Default Ready to brew

I just purchased three 50# bags of DME and 10#'s of hops. I think this will hold me over for a little while.

This does bring up a question though. Where did everybody get their scales from? I was thinking about going to bed bath & beyond just because we have a ton of those 20% off coupons but wasn't sure if they would have what I need.

That's where I got my scale from, the SWMBO purchased it for a diet at one point.

They have digital scales there that weight up to a couple of pounds. They are mostly for preparing food servings so they are smaller than a produce scale. I have one from there that I can weight out 10 oz of grain at a time. But they have other ones that would be able to facilitate larger amounts.

I had free Amazon cards. So I ordered mine off there. $20 for an 11lb scale which goes down to 0.1oz.

I'm going to have a lot of everything in the mix, I really just wanted a greater range to play with. I think this is my list.

Baltic porter
American Barleywine
2 dead guy clone
2 APA's
2 AAA's
Sweet stout
IIPA
Kolsch
Pumpkin
Irish red
Scottish 80
English mild
ESB

I think that's it for now but I have to try to get these done before it's too hot in my house to brew.
