. I live about 15 minutes from Kedco and have been frequenting them a lot lately. They are really nice, helpful, and know their stuff . I should have been going there from the start because they have a nice little homebrew shop there!

Being in Brooklyn I have to say that I'm unimpressed with Brooklyn Homebrew, despite its claim to being the best homebrew shop in the city. The whole staff there exudes the typical snobbish brooklynite attitude which makes its uncomfortable asking for help. My favorite place to go here is called Bitter and Esters. Its owned and operated by a bunch of beer nerds who brew on premise. Stop in anytime and they'll share samples of what they've got on tap with you while answering your questions, helping you pick out the right ingredients for your recipe and just shooting the ****. They even hold classes and events regularly to help brewers on their journey towards better beer. All in all, very cool place. If any of you are ever in Brooklyn you should definitely check it out.

Their website: beermalt.org doesn't seem to be up right now but that's where I usually find out where the next meeting is.
I'm in Ronkonkoma, been brewing a little over a year (extract) and also a member of LIBME.

The site is up, but there is an issue where it's not redirecting you when you go to the Beermalt.org domain. You can visit it here: https://sites.google.com/site/beermalt/home

Next meeting March 6th at The Good Life in Massapequa.

They do raffles nearly every meeting for tickets to events, hard to get beer, and homebrew supplies.

No membership fees to join the meetings, but for $25 you get a charter membership which includes discounts at some craft bars and Distributers.

I have been meaning to go to one of these meetings for a long time. Maybe I'll stop by this one and check it out.

Please do!

There is usually drink specials or a special beer on tap (sometimes on cask) directly from a local brewery for the meeting.

First half hour or so is socializing, next half hour to an hour is the meeting itself followed by a demonstration (not every meeting has a Demo) then more socializing.

Oh, and drinking too.

BTW -- If anyone asks for you to introduce yourself, do so and let them know you're "Here for the beer"

Hope to see you there!

Yes , I do

1 in the basement and a hard wired one on the second floor. It went off twice when I had the 23 tip burner, which also left a lot of soot. Changing too 10 although takes a little longer creates no soot and carbon dioxide sensor happy. The basement is only accessible through bilco doors which I leave open when I brew.

co detectors sound off at 35ppm.7ppm over time will make you very sick
I am a building analyst so I can measure this.I recently measured 7ppm in the top floor of my house after brewing in my garage[attached] with the door half open. I now have a fan set up and no co. Please consider using a fan to ventilate the basement
