welcome back! If you are going to go all grain, maybe start with a pale ale or an IPA. Easy enough and hard to mess up, especially the IPA if you are a hophead.

A stout is in my future. Then an Impy stout...........

Welcome back.

I've been brewing DME for 13 years.

AG doesn't scare me, but I just don't think the return on investment (ROI) is warranted.

I feel I am going to have to order online!
I order my stuff online, too. I highly recommend austinhomebrew.com, morebeer.com and northern brewer. I had great experience with AHB's customer service when I had a (small) problem and I've ordered from them many times.

You can buy an extract kit and it comes with steeping grains and all you need for a batch of beer and they come out really, really good! Shipping at AHB is a flat rate of $5.99 and shipping from morebeer.com is free if you spend $60.

Cool, I have family in Mpls and ordered a catalog from Northern today, I also have pals in Austin that I will see in a few weeks, might have them pick up an order for me. I also found lots of hardware I have broken or lost................time to invest
