Welcome. I dig those stubby longneck bottles you used for your pumpkin ale. Are those pretty standard over there?

Welcome to the forum. I know you will get a lot of good information here.

Beer has always been a popular beverage, but do you see an increase in it's popularity there and a greater awareness of the better "craft" brewed beers?  Do you know many other Kazaks that home brew?
Where do you buy most of your supplies? Are you able to get many imported beers from the U.S.? If so, what have been your favorites so far?

Look forward to seeing your posts on the forum and welcome to a really great hobby.
Cheers, (Na zdorovia?)

The last time I talked to John Palmer he said the book was going to be translated to other languages. Glade to see you are a proud owner of the Russian translation. Welcome to the forum.

Beer is not popular in our country. Good beer is expensive, many prefer cheap vodka.  :-\
Thank you Discovery Channel for Brew Masters is a television series.
Thank you that there is an internet and forums where people with similar interests communicate. This is the main source of knowledge

Do you know many other Kazaks that home brew?
2-3 people who brew beer from kits coopers, 1-2 times a year
1 person that brews one once a month all grain
It is very small

Where do you buy most of your supplies?
We have no specialty stores for home brewers, where you can buy an ounce of hops or a few pounds of malt. This is probably the main reason for low popularity of home brewing.
I know two of the company where you can buy for cash bag malt (50 kilograms / 110 lbs), the packet hops (5 kilograms / 11 lbs) or a pack of dry yeast (500 grams / 1.1 lbs).
I know what to do with 50 kilograms Pils or wheat malt, but why me 50 kilograms to Munich malt or why I 5 kilograms Saaz hops?  :'(
Base malts bought these firms, hops and yeast EBay

Are you able to get many imported beers from the U.S.? If so, what have been your favorites so far?
American beer? Budweiser in many stores, it's probably not the best.
Had a chance to try the IPA Sierra Nevada, Samuel Adams Boston Lager, American Dark Lager Coors Brewing. IPA probably best that tried.
My dream is to try 120 Minute IPA and Punkin Ale from Dogfish Head
The motto of Dogfish Head "off-centered stuff for off-centered people" this is the essence of home (craft) brewing.

I always find the brewing experiences of those in other parts of the world very interesting.  I'm not sure I would have taken up the hobby if the ingredients were hard to get and/or possibly sub par.  I commend your fortitude.  Welcome to the forums.

We moved to rural Oregon from Mpls. I felt like I was challenged here getting brew supplies initially, but at least the stuff was available easily by mail. I too commend you for overcoming that obstacle and pursuing home brewing. I hope you continue to find the hobby rewarding and enjoyable. Perhaps you can discuss brewing with specialty grains with the other people that you know that brew. Then you may be able to take advantage of the increased number of users to split some supply purchases. Also, if you have any small brewers or brew pubs locally, they may be willing to sell you small amounts of ingredients. Here in the U.S., small professional brewers are some of the biggest supporters of the home brewers and are almost always ready to help with supplies or advice.

With a person who brews beer we share purchase. There are two people who brew moonshine, they share with us the purchase of malt.
I think that people who brew moonshine join brewing.
There is a small pub where beer is brewed, the head brewer is good, it helps in the purchase of malt and hops.
We cooked together beer in this brewery, it was fine. Bad that before him 300 miles and we can not meet often.
