My brother is currently living in Taiwan and is wondering about supplies for making some beer (or other stuff). Any of our international friends have links, anecdotes, or advice?

It's hard to find supplies in Taiwan. There is not a large interest in home brewing in Taiwan amongst the local population. Most of the people that I have met that are interested in home brewing are foreigners. I tried to drum up interest with www.TaipeiHomebrew.com (http://www.TaipeiHomebrew.com) but I wasn't having much luck.

Since Taiwan is an isolated island with trade issues, it is costly to get supplies sent here. The goal behind the site I started wasn't really to make a lot of money but to make it affordable by doing bulk orders.

Send your brother the link to the site and get him to join the Facebook group. There are a few people on there. It would be great to build more of a community of home brewers here in Taiwan.
