have to talk to frank..............................
How is ole "Friendly" Frank? He was mellowing when I left Omaha.
On the topic, I generally buy in bulk a few times a year and do the "Walmart" thing making a cart at AHS, NB, & B3.. With gas prices under $2 I'll probably drive up to MDHB for bulk grains and I buy most of my hops in bulk from Freshops.
When it is time to do a big buy, I generally buy from where I can get everything I need in one place. More often than not, AHS has everything I am looking for at the time in stock. (Except that really cool stainless wand with the stone for oxygenating I got at Williams)
