Thank you everyone for your help. When I first started brewing a spent a ton of money shipping

Ok, so buying special honey and brown sugar from a brew supply online for a high price is not
worth it when I can buy them from a grocery store.

Homebrew Heaven sells "brewer's" brown sugar and "brewer's" honey. I needed both for a
