Made an amber ale last night and am considering making a blonde ale today if I can get my honey do's done in time.

I was going to brew today if the LHBS's grains were cheaper or comaprable to midwest. They weren't. Midwest was cheaper even with shipping,so it'll be next week before I get my grains for the next pm pale.

Man wish I was having Saturday brew day! Perfect day for it here in WNC (I'm an outdoors brewsman). Wednesday i'll be brewing a Dead Ringer IPA, just hope the weather holds out.

Yeah,gotta wait on Fed-Ex myself,so Monday at the earliest. Can't wait to get this next pm ale going. I've been sitting on a pound of NZ hops I'm dying to experiment with. And that clean,crisp pm goodness should be a perfect way to showcase the NZ hops.

Pssh. Friday Brew Night and Sunday Brewday.

Did a heavy hoppy wheat last night, waiting for the fermentation to start on that, and tomorrow I'm doing a brewer's best cream ale kit.

What kind of grains did you order? I'm checking out Midwest and they seem to be just about the same price as my LHBS (homebrewing.org). I'd love to find cheaper prices for grains, that's the killer right now.

I'll be doing another partial mash pale ale,but my own recipe this time. I ordered;
2lb Rahr 2-row
2lb Marris Otter (crisp)
.5lb crystal 20L
.5lb Carapils (Breisse)
Going to the LHBS for US-05 yeast & a 3lb bag of Munton's plain light DME for that English flavor/color.
The grains cost me $8.42! That's 5lbs total. Shippin Fed-Ex went down to $11.39. The LHBS's grains were $2.02 for some vs 1.39 midwest. .5lb's were 1.89lhbs vs like 79c midwest. LHBS had some odd brands too,& can't buy small amounts of some grains I need if they did have them.
