I live about an hour south of Rochester and have been buying most of my supplies either on line or at Beers Of The World.

I love Beers of the World, but they aren't really what you would consider a full service LHBS. They don't mill grain. Nobody that I have met that works there seems to be a home brewer. They have a pretty good selection but all too often their stock isn't as fresh as I would like.

Does anybody out there know of another place to buy home brew supplies in the Rochester area or south of Rochester?

You can mill grain at sunset.

After travel costs I bet it's cheaper just to buy stuff on-line.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to check it out, I travel to the city a couple times a month for doctors visits. It would be nice to be able to pick a few things up, including a little bit of advise from someone who actually has brewed a batch of AG.

Also AJ's beverage warehouse is just down the street from sunset hydro in Henrietta and they have supplies n grain as well. you can even pick up a bunch of craft beer while you're there.

Where is AJ's Beer Warehouse? I've never heard of it. Is it on the same road as Sunset?

Sure is, from sunset hydro head south on clay rd. and it will be on your right before buy buy baby and buffalo wild wings. If you get to the jefferson Rd. intersection you have gone too far. They have a big sign that says AJ's as well. if your looking for it you wont miss it.

How close are you to Wyoming county? There is a homebrew store in Arcade, mostly wine oriented but will order anything you want. I'm going to be teaching an extract brewing class there at the end of the month and am working on starting a home brew club.

It would be farther for me to go to Arcade than to Rochester.

Thanks for the heads up though! I hope the class goes well!
