I stumbled across a HBS online recently that allowed you to "build a recipe" in their software, then would hand pick and mill the grain bill for you (along with the other ingredients) so you could in effect build your own kit.

Now I can't remember what site it was..I tried googling to no avail. Anyone know what I'm talking about, or was it just some sort of hallucination?

thanks stone hands.

I just came back to post that I had found it. I guess my google skillz weren't quite up to snuff yesterday.

Search the forum vendor reviews. They have both good and bad reviews....

He was a member on HBT before he was a vendor. Never had a problem with him myself. Thumbs up from me!

use the brewbuilder applet for every recipe i brew. they can weigh out grains to the ounce and grind them wonderfully. BMW is fantastic.

I like them for the fact that I can build a custom "kit" with the quantities I need. I don't brew that often so I don't buy in bulk, and I don't have a mill (yet), so it works well for me. I use them and would recommend.
