I could assume your a home brewer since your on this forum. There's a Gum Ball recipe floating around this site, so you can brew your own and save a ton of cash. I brewed it twice ( 2x10 gallon batches) and people seems to like it a lot. I live a couple of miles from the brewery and prefer to brew my own. I can drink two and then I need to change up to a different beer. Castermmt

$14?=Rape?! F No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get out the pepperspray! I went to a nearest college town in Il, which is the only place I can get any Floydes. Well during the off season(summer) there were 0- 6 packs to be found anywhere(yeah I tried 4-5 places) not to mention the !$=Rape! tollways near Chicago. I mananged a few aged bombers but It was like a Floydes ghost town. I thought maybe there was a recall or something. Miss that beer though,its a good one. I have doubts it can be brewed the same but I cant say ive ever tried though.

Is it? 3F is a good 60 miles from the Chicago western burbs x $4/gallon x 25 mpg = $20 round trip + tolls = ~$25

vs.

$14/sixer - $10/sixer = $4 difference
or
$14x4 = $56/case - $35/case = $21 difference

So, if you buy a case and a sixer, it IS worth the drive, if you don't include your time and car depreciation. But if you go on the tour and/or enjoy breweries, sounds worth it to me. Cool.

I just bought a 12.68 ounce bottle of Russian River Consecration for 12.95 plus tax at the store if that makes you feel better.

I made the GBH clone a few months back and had a bottle from 3F to compare it to. Spot on recipe and a fraction of the cost.

The fact remains that 3 Floyd's is a small brewery and they intend to stay that way, demand is far greater than supply and in fact even in Chicago area it moves off the shelf as fast as it goes on the shelf. They even have a limit to what you can but at the brewery.

There is talk about them opening in Chicago but no confirmation on what type of expansion it will create. As with anything else, if demand outpaces supply price goes up. If I can find it I'll occasionally pony up for some but not often.

These days in our area it's hard to find many great beers for less than $10 even as our taxes are ridiculous!

I would say this recipe is dead nuts on... I compared mine to a bottle of GBH that I had and I highly doubt anyone could tell the difference. My best brew to date.

Here is the recipe that I used:

All Grain Recipe - Gumball Head Wheat ::: 1.052/1.012 (6 Gal)
Grain Bill (70% Efficiency assumed)
6 lbs. - Wheat Malt
5 lbs. - 2-Row Pale Malt
1 lb. - Caravienne Malt

Hop Schedule (27 IBU)
1/4 oz. - Amarillo - First Wort Hop
1/4 oz. - Amarillo - 60 min.
1/2 oz. - Amarillo - 15 min.
1.25 oz. - Amarillo - 5 min.
1 oz. - Amarillo - 1 min.
1.5 oz. - Amarillo - Dry Hop

Yeast
Wyeast 1056 - American Ale - 1800 ml starter

Mash/Sparge/Boil
Mash at 153° for 60 min.
Sparge as usual
Cool and ferment at 68° to 70°

Notes
Wait til fermentation is finished and then add dry-hop additions for 7 days.
Rack and bottle or keg as normal.
