I was pokin around on craigslist earlier this week and found a guy selling some homebrew gear for 150$. I asked if he still had it and inquired as to its condition. Turns out that the guy used to own a HBS and didnt want to move gear again. I went to pick it up and this guy had a pile of gear sitting there. I havent completed the inventory yet, but initial looks put me at 4-5 plastic buckets and lids, 2 6gal glass carboys, 4 6gal better bottles, some beer bottles, 60+ wine bottles, wine corker, corks, bottle tree, a 2-3 foot stack of books, and miscellaneous airlocks, stoppers and bags. Most of this gear appears to be brand new and the girl isnt even mad that its a pile in the front room right now! Im planning to brew my first beer with the new stuff tomorrow, really excited to see how the better bottles work out. So ya, this was my bday present to myself and Randy, if you read this forum, you rock man! Thanks!

Sounds like craigslist is awesome! Oh...wait...you guys aren't in Wyoming. Damn. Our craigslist is less useful than a classified listing.

Craigslist is normally junk around here. I mine it for gems every once in a great while.
