Default Bought my first big sack today!

I'm so excited. Here's a picture of my 55lb sack. Of 2 row. So pumped!! 38.95 seems like a fair price.

Nice sack! Wait that didn't sound right.

I have sack envy I guess.

I just did my second AG and will be moving to bulk grains soon after I invest in a crusher. That price doesn't sound bad to me. You should be able to get about 5-6 brew out of that right?

{blush} it's always nice to get complements on my sack.

5 brews is about right. I'm stoked to be at like .80/lb rather than 1.50!

Now I just have to keep my sack clean, cool, and dry. And keep the bugs out of my sack. Does the cockroach have a cousin sackroach?

Awesome!!!

I'm going with bulk grain with my next brew. If you room for storage, then cost wise it's the best thing to do...

The faster you brew the less storage needed!!

Yes, great price on that, I think the place I get mine from is about $1 a pound.

Remember, take good care of your sack and your sack will take care of you!

Do this and it should keep the bugs away! Also make sure you watch where you are sticking it!

By the way where did you score that killer deal?
