yep im realizing this as i go along i had little o rings no big ones my brew store is the brew hut on hamden and chambers i live off of parker and arapahoeOne thing I try to do is keep a stock of "those" items on hand. You know, the simple/tiny things that break, are forgotten... I even have a package of dry yeast in the fridge. I brew with it about every three months and replace so it stays fresh. O-rings of all sizes for kegs and kettle in a ziplock in my brew box.
The more you brew and have those "Oh ****" moments, the more items you find to keep on hand.
BTW What part of Denver and what's your LHBS?
Indeed i will have to hit them up next week it looks like from the website they are a Brew on premise place definitly going to check it outIn case you ever need it (like the one time I forgot my LHBS of choice was closed on Mondays) Do Your Brew is open on Mondays in Westminster. It was a decent store and the owner was very nice to me the one time I made an emergency trip down there on a Monday. They are at 9050 W 88th Ave.
The B-F and I happened to both be off yesterday, unusual for us on a weekday, and decided spur-of-the-moment to throw together another batch of Apfelwein, oh and while we're at it, lets make a summertime wheat beer... awwww crap, it's Monday. Disappointed, I went to the kitchen to start bottling another batch, our Mexican Lager, and was surprised when he came in a few minutes later "hey one of our local HBT'ers just asked why...." I thought it was funny that we were ranting about that, literally just as you posted. We're downtowners who shop at Stomp them Grapes on 15th. Great store. Its small, but they have an awesome staff.so im really in need of ( insert needed piece here) its a monday afternoon but wait there isnt a home brew store open on mondays in the denver metro area. any ideas on why?
