Best Home Brewing Supplies - 2010
Brew Your Own Brew
The Brew Your Own Brew store isn't very big, but somehow it manages to have everything a home brewer needs in stock. It has the equipment (air stills, fruit mashers, fermentation vats), and it has a wide selection of ingredients, from fruit pastes for wines and yeasts for beers to "make-your-own" cheese kits and starter liquids for homemade sodas. BYOB even carries a variety of colored glass bottles, new bottle caps and wine corks, and adhesive labels. There's a selection of books near the register on home-brewing wine and beer and knowledgeable associates on hand to wax enthusiastic about your brewing project and to offer advice. And if there were any doubts that Brew Your Own Brew is serious about the homebrew craft, one step inside the "grain room" will dispel them. Here, you can buy bulk grain for making your booze, including base malts, flaked oats and rice, maize, barley, and even unmalted wheat berries. If you want to home-brew wine or beer but aren't sure exactly what you want to make, a stroll through Brew Your Own Brew will probably give you dozens of ideas.
