That's what the website says. I would ask for a military discount as well, never know you might get one.

I don't think it's always $7.99 flat rate to hawaii, I think I just got lucky...

I checked the shipping on some grain today and it gave me the flat rate option of course I was only looking at like 10 lbs of grain.

Old thread..

I am also preparing to move to the islands and am looking for what I should being with me to gear up. Should be boots on the ground no later than July 2015.

I am hoping to hook up with some home brewers on the dry side of Hawaii (Kona).

Bring anything you can thing of. Shipping is expensive. Sacks are usually $70 for the cheap stuff. At least on Oahu. If possible bring corny kegs. A great thing to have out here. People even sell them for a lot on craigslist. Supply and demand I guess. I would focus on any large items for brewing. Specialty malts, hops, and yeast is easy to get here for a decent price.

I will have to figure out what Corny kegs are.
I want to bring a brew rig but also anything else that is most costly to fetch. Not sure if grain will survive the journey in a shipping container. (?)

Corny or Cornelius kegs are a great alternative to bottling. I highly recommend kegging verse bottling. The grain might be okin an airtight container

Default Just moved to Oahu

Brought all my crap. Carboys are on CL all the time. Homebrewinparadise sells kits and products. Amazon is a savior with free shipping for equipment. Hard to get recipe kits shipped cheap. 25 bucks is normal for shipping for a kit. Just scored Pliny from Northern with 7.99 shipping but it's sketchy to score that deal. You need a fermenator or fridge setup. 80-90 degrees in the garage. A few notes.....you'll drink a lot of beer here. But not on the beach. FASTRACK bottle storage/dryer. Bring a few.....A garage is a luxury here if you live like a local
