OK, Donít get discouraged by the name. This place has everything you need to begin homebrewing, along with any semi-automatic gun you might need. I was in there very briefly right as they were closing, in fact I thought we were going to kicked out but we asked for five minutes of their time and they graciously let me buy a kit. I did not get to look around for very long at all, but i did not see tubs full of whole grains like you see at a lot of home brew shops. Regardless, they have lots of equipment, basic extracts and hop pellets, I called to ask if they had whole grains and they said they did so I must not have seen them. Prices seemed very fair for what I did get to look at. Very helpful staff and overall they seemed glad that I was so excited to but a kit. It was 70 bucks for a 5 gal. glass carboy, a chech pils LME kit, 1 lb pale DME, 1lb corn sugar, airlock, sanitizer, hose and racking cane, 2 packs dry yeast. Seemed good to me but then again it is my first time to home brew. Only beef was that it didnít come with a hydrometer but ebay took care of that easily. Bottling bucket, capper, caps and bottles were additional 30 bucks.
