Check out the Beer Nut on 1200 S State. They'll fill you in on all the rules.
Since you are in Logan check out a little shop in Richmond on main street. Very random for a brew store in a tiny town in the heart of mormon country but he has very reasonable prices. Less overhead that the SLC stores so he passes on the savings big time. 25-50% less than the Beer Nut.
i passed that last year.
shhhhh

dont tell the fuzz.

Jamie at the beer nut jokes i brew more than her.

Haha, yeah he is pretty funny like that. But they do have some better deals than the beernut and if you are looking to get into kegging that is the place to go

The Beer Nut is awesome.

Used to buy from Arts way back in the day. He was a bit cantankerous for my tastes.

Another good way to get starter's equipment is ebay. Just research what you need first so you know what you're buying, but I got a setup worth about 300 for around 60 since the guy was desperate to get out from under it. Cheers

The Beer Nut, The Beer Nut, Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies

It looks like you will have to go to Richmond or Ogden to get supplies.

Go ahead and brew, just don't tell your Stake President.

Or anyone for that matter, friends come out of the woodwork

Art knows his business... or at least he did. When I first talked to him about 3 years ago he was trying to set me up with 3 foot lines. I didn't really have the time or money to talk to him that day. But this last season I called him again just for a used keg (the same ones he has pictured in a gigantic stack on KSL classifieds) He ended up talking me into a tower and some 5 foot lines as well as an extra grain bill (which I'd already ordered from beer nut, but it never hurts to have more) He'll talk a mess on beer nut, or probably any of his competitors. The biggest problem I run into with art is he never wants to take my card, and then have my parents pick it up when they're in the city. The second biggest problem, He'll run my phone battery dead if I call there. I suppose maybe the third is just that his website needs some work. I've considered getting a site ready and then trying to bargain with him for a few lbs of free grain before.

The wine and beer that you can make is much better than what you get in the store and cheaper too. IMO

there are home brew shops all over the place and online as well.

I was referred to this site from a home brew forum as a matter of fact.
There really aren't that many in Utah. I was also referred to here from HomeBrewTalk.com - Beer, Wine, Mead, & Cider Brewing Discussion Community. It's an amazing resource for people just getting into the hobby and even (maybe even more so) advanced brewers

I love Jamie She knows me as Dallas from Richfield I think. lol. I'm pretty sure I trash the 200 gallon mark by the end of a year. Well, maybe not the first year. Still, it's less than a batch a week, and I consumed all the proof. lol

(a batch a week I meant, I drink far more than a gallon a week)

A new brew store opened up on 25th st. Union Station Fermentation.

We are interested in home brewing beer and wine. We will try Brew Nuts and see what they have to offer. Also we are interested in meeting other drinkers in Utah county. Just for the social aspect of it. We just moved from Denver to Pleasant Grove UT, to be with my husbands' family. Any ideas for somewhere to hang out and meet other non-LDS types? We have only found one "sports bar" (Iggys in Orem), if you can really call it that. Seems like Sky box in south Jordan is out of business. I'm struggling for where to find friends that will be OK with me drinking wine. HELP!! Thanks
