I think the attention to detail that your notes show will be very helpful on your journey in our hobby. Well done. Find the next kit (something you like) and have it ready to go when you are ready to brew again

When I hear of homebrew shop sales declining, I'm immediately reminded how many shops should probably be in a different business.
Or at least some employees should be in another business
edited because sometimes I am technologically challenged

Hey, depending on the size of the shop that can sometimes happen.  My buddy owns a small local shop that he always has well stocked, but on the unlucky day you may be looking for something that someone just came in before you and cleaned them out of.  Sorry.
I can understand that, but when I ask for Weyermann Pilsner, telling me you're out is fine, but don't start to weigh out Swaen Pilsner or suggest Maris Otter or Briess 2 row. I can see those if I ask for 10# of base malt, but not when I ask for Weyermann Pilsner. I think that part was more shocking to me than the outage, as I know they are small and way out on the outskirts of town and could understand being out of things on occasionally

At least she didn't offer carapils as a substitute.
Well there is that

So I walk into an LHBS today looking for 5-10  pounds of continental Pilsner Malt, saw they mainly carried Weyermann, so I asked for that. The employee reached into a bag of Swaen Pilsner(?) and tells me she only has about 1# left. "Let me go get another bag of Pilsner" and disappears for a minute, and then comes back saying she is out of Pilsner, but does have Marris Otter and Briess 2Row. I almost never shop at this shop, as it is the farthest from my home, but I was out that way today for work so I gave them a shot. They also operate with a brewer's license and are out of Pilsner malt. I think I remember why I rarely shop there

It's a smaller bayou classic. Their fish fryer,  ame with a shallow pot that I won't be able to use. I am assuming the stand will be as rickety as my original bayou classic but should not cause any problems with smaller batches. I pocked it up at home depot just before spring as a closeout special for $25. Couldn't pass it up. Haven't used it yet, again, fingers crossed

Have the day to myself on Sunday and am planning on 2 3.5g batches. Following Ken's "original" recipe and a revised one for his North German Pilsner. I now have a second burner, and plan on trying to run both batches at roughly the same time. Fingers crossed

That is awesome, wish I never had to sell mine. Can't imagine I'm going back that route at this point in life. But the buy once thought pattern was exactly what I had in mind when I bought those components

HDMI? Remotes? My HiFi is a little old school, not vacuum tube old school, but I bought it in '74&75 when I got out of college. Paid a lot for it, and still have it. Mac MR-78, C-28, Mac 2100 amp. Other than some power supply issues on the amp and tuner, still working fine.
That sounds like an awesome system Jeff. As I posted earlier, I remember seeing Mac components going for a lot more than my whole system at the store I bought from

Bluejacket was great when we were there last month. Highly recommended! Enjoyed the Gordon Biersch in Navy yards(?) as well. First visit to a GB

I'm gonna have to ask the old man about the poster the next time I see him to find out if it was his or his father's. He is 89 and his old family home has been converted into our office. Tons of neat old stuff in the basement including an old cider press, biro meat saw, and some old broken wine barrels, as well as some old local Breweriana: signs, mirrors, etc
