I would definitely be down for this next time around. I would most likely get 4 or 5 bags.

The Omaha homebrewers will have one in October and post it here. I may do one again shortly thereafter, but 200lbs. should last me a while, I hope.

I would say the 250 pounds I ordered should last me a while. However; the truth is that it will probably cause me to brew like a mad man and I'll have 100 gallons of beer sitting around the house within a couple months. My only limitation will be the number of fermenters I have!

I have 350 lbs. coming from this buy. Should last me at least through Labor Day.

For me, it will be kegs. I have 4 Co2 regulators, too...just only have 3 ball-locks. I gotta stop spending money on this brewery, but I wouldn't turn down some craigslist kegs for $20...I also have a freezer full of hops, so maybe it's time to make a RIS.

FYI, the order is being placed today and we should have grain by end of next week or so!!!

Do you harvest your yeast? I haven't bought chico in 6 months. I'm due though. I think my strain is mildly infected.

I'm hearing rumors we could have this grain by Monday...confirming it's this coming Monday and not the following...

Grain coming THIS Monday!!

Please make tentative arrangements with me to pick up at my place of employment, off 48th and Superior. 8AM, the 12 o'clock hour or 5PM are my best weekday availabilities, but the following Saturday I could be there, too.

Understand that I'd love to just be available any time of any day, but I might piss off my boss if I'm never at my desk, you know, working.

I do harvest yeast but I'm not terribly good at it. I only save one generation because I'm scared that the second or third would be contaminated. I also have a freezer full of hops, in my kegorater!

I'm glad that I'm not the only one teetering on the brink of the allowable home brew "legal yearly limits!"
