Default My order from Brewmaster's Warehouse...

Just wanted to let everyone know to beware when buying from Brewmaster's Warehouse. I recently ordered my grain from them for my Shiver-Me-Bitters memorial brew. Upon receiving the grain, I noticed something was different about it and after having brewed the beer, it's all clear to me now. The grain crush was amazing! I planned on 70% efficiency, and ended up with 77%! Ed, what's up with that man? Screwing up my recipes :P

So everyone beware! When ordering from Brewmaster's Warehouse you may get better than expected efficiency!



All kidding aside, I could definitely notice the difference in the crush of the grain over what I get at my LHBS (in that BMW crush is superior). Thanks Ed, that's my first underestimation of efficiency I will definitely be coming back to your webstore.

Agreed. BMW is my go-to.

While I love Ed's crush, what I really love is the heavy duty bags he puts the grain in. It is nice to not have my grain in a bag so thin it gets a tear from simply looking at it.

+1,000,000 I did 2 batches this weekend, one from Ed one from another supplier. I get my order a day faster from Ed, and the crush was AMAZING. I used 5.2 for the first time with this batch and had planned on 5 gallons at 75% eff. I ended up getting 6 gallons at 78% from the same grain bill!! The other batch I used 5.2 again and ended up below 60% on eff. BMS gets all my grain business from here on out (until I can afford my own mill)

Simply said, ED ROCKS!! THANKS BREWMASTERS WAREHOUSE!!!!!

I can't say enough about BMW! I was a loyal customer of another popular HBS (online), and after one too many botched orders *AND* when I switched to AG, I also switched to BMW. Best HBS out there.

I made Lil' Sparky's nut brown ale for the second time yesterday. My gravity readings were much higher (pre-boil, post boil) than the first time, and I had to make an extra hop addition during the boil to keep the IBU's in line with my calculated post boil gravity. I was wondering what was up and reviewed my notes from the previous time I brewed this. Then it struck me - I bought and crushed the grains from one of the LHBS near me for the first brew and bought from BMW for the second. My efficiency the first time was 68%. Yesterday it was 84% ! Holy better crush, Brewman ! Then I looked at my notes from my other AG brews and I was getting around 70%. With the BMW brews I am in the low 80%'s on average. Great job, Ed. I am one happy customer .

+1

Although, funny enough, I tried to stop by when visiting my parents in Atlanta and apparently they aren't even legally allowed to ship in GA.

Just got my next three 5gal batches last week from Brewmaster's...I think I have found my supplier!!!

Entered Yuri's pumpkin ale into the BrewBuilder (but it still comes up as Anonymous spice, herb, veg) added 1 lb of 6-row, then added it to the cart with two Haus Pales and miscellaneous other things. ~$25 cheaper than any other online vendor, ~$100 cheaper than the LHBS (+45min one-way)....and I got it all in four days.

Just pitched into the pumpkin (planning it for T-day not Halloween) day went really smooth but slower than usual....rice hulls saved the day on this one!

Thanks Ed, you made my week!!!!

I just met Ed this weekend and he is truly a stand up guy. By the way Ed, The new cooling setup worked awesome. Wort went from a boil to 58 in 17 minutes!!! Thanks for the pointers.
