This section of the board seems to rarely see anything new.

How many people here are in the Albany area? I'm about 45 minutes away myself, but Albany is the closest thing to me worth mentioning, so there you have it, who's out there?

Fort Plain, 45 minutes West of Albany. Just starting brewing this year so I'm still learning a lot.

I'm from Wells, NY about a 75 minute drive to Albany. It's in Hamilton County (Pop. 4700 for the whole county) of the southern Adirondacks about 35 minutes north of Gloversville or 45 minutes north of Amsterdam. My closest LHBS is in the Albany area.

Would love to participate in group buys.

Steve, I believe there is a small LHBS that just opened up, or is opening up in Johnstown. AJ Brew Supplies? Something like that anyway. Probably won't have the selection the Albany/Saratoga stores have at 1st. The Little Falls Co-Op (Herkimer County) also has some brew supplies and they will order something if they don't have it. I work in Albany and travel back to Canajoharie-Fort Plain, so if you ever need anything down this way maybe I can help out.

I'd love the opportunity to sit-in on a brew session sometime with some of the more experienced brewers around here.

I believe you are right did some goggling but did not come up with it

I buy my horse feed over in the Palatine Bridge area shop in fort plain from time to time

I work down in Albany also but have not checked out the brew shops down there

I have been buying my stuff online , just got a keg setup from Keg Connection

ordered on Tuesday they shipped on Wednesday here on Saturday by FedEx

packed great , shipped quick and at a great price

will be shopping with them again for sure

I have not started to brew yet but will be in the next couple of weeks I am still waiting on a few pieces of equipment

just ordered a a 64 quart pot to boil in as I want to do ten gallon batches, a 13 gallon fermenter

I will start with a extract kit, then do a partial mash and hopefully move to doing all grain

also working on getting my space setup to work also looking for a deal on a chest freezer

I'll keep an eye out for the home-brew shop. Like brew_ny, I couldn't find it with a google search. Because of my remote location, I get most of my gear and ingredients online, but I try to drop money at LHBS as I can. Thanks for the offer to pick up supplies!

I just started this year too, but I am planning my 12th batch for tomorrow. I've learned a lot along the way.
