I have been looking for a good mail order supply to supplement the
(often limited) selection available from our local shop. My first
inclination was to find somewhere just over the state border, since
shipping would be minimal and most out-of-state mail orders do not
charge sales tax. That 6% savings should help offset the shipping
costs.

We were discussing the massive order I mailed to Brew-For-Less in
Chicago over coffee this morning, and my brewing buddy mentioned that
Minnesota requires you to pay sales tax on out-of-state purchases.
There is a special line for it on the state income tax return form.
Guess I'd better save those receipts for tax time! ;-)
