Hey Everyone, I live near Montclair, I'd be interested if someone were going to start a homebrew / tasting club. I know Corrodos is less than ideal but they are the only game in town that I know of. I've had good luck ordering from Northern Brewer with their flat rate shipping. Any of you try to grow hops? I made my first harvest this year, I was really happy with how they turned out.

A good friend of mine should be pulling his first full mature harvest in the spring/summer.

I'm always up for a meet and drink. JamesM you are not far from me at all. I'm in desperate need of some fresh unbiased opinions. All others are welcome.

I live pretty close by (and work in East Hanover). Not sure if I could juggle it with family responsibilities, but always interested in meeting and learning from other homebrewers.

I have pretty much gone the whole Internet route for supplies. Usually order from MOREBEER.COM, where I combine orders with a fellow homebrewer for free shipping, but sometimes if I need a few things (e.g. yeast) in a hurry I will go to The BRUHAUS ebay store

They are in NY State, so shipping is quick.

Use to buy a lot from Jay's Brewing in Virginia, also for the quick shipping, but since the store changed hands, prices and shipping have gone up somewhat. Still a nice place to deal with.

For DME, DMEMART has good prices and free shipping.

A winemaking place opened up in Whippany, Vintner's Circle which has some supplies useful to all brewers, vintners and mazers.

For bulk hops, Hops Direct is a good source

Thanks for the suggestions Recluse.

I have ordered several times from Midwest and have been pleased with the quality. I just wish there was something super local so I could more easily brew with less date planning.

Girlfriend on Sunday - "So and so called and wants me to come see the baby. What will you do today?"
Me - "Oh well in that case I'll go pick up the stuff for that killer tripel I thought up last month"

Hey all. I'm in Cedar Grove, just over the hill from Montclair. I've been brewing since Feb. Done extract, PM and just did my first All-grain a couple of weeks ago. I'm always looking for people to geek-out with about beer and brewing.

South jersey brewer

Hey guys-
I've been brewing for a while down here in Medford Lakes (South Jersey). I gradually worked up to all grain, and now have a pretty good set up. I've been brewing with a friend lately, and while its great to split the costs of brewing, I hate parting with half my beer!!

Looks like you will have to start brewing twice as often.
