I'd never been to a retail outlet for home brewing supplies until I visited American Homesteader. I was extremely pleased with the selection of goods and products, and the clerk working was very helpful with explaining the pros and cons of the beer making kits I was interested in buying. I entered with the intention of buying a few supplies to suppliment a Mr. Beer recipe I was making, and left with another beer making kit much more sofisticated than the Mr. Beer kit I had. I also bought enough ingredients to make two batches of beer, instead of the one I intended to make. I plan to return here often. Visit this store first, if you need anything for self sufficient survival.
Wow, what a neat store! So many different interest. My fiancee spent most of her time roaming through the Amish built furniture, beautiful stuff. I enjoyed the surprisingly large beer and wine making area. I have never seen a brew shop with this much stuff. The sales people are very friendly and not at all pushy.
