Greetings all!

I'm going to hit you with the most common (probably) question asked
by those of us homebrew fanatics who reside in the middle of nowhere:

Who is (are) a good mail-order supplier???

It's hard to expand your brewing experience if all you have to work
with is grocery store variety hopped malt extract :-) (and only one brand
at that!). Addresses, catalog/price list availability, general experiences
in dealing with these folks, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

On another note, what are some good sources for lab cultures (yeast)?
esp. if different from above.

Also, how does one get a subscription to "Zymurgy" magazine? Like I
said, I'm living in a relative vacuum as far as sources/obscure information
goes. So, any & all info would be greatly appreciated!

Now, from the commonplace to the more interesting. I want to construct
a counterflow wort chiller, but the issue of cleaning/subsequent sterility
does bother me. What are *your* experiences with this device. It appears
that the counterflow device is a good bit more efficient than an imersion
type cooler, and infinately better than plunking your fermenter down into a
bathtub full of cold water. Comments?

Well, enough for the group to ponder over for now. Thanks again in
advance for any & all help!
