This will sound weird, but Amazon is amazing for homebrewers. There are great prices on most brewing gear, books, and even ingredients. Getting most of those with free shipping is even better! I use prime all the time, and I cant really see going back to life without it. Oh yeah, a prime member can share their membership with people that they live with, so you could possibly be giving yourself the gift of prime as well! I’m sure that I spend more on amazon now that I have prime, but I also buy fewer cart-stuffers trying to get above the $35 minimum for free shipping!

So consider prime to be a great gift for anyone who already has a strong amazon history, or for people who don’t live close to a homebrew shop! It’s also super useful for buying parts for DIY projects, like a cast iron draft tower
