This is the third of four recent orders that Amazon has f**ked up. All three items were listed as fulfilled by Amazon. I've learned the hard way to avoid ANY other sources when shopping w/ Amazon. Now they're claiming it was a secondary source.
I guess the best resolution is to avoid Amazon at all costs.
Besides, they now charge sales tax (price increase) & they've jacked the minimum order for free shipping by almost 50%! Last, they don't back up the buyer by providing what was ordered when they F**k up! A refund does me no good when I need the item I ordered when it's promised.
I would have gone elsewhere in the first place & saved the time , money, & aggravation!

The tax part does suck. I have Prime, so I get free 2 day shipping, and I don't have to worry about the minimum order.

2X on having Prime...for the extra it cost a year its well worth it.
I also only order from amazon warehouses. The third party vendor thing is nothing but a hassle.

Last week I got my first shipment from Farmhouse Brewing Supply. I was really happy with the speed and service.

Got 1lb each of Chinook and Mosaic (used in my house IPA) plus 2x4oz packages of Citra pellets (thought I'd throw some of that into next batch of house ipa as well). Also picked up 1lb of Fawcett 45L crystal malt : Curious I don't see that listed in BeerSmith, wonder if I can customize a malt?

Also got a foodsaver vacuum sealer in order to repackage my bulk hops. Man do I look forward to brew day on March 1st! Sure hope its over 40°F outside!!

Cheers!

noble trapist ale kit from midwest for a buddy. i love brewing and want to brew more but don't want to be a full blown alcoholic or give tons of it away so i now have my friends ordering kits and shipping them to my house. i brew it, make them help bottle (over beers of course), keep a sixer and give them the rest.

Don't worry. Once you get your CO2 tank, it won't be flat anymore.

:D

Upgrading from 2 keg system to 3 had to decide on a 3rd faucet/shank and new drip tray or a chugger pump and since i'm really tired of dealing with 10 gallon batches via gravity I opted for the pump.

Couldn't find used ball lock kegs anywhere locally or online at a reasonable price so bit the bullet and got 3 new ones to fill keezer up. Also 2 more pounds of hops which takes me to 17 pounds I think and a mash paddle. (Dog didn't come in mail today).

Two 1 gallon kits from Northern Brewer: Saison du Miel and Sierra Madre. I haven't really had much for Saisons, so wanted to give it a try in a small batch. I'm looking for a good, light summer brew. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is awesome, one of my favorites, but, again, wanted to give the clone a test run before committing to 5 gallons.

Nothing super special, had to buy a 12V AC/DC power adapter with a molex end on it...i realized i could have just made my own but this is going to be powering fans for my keezer I felt a bit more secure knowing its a fully molded cable and not one of my haphazard DIY electronics :)

I just got my new pH meter! Hanna Instrements 98127. Not a cheap one, but, hopefully, a quality one! I'm excited, now i'm gonna go do all sorts of pH experiments!

Pictures?

Sent from my SPH-L720 using Home Brew mobile app
As requested..... I thought all my stuff would be here (I got an email while at work that my package arrived) only to find out some of the stuff was back ordered. No worries - just a minor delay. Here's pics of what has arrived:

Gear on Shelf.jpg

Kettle on Stove.jpg

Mini BIAB.jpg

Swamp Cooler.jpg

I am planning to do 1.5 gallon stove-top BIAB...my first brew is to be an ESB. I have some Meris Otter, some Crystal Malt 20L, some Victory Malt, Fuggles and East Kent Goldings, and some SafAle #S-04. I'll keep it cool in the swamp cooler.

I think just by the age of the stove in the picture, that automatically qualifies me for the ghetto brew/ugly junk thread....lol.
