I believe in supporting your LHS but it would have been $ 18 at NB.
LHS doesn't help you pay your bills, don't help them. Seriously, $35 is robbery. If you really feel bad get a sack of 2 row somewhere else and get your specialty grains from them. I'd skip the Chinook FWIW, might scare your friends!
