Looking for home brewing supplies & grains? – We’ve got what you need.

Home Brew Supplies &
Specialty Grains

The Homebrew Shop has a wide selection of brewing equipment, cleaning agents, and tap-building supplies. Whether you are interested in brewing with malted and specialty grains or you are interested in trying your hand at a simpler brew process with malted extracts, we have you covered. We also carry a wide selection of hops, with 60 varieties from which to choose for your next brew.

Our featured grain supplier is Riverbend Malt House, and we are the only homebrew shop in Georgia that carries their grains–the same grains used by craft breweries throughout the Southeastern U.S.

Currently stocking from Riverbend Malt House:

  • Southern Select Malted 2-Row Barley (2.5-3.5 SRM)
  • Light Munich Malted 2-Row Barley (8-12 SRM),
  • Chesapeake Pilsner (VA-grown) Malted 2-Row Barley (2 SRM)
  • Base Camp Malted 2-Row Barley (2 SRM)
  • Carolina Rye (Malted Abruzzi 6 SRM)
  • Munich Rye (Malted Abruzzi 10-15 SRM)
  • Appalachian Malted Red Wheat (3 SRM)
  • Pecan Smoked Red Wheat (3 SRM)
  • Bloody Butcher Malted Corn (1.5-2 SRM)

We stock traditional malted and specialty grains for brewing from Rahr, Weyerman, Crisp, and Dingemans. Grains can be purchased by the ounce, pound, or in full 50 and 55lb quantities. Call ahead with your grain bill if you are in a hurry and we can have your order ready for pickup.

We also carry Briess CBW Extracts and Dried Malts (Sparkling Amber, Pilsen Light, Golden Light, Munich, Traditional Dark) and Candi Syrups if brewers are looking for a non-grain brewing alternative.
