I have used Fermenters Supply for beer making supplies over many years. I find that the owner....who is usually in the shop, to be knowledgable and helpful. previous posts may have misunderstood Frank. He is a certified beer and wine judge and organises the State Fair competition each year. He also makes much wine and beer himself. He is very helpful and can be of great assistance to beginners and experts alike.
I have brewed at home for over 30 years (10 gal. full grain batches), so I feel I can speak with some authority in this area.
The shop has a very comprehensive selection of books, equipment and ingredients for both a beginner and an expert.. If it is not in stock Frank can order it!.
You should try this shop again!!
