Before they started doing their thing the best I could get was $52 at the HBS, $78 for Maris Otter. WF has MO for $56! I don't think the HBS is real crazy about them being here. Especially since they also have what may be the best beer selection I've ever seen, and a tap room that rotates constantly and does casks frequently as well.

I'm sure they pick it up.

Even at 50$ for 55 lbs I can still make beer for 0.38$ a bottle, so I can't complain. 29$ would be pretty sweet though

I wash yeast, or head down to the local brewpub for some free WLP002.
Nice, Wish ours did.

What I saw in the original post was that you didn't preheat your mash ton.
Next time take your sparge water and boil it and add it to your mash cooler in order to preheat the insulation. Then draw it off after a half and hour before you put in your mash water and grains. Then set it aside and let it cool to your desired temp in a pot where you can bring it up to 170 again if needed.
Hope you try the all grain brewing again. Its a great way to spend a day if you have everythign you need and once you get your process down.

I would check the receipt and make sure they didn't fat finger an error when entering the grain bill.

On second thought I could see the pricing. Went into a hbs near a friends and 2-row was 1.89/# and 1# of anything different (crystal 10) was 2.99#. Caps were 6+ for 144.
