I live in Nassau county and haven't been able to find a LHBS. I have been out to Karps hardware store a few times and considered driving into Brooklyn. Does anyone have any Suggestions for a "local" shop. Also has anyone every been to "Brothers At Kedco in Farmingdale?"

Speaking as a Brooklyinite:

do yourself a favor and just order from Austin Homebrew Supply or More Beer. I have not found a LHBS that has anywhere near the selection or quality. It takes some extra planning ahead, but it is easy enough to only use online suppliers.

Austins is great! I just would love to have somewhere to go with off flavor issues. Thanks for the advise.

I go to Brooklyn Homebrew. They're great people, always ready to answer questions and pleasant about it. In fact I just got back from there.

Brooklyn Homebrew is great, I've become pretty good friends with them. They actually asked me a question last week! If there is anything I can't get from them, I find it online, but they have a great selection of malts, hops and yeast.

Hey, its a little far, but Arbor Wine in Islip is great. Jim is a great guy and he has a huge stock of hops, WLP Yeast, keg parts, pretty much everything. Tell him Chris sent you in.

I got to Brooklyn Kitchen Labs under the B.Q.E. They have pretty much everything I need and they will order anything you want if they don't have it.

This place is convenient but everything is about 3 times the price you will find it for online. They are really out of wack with their pricing. I live about 10 minutes away and wont go there aside from emergencies at this point. Personally I would prefer to give my money to a local, but their markup is just insane.

Brooklyn Homebrew is a godsend, after years of being reliant solely upon deliveries there's finally a viable local option in NYC. Now that they've got a storefront the selection is improving and I'm loving the fact that it's walkable from my apartment.

When I had a chance I used to stop at Kedco in Farmingdale a few times. They're mostly wine supply, but can often get you by in a pinch.

kedco is actually really good. that's where i got the stuff for my first few batches. the guys are super friendly and have a good amount of knowledge.

brooklyn homebrew people are super nice as well and willing to go the extra mile.

i live four blocks from the brooklyn kitchen and a friend from college owns it so i would recommend that over all else, but that's only because they're close and he's a great guy

I was to Brooklyn Homebrew today for the first time. Was way happy with the selection, pricing and the people in the shop ( very friendly). I'll be a regular customer. For local stuff I've been going to Hydroponics and Homebrew Too in Flushing but as an earlier poster said their prices are way too high.

If you are out east there's a new shop in Calverton called Brew and Beyond.

I have stopped at kedco for grain. I think my one issue was that they only have dry yeast.
