Check the classifieds, a member here is selling 2007 Challenger pellets by the lb. Just got mine in yesterday and they look superb.

I'm surprised Laughing_Gnome hasn't posted to this thread yet given the title. Perhaps he's just hungover.



Looks good to me. I would stuff my pillow with MO. It's a great malt.

Me too. I thought the OP wanted to beat Orfy and Gnome silly.
Finding out it was just about beer was disappointing.

I coulda made a post earlier, but I am making a concerted effort to stay on topic in beer forums.

I woulda gone with Fuggles myself, but man, I am so biased towards Fuggles.

Please don't. It's too out of character.
Where is Gnome and what have you done with him?
