You guys are lucky, I have to mail order in all my stuff. Being in the Four Corners is beautiful, but we don't have a LHBS. It's a real bear trying to get wet yeast down in my neck of the woods.

Have you talked with the local craft brewers in the area? In the front range several of the craft breweries are very home brewer friendly; they will give away yeast from old batches. Just some clean up involved and it's off to the fermenter. We also play with a centrifuge to really clean up the yeast. There's plan on the web to make a centrifuge with a desktop pc fan, so it's not rocket science.

Sounds yummy. Let me know how it turned out.
Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Porter
I have a robust chocolate porter in the primary right now. I am going to add cherries and chipotle in the secondary. The grains should provide a chocolate flavor although I might add some cocoa powder to the secondary as well once I get a taste. May also add some lactose although I don't want to go overkill on sweetness.

Closest to my house is Beer at Home on about 120th and Huron. Good guys, very helpful. Lots of new brews getting done all the time.
Used to buy from Brew Hut in Aurora when Scott owned it. Since I moved to Thornton I have not been back but hear it is doing well.
I brewed a Russian Imperial Stout today at 1.106 og and 63.8 ibu. should turn out pretty good. Thinking im going to name it "Kalashnikov's RIS"

i get most of my ingredients from Do Your Brew in Westminster. Terry (owner) is always there and one of the most knowledgeable guys about beer ive ever met. plus he has the BEST prices. i live about 3 min from Beer at Home and i make the 20 min drive down to Terry's shop EVERY time.
