Best places for ingredients

Postby dougharold on Mon Jan 27, 2014 9:38 pm

I have been on a homebrew hiatus for a number of years and want to get back in the rhythm again. In order to eliminate the learning curve, I am asking the members where the best places are to buy bulk ingredients? I am looking to do all grain recipes and am on a budget.

My next post will more than likely be about upgrading equipment and the best places for that as I have primarily been a bucket brewer but am looking to upgrade to become more efficient and have a better product.

Thanks for the assistance.

The primary options around OC are:

Addison Homebrew Provisions
http://www.addisonhomebrew.com/

More Beer
http://morebeer.com/about/retail (look for Riverside)

O'Shea Brewing
http://www.osheabrewing.com/

Steinfillers
http://www.steinfillers.com/

O'Shea is the most expensive and limited selections of grains (all pre-milled), hops and yeast. They're good in a pinch if you're in south county. I think the others are pretty comparable. Steinfillers donated some prizes for our holiday party last year, so that's a nice plus in their favor.

Edit: If you're looking for bulk hops, Hops Direct (http://www.hopsdirect.com) and Yakima Valley Hops (http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com) have been good to me.
