Well, hit my first snag.  My on-line supplier is out of 2-row and will be getting some in a few weeks but I want to get started so I'm taking the advice of people on here and making a direct substitution of Maris Otter for the 2-row.  I bought a 55 lb bag so I can do a few batches with this instead of the plain 2-row.  Hope I don't screw up the mashing process too much but since the cost difference is about $20 more for the bag and if I get 4 batches out of it, then if I screw it up I'm only out 5 bucks extra a batch.  That's a relatively low percentage when you look at how much I've invested in cooler/grain mill/kegs etc.  Hope someday that the cost per batch averages out to a reasonable amount...

my prediction - The cost per batch will go down and the taste of your beer will go up. ;)
