Default All Grain from Amazon.com... seems really nice... oddly CHEAP

I dont know about this but i am thinking of ordering... Amazon.com has an entire section completely devoted to home brewing... Things like 10 pound bags of grain for less then 20$, a variety pack of 6-8oz bags of 6 types of premium orgainc hops, Hops seeds, Hydroponic hops setups... Over 50 extract brew kits in well known names such as muttons, great american, Coleridge, etc... I am impressed... I will give the link and have you guys look around and give advice if this looks to good to be true... some products i found perticluarly interesting... are below as well as the direct link

Amazon.com: home brewing: Grocery

And i heres the ones i liked the look of...

Coleridge Russian Imperial Stout, 12-Pound Boxes: Amazon.com: Grocery

Coleridge Brewing Honey, Raspberry, Raw, Unpasturized, 3-Pound Tub: Amazon.com: Grocery

as well as sevral more, an asutralian red ale kit, And so much more which i like the look of so much that i am considering blowing an offal lot of money... let me know what you guys think

Cheers

Edit: most is elegiable for free fast shipping

I think you get an official "good eye!" for spotting this one.

I don't know "Coleridge" by name, but the suppliers are all mentioned (Breiss, Gambrinus, etc.). And those prices are good, especially if you get the free shipping. A standard 10-pound bag can be a bit much for some specialty grains, too. I'll try to keep supporting my LHBS, but since my wife is an Amazon nut, this might be worth looking into!

Doesn't look too bad, but I am fairly underwhelmed by it. Most of the grain I looked at is more expensive than AHS and who knows how it is being stored in Amazon's warehouse. Overall, I think your better off if you stick with the top homebrew mail order places if you want to order over the web. The prices will be as good or better and you can be sure the ingredients are fresh...plus, if you don't have a mill you can have them mill your grain for you.

I'll report back once it arrives.

I thought it looked good at first but then I realized that when I took an ingredient by ingredient look I still do much better with Morebeer. You really can't beat Morebeer's prices though. ( But you REALLY can beat their availability.)

You inspired me to search for beer stuff Jack. I was as surprised as you that Amazon had all that stuff. Only one hit for a base malt. $7.95! / 10 lb bag!!! $11.99 for shipping!?! WTFFFFF!!! And I am an Amazon Prime member .
