We have a great host with great prices. Don't like that AB InbBev bought them out but I digress....
I confess that I often buy yeast through another vendor because NB takes at least 3 days to get me my yeast once it ships. In summer, that's a LONG time (in fact I've tried to convince them to open something in Columbus, OH since a major competitor has opened in PA not to mention we are 8 hour drive to 70% of the US population).
Any who I ordered yeast 7/3 from another vendor for the three beers I have planned for this weekend. They finally shipped today, but likely won't make it tomorrow, and will sit until Monday. I had to go to a LHBS to buy the yeast. Three yeast @ $30! Don't ya hate when this happens? I hardly use the LHBS place because it's SLOW with only one worker, EXPENSIVE, and they often give advice that isn't wrong per se, just opinionated (that 3oz of Citra in a 10 gal batch is WAY WAY to much).
I hate when this happens. Now, my yeast is going to arrive and I'll have to figure out what to do with it.
