Not today but yesterday. Got a big order from RiteBrew. Dry yeast (8 packs), liquid yeast (just 2), 40# Maris Otter, some rye malt, and a couple of other items.

Also not today but yesterday, restocked the yeast supply with 3 packs of S23 and 5 packs of Nottingham from Amazon. Their prices just cannot be beat; less than $40 for 8 packets of yeast? With really good (as in late 2023 for both) dating? I do like to support my LHBS's, but both are +45 minutes away, and what with 11+ hour workdays including Saturdays, I just can't get there as often as I'd like.

Order from Yakima came today - 1 lb of Cascade and 10 mL hop shot. But…they sent 150 g of hop extract. I opened package and there was a can and I thought the syringe was in the can but, nope, pure hop extract. Now the can is open can’t close it, so transferred to a container and store in the freezer. Figure I can get a syringe from work and use 10 mL aliquots. Anyone use or have this much hop extract before?

is that a BIAB thing, or a hop thing? ;)

edit: or maybe steeping grains? mini mash? i gotta know!

edit 2: i have no idea where that other quote came from?
It’s for hops in the kettle either during the boil or flame out. But I could add it to my kettle while I’m mashing in with the BIAB and put my sous vide in it and not worry about the grains clogging it.
So it would have multiple uses.
My intention is to get away from using hop bags during the boil & FO because I hate emptying and cleaning them afterwards.
Yeah where did that other quote come from? Haha

Shiny new 7.5 gal brew kettle from Homebrew supply.com. Caught it on sale for $24.95. Basic, only comes with a weldless bulkhead but I'll drill for a thermometer. Also no gallon markings , I may etch or not depends. I wanted it more as a HLT than a brew pot but why not ? Off topic, also got my 2nd ZWO ASI120MM planetary cam. TOYS !!!

Ha. I keep a running list of potential beer names, and Upper Crust Brew just got added to the list. =c).
A keptinis surely?

Upper Crust is a sandwich chain here, I guess it's a British sort-of-equivalent to Subway found mostly at railway stations and the like.
