So just scored a bunch of stuff from my LHBS that just closed down, I worked there for two years and it was sad to see it go. But on the brighter side of things I was able to pick up a bunch of stuff really cheap.

Cost $75

And a fairly new barley crusher with 15lb hopper on a box stand I built for $100

Really disappointing to see my awesome shop go but now I have too much stuff to know what to do with, at least my boss was cool enough to let the employees grab stuff at great prices because of how much we loved working there.

Just thought I would share of my version of hitting the lottery

Nice, sad but nice. Glad you were taken care of. Now what to brew? Looks like just about anything you have the yeast for.

Yeah kinda bittersweet, right? I have no idea really were to start, fall and winter are on the way I have some oatmeal laying around so maybe a stout or rye ipa, or now might be a good time to do some SMASH style beers, any suggestions would be awesome

Well that 150L could go well in an American stout and some hops from down under could too.

A NZ IPA would be great. My Maori IPA came out really good. And I agree on a stout...even a porter for fall & winter. ESB's & brown ales as well would be within reach with all that great stuff you got there.

Epic haul, my man! You've got some awesome equipment and ingredients to make phenomenal brews. Kinda jealous actually... I never seem to find deals like this.

Still haven't brewed an esb so that's on the list, I am gunna go ahead with an oatmeal stout and let it age out till the fall, just moved into a new place, need to get my kegerator back up and running and I'll be in business

I'll probably brew this again

I've got an ESB that I've been drinking on for a few weeks now, among others, like a saison, irish red & a pm dampfbier. Got a watermelon hefeweizen in one fermenter yesterday afternoon. Debating on what to fill the second primary with? You'll like a well-balanced ESB though. They can be strangely addictive?...
