so i finally stopped at the little old man's roadside truck to check out the honey and assorted natural products. come to find out he gets honey in 55 gal drums, and not just clover honey, but wildflower and other types of flowers too. i'm getting pretty excited and start probing about buying bulk. he repeatedly confirms that he has a solid 55gal drum of the unique honey that he let me try(it was really good too). i REALLY want to make mead again, but something bigger than one gal at a time since it takes so damn long to age. the old fellow had pint, quart, and a gallon of honey present and was very eager to sell me a pint for $7.50 american. i tell him, "i'm interested in the pint today, but i am VERY interested in getting somewhere to the effect of 5 gal. i need to check my recipe first. i make mead, honey wine..." to which he replies "i don't have enough for 5 gal, but i have one gallon there." pointing to the jug on the table. and pretty much for there refused to sell me more than what was currently on the table. why, WHY do these old fucks have to be so uppity about homebrew?!!?!! i ran into the same issue with the beekeepers at the local festival grounds. hyper conservatives in the bible belt piss me off. anyone run into this problem in other areas? people refuse to sell you products once they know it's for homebrew?
