Yup! There is a fledgling club (CC Black hops) that met last week out at Elk Creek. I had a rehearsal so couldn't make it. They aren't good at posting details on their bulletin board, I think most is via email and I haven't gotten on that list yet.

I'm in State College! Brand new brewer. Curious where people get their supplies around here. Made a trip out to Nittany Valley True Value - seems OK for equipment, especially if you need a something small and don't want to pay shipping, but not much of anything in terms of ingredients.

Closest place that I know of is Bald Eagle Brewing Co. in Mifflinburg. I haven't been there though. You have to call (570) 966-3156, they don't respond to emails.

I just ordered some grain from Homebrew4less.com in Chambersburg, PA. I also like Keystone Homebrew Supply in Bethlehem. Something I have wanted to do is see if Otto's would order grain. Anybody ordered grain from Otto's?

Cheers,

Thanks!

Was recently in Mifflinburg for the Christmas market, but didn't know there was an HBS there. Kind of a haul from SC, but I'm in Millheim frequently enough and will have to drive the extra miles to check it out.

Has anyone used Otto's as a source for grain?

Once or twice about 5 yrs ago. A buddy of mine set it up. He's not brewing much these days. I got the impression it wasn't something they were interested in doing on a regular basis. Perhaps if you know the folks there well.
