It would be nice to believe that, for the most part, the homebrew crowd is generally an honest bunch of guys that share a common love/hobby.

In any case, I cannot afford to do much outside of a few beer brews here and there when time and money are available.. $17.00 isn't going to hurt me much other than to deny me a batch of beer, or at least the majority of a batch.
I sent paypal as a gift option..More or less as a good gesture. It will be the last time I do this..
This lesson only cost me a measly $17.00...Cheap in the grand scheme of things..
Well played sir...well played. Enjoy my $17.00 AND the vials...
