Not really "good times brewing", but ... Actually gave up on the closest LHBS several months ago after another trip resulting in substitutions and lack of ingredients. Have been ordering everything from Midwest since. They've been doing free shipping for seems like 2 months now. Doesn't matter if you're ordering 30 pounds of grain, still free shipping. I type in what I want (they always have it), add to cart, check out, shows up at my door three days later. No substitutes, no shortages, anything I want, when I want it, and all from the comfort of my lazy boy.
