Yeah, we should. Since you're the only person who's shown any interest I think it would just be cheaper/easier to buy a sack from brewmeisters. I don't really want to drive all the way to concord getting 14 mpg to save $15 on grain.

It's too bad there isn't more of a homebrewing community here. I know there are quite a few folks that brew here, but they don't seem to want to hang out with other brewers.

I'm kind of a reclusive homebrewer myself. But that's just because I don't have a lot of free time between work and school. I do however, make a lot of beer.

I also just started selling recipe kits and hops online. You should check it out I have a larger variety of hops than anyone else in this area. Plus since you live in my area I can just drop it rather than pay for shipping.

Check it out: hophero.com

When are you going to do bulk grains?

I'm planning on going out to morebeer in a couple weeks to get some grain. I brew a lot and really need a better selection of bulk products.

If anyone wants something hit me up. I'm planning to go the first week of October.

From my recent Brewmeister receipt
$43.50 for 50 lb sack of Great Western Economy Pale Malt

They also have a store in Folsom. I really like Brewmeister - RV. They are all friendly and prices are fine. I also go to the LHBS on Auburn but I just leave when the old dick is working. Anyone who asks, "What do you want?" in retail and is clearly too busy to devote his attention to the customer is not anyone I choose to deal with. Which sucks because the younger guy there is pretty nice.

If you can't find an excuse to drive to Roseville, you haven't been to Roseville Brewing Company which is about 4 blocks from Brewmeister (and 100 yards from my work )

Like I said, I need a better variety because I brew so often. I go to the brewmiester in roseville all the time and its a cool place when your in a pinch.

That one on Auburn Blvd is my least favorite place to go. They never have a good malt selection all their products are covered in dust and miss-labled. I'm kinda afraid to buy any dme because I'm afraid it going to be old and stale. And the last time I stopped by the old guy wanted to charge me $8 for 2oz of Amarillo which were practically dust in the bag.

I'd way rather build a strong list of items that I need and make the trip to more beer and not have to hit up another store for a few months.

I'm interested in a sack of MO and one of Rahr 2 row. Are you still planning to go?

I'm about 80% done with my rig, and got to thinking about bulk grains - again.
Anything new in the Capitol?
