Two weeks ago I finally tried out home brewing and I'm hooked! Are there any other home brewers on this board? I'm curious where you go for supplies. I have ordered most of my stuff from Northern Brewer. I picked up a couple of things from Friar Tucks too. This weekend I pimped my garage and built a brewing table. So far I brewed a Bavarian Hefeweizen and last night did a Raspberry Wheat.

That's a nice table and set up! I've been homebrewing for a few years, but I'm still an amateur. I just do a few batches a year, and I still do extract, not all-grain. Right now I've got a batch of mead fermenting, but it stalled out so I picked up some more yeast at lunch to try to get it moving again.

I don't know about the LHBS in St. Louis (I'm in Denver), but you should check out garagebrewers.com for sure. Great message board and club.

Yes I do!

I'm on the east side so if I need some last minute ingredients I usually hit Dave's Homebrew in Belleville.

Otherwise I buy just about all of my stuff through Missouri Malt Supply. Bulk discounts, and the other stuff's a lot cheaper.

I got hooked bad too and went all-grain after 2 extract batches. I do 10g batches unless I'm making a crazy heavy beer. (I learned the hard way that my mash tun cannot hold enough water and ~50 pounds of grain for big beers.)

Depending on your location, there's 3 area homebrew clubs that are active.

http://www.garagebrewers.com runs out of O'Fallon, MO
http://www.stlbrews.org runs out of St. Louis city
http://www.eastsidebrewers.org runs out of Alton/Edwardsville area.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
