    big thanks for the heads up on this.
    just yesterday, while brewing, i was lamenting not getting my order in early enough on a different hop site because they were all out of leaf hops of citra!
    problem solved.

    its all in the accuracy and the 29 dollar one and the 39 (?) dollar one are both not accurate enough for wine making. .3 pH and .2pH respectivly is way too big of a gap.

    the 75 dollar one is plenty accurate though

    I don't know if i'd consider malt extract to be a deal, but for those that are stuck doing partial mash or even all extract beers, this is some good news:

    For those of us who can't get that great of a deal on bulk or don't have a grain mill. coupled with their 6.99 shipping on anything under $100 this might be the reason I brew JLW's Bastard clone next.

    I don't make wine, would the mid level one work for simple mash ph, and simple things like verifying my star San is still good?

    yeah, the cheaper ones would be fine for that kinda stuff. even most wine making its fine for, but when you get into white wines, meads, and ciders, you really need to be precise because any little deviation is readily apparent.

    ok, so this isn't exactly beer related, but this was definitely the deal of the week for me.

    it's not a great pic since it's dark out. but you get the idea.

    it cost me $65 from the Home Depot. That's what i call - Winning.

    that's identical to the one i use. about the same price too.

    tons of room, but for cold to low smoking you can only use the half the main grill, the other half gets too hot. \

    still tons of room though. most i have ever smoked on it was 45 pounds of dry cured ham, that's also what i make all my bacon on.

    I assume you mean the side nearest the firebox is to warm to cold smoke, even with the flue open and the damper closed?

    yeah, the heat rolls in there on that side.

    things works great though, don't get me wrong, i love it.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I didn't really buy it to cold smoke with, I have that small vertical smoker for cheeses and stuff. Though I figure I could do some stuff on this one too.

    some things you want to cold smoke for awhile first though, like fish and bacon, and then ramp up the heat for the final hour to finish it.

    latest deal of the week:

    http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com/scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=112

    old yeast for half price. it might be a crap shoot to see if it's viable or not, but i have to imagine that most of the homebrew shops around here have had the yeast sitting around that long anyway. produced in feb 2012, but for half price, why not grab a few?

    they also have amarillo for $22/ lb. (2010, though)

    midwest supplies has a white burgundy wine kit as buy one get one free. that's a pretty tremendous deal. saves over 50 bucks. kits has good reviews too. i ordered them. if you have some extra fermenter room, pick em up. white wine is very different than red in that it is mostly meant to be drank young and therefor it is perfectly fine to bottle it in beer bottles with crown caps. you can keg it easily too for a sparkling white wine.

    shipping is about 20 bucks, because these things are heavy, but you're getting close to 3 cases of wine (per case), which makes it really really cheap still.
    comes out to over 5 cases of wine for a litte less than 80 bones.

    i don't think it will be crappy. plus, white wine fuels orgies, always good to have an ample supply on hand.

    Luring young girls to your home and trapping them in a pit is not an orgy regardless of what you feed them.

    @benvarine why do you say it's crappy white wine? Do you just dislike white wine or is there a reason why this is a bad kit?
