    Since my LHBS decided to quit carrying, and didn't offer to order in some Fermcap-S for me I ordered it from Williams Brewing. Even though their flat rate shipping is only $6.95, I'm not going to pay a total of $17 for a small item like that, so also ordered a 7 gallon Fermonster with spigot and some extras for it. I like my LHBS, but I also want a little service.

    Is that how you got free shipping on the Fermcap, by buying more stuff? You know we drive our wives crazy thinking like that!!

    I do that from time to time, but this time just ordered more stuff to justify the flat rate shipping. I did need another fermenter any way. Actually paid the same for the one with spigot that my LHBS gets for the one without, which saved $4 and saved another $3 on the extras. Savings paid for the shipping.

    The wives drive us crazy buying stuff they/we don't need just because it's on sale. I guess we're even :)

    “Hi, honey. I’m home! Guess how much money I just saved you?” said every wife ever.

    Mine is lost to quilting, including a $5,600 long arm machine. I share your pain, brother!
