I live in Phoenix and was thinking about just driving down and hand delivering mine. Called just to make sure and the gentleman on the phone said YES I could bring it and that would work, Buuuuuuuut, the LBC is shipped from their warehouse in Washington, I think.

Dangit! Would have been cool to just drop off the LBK shard and pay the handling and get it then. Oh, well. In the mail it goes tomorrow!

GREAT PROMOTIONAL DEAL!

Thanks Demon Brew!

I did. Sent them a message with some follow up questions and havent heard back. I will say that Mr Beer has excellent customer service. So far, these guys have not impressed. We'll see how this goes.

I think this is blasphemous. And in poor taste, especially considering how many people who had never even considered brewing until they got a Mr Beer as a gift. This company, and probably most homebrew related companies in the US anyway, likely owe a good chunk of their bottom line to Mr Beer in one way or another. Also, how about passing it down for someone else to try?

That's all mr beer will ever be. A starting point. Because as soon as people find out you can brew 5 gallons for the price of or lower than 2 gallons of mr beer they are gone. I started with mr beer. Joined the forums over there. Grew tired o the same old blah blah blah nothingness. Every post was the same. As soon as I saw the price for all grain I was gone. Haven't looked back since

I completely agree with your statement, and still stand behind mine.

Yes and no for me. I brewed with it 3 times, then went to extract kits, then partial grain, and now do all grain, so figured I would never use it again. But then came Hard Cider, all my fermenters were taken up, so I made a 2 1/2 gallon batch of cider and put it in my Mr Beer. Then i realized last week I still have 5 lbs of 2-row sitting around, so I decided to do a experimental batch with that and spices, and did a BIAB that was about 2 3/4 gallons, and i put that in my Mr Beer 4 days ago.

So while I don't hardly use it, it has come useful for me a few times still

I just received the PayPal invoice today and I mailed them last Tuesday. So I assume it will be another week+ for me.
