So.... Is it a bad thing that I've been to one of my lhbs's three times this week? Lol. I go in for yeast and come out with a carboy, bucket , thermometer, and more!

Maybe you could pick up some extra hours there! I love mine too. One of them is in a brewery/restaurant and they're open until 11pm. Same hours as the restaurant. Love it!

Just remember, you don't spend money on equipment, you invest in it!

I just go to mine to hang out. Sit at the tasting room and chat with the owners. They are great people and we have great conversations.

yeah, i should just walk in and put 40 dollars on the counter each time. There is always something to buy because i am new to it. I would always joke around at a fly shop i use to frequent and everytime just walk in and put 20 bucks on the register

Now I need a large pot for stovetop pasteurizing. Walmart has some tamale pots that are cheap. Bought a meat thermometer yesterday at my lhbs.

This is what I use for pasteurization:

And yeah, I've been to the LHBS for one thing, and left with a lot more as well. On a first name basis with the people that run it now.
