« on: June 11, 2020, 09:03:25 AM »
after almost a decade long gap in my brewing I am in the early stages of collecting some brew gear almost ready to do my first brew introducing 2 new guys to home brewing also I have a few questions as I have been away from brewing for so long ....

1. Where is the best place to source hops these days
2. Also looking for a jug of Starsan 
3. Looking for some US-05
4. Are there any good sources for ball lock kegs Id like to locate 6-8

Hey Dave,
Glad to see your getting back into the brewing. I'd say you can source most of the things you're looking for at Noble Grape and there's online options like Onario Beer Kegs, Everwood brew shop and eastcoasthoppers.ca.
We also do club buys for hops once on a while and as far as  yeast goes we usually have a supply for club members and it can be bulk ordered with our grain. You might want to ask Brew what we have in the inventory right now.
Good luck!
 :cheers:

Thanks for the reply seems pretty quiet here these days was a very prolific forum before I stopped brewing

Im hoping to meet up with Brew this weekend to pay membership/buy some grains so if he has yeast too bonus !!!

the eastcoast hoppers seem to have decent prices also and I am surprised they even have my fav hop in stock love love love galaxy

Hey Dave! Starsan is harder for us to get so one of the places Roger mentioned is best for that... (hazmat costs for shipping make it too expensive for us to source)

We have lots of 05 and 04 so you can get some if you stop by - also have club whirlfloc and we still have some fermcap - if you want some bring a little bottle with you...

Ball lock kegs are harder to come by now - I'm not sure if anyone might have any for sale?

Hey Dave!
Glad you are brewing again soon
I, too took a long hiatus, but have recently returned to the hobby.
