Hi from Prince William
« on: March 12, 2015, 09:23:24 PM »
Hello All

I'm a new member from Prince William, my name is Joe. I met some of you at the meeting a few weeks ago a Peter's house.   Hopefully, I can make it to a few more meetings.

I've made lots of Wine and even some Mead, but now I am focusing my efforts on brewing. I love it!

Right now I am thinking about brewing up some IPA's, so I was thinking about buying a few pounds of hops....maybe some citra, or amarillo and chinook. I realize that these hops can be hard to come buy, any suggestions where to look to get a good deal?

Hi Joe, welcome to the club!

Everwood Avenue Brewshop has everything you need, and is great to deal with:
https://www.everwoodavebrewshop.com/category/hops-lb/

I usually look at Everwood first, then Ontario Beer Kegs. Then Noble Grape.

Welcome, look forward to meeting you. @Two Wheeler listed the best place to get hops, if you have a PO box in the US it would be worth it to order from Yakima.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I checked out Everwood, I think I will get my hops from them. Seems like pretty good prices.

Something else that came to mind. I don't have a chiller right now and I have been making do as it has been so cold. Before I go and buy some copper tubing, does anybody have an immersion chiller they would like to sell?

No Chiller, but if you buy copper, talk to @Fhilo . He steals copper out of buildings and sells it really cheap.



In reality he works at a plumbing supply company. Still sells it cheap :)
