Default Whole Foods

Went to WF today to look over their supplies. Before I did any buying, I stopped in the bar and had a glass of North Coast Old Rasputin. Wow, was that yummy. They also got in an hour before I arrived the Stone 11.11.11. I'll reserve that for another day real soon.

Picked up a Brewers Best IPA kit along with an automatic siphon, package of Whirlfloc tabs and a floating brewing thermometer. Not a bad day.. prices were better than I expected

Oh yah.. I finally received one of those chinese digital thermometers with a nice flex probe in the mail today. Less than $2 shipped from China. Heck, I couldn't buy the replacement batteries for that.

We're going to Whole Foods tomorrow... for some veggies!

The veggies at our local supermarket aren't that good so we're making a special trip to WF.

Congrats on the new thermometer.

Got to love the Santa Rosa Whole Foods, Brew tasteing room and brewing supplies. Does that get any better. And it is cheeper that the other LHBS.

That's what surprised me.. I'll still do the LHBS.. but, my first venture into WF was a very pleasant surprise.

Only a week later? Thought it would be longer than that.

I'll report back tomorrow on the Whole Foods experience here in the south-east. Haven't been there for about 6-months.

What exactly is Whole Foods? Never heard of it. A place like that could just be my "ruination".
