Keepitcold, you've gotta keep us updated on this. We've dumped a lot of money your way and it's very unsettling to only get updates every few days.

What is the holdup? How can we help you get this show on the road?

Let me clear the air here guys. Pretty much country malt is saying no more new accounts for home brewers. However I do have a back up plan. I will be ordering through the brewery I now work at. I will keep everyone updated. I haven't forgotten you guys. I appreciate your patience.

It should have been figured out Day 1 that you were ineligible to organize this group buy through Country Malt. Why did it take so long for you to tell us this?

Now that you know we can't go through Country Malt, what is stopping us from proceeding with your backup plan ASAP?

I would presume the cost of the buy is going to be different if we're piggy-backing on the brewery's order. Is the cost going to be different or exactly the same?

If we don't get this resolved by the end of the week (this Friday) we should probably call it off. Thoughts?

Yeah, it's unfortunate that we didn't know before, but CM has been known to be slow to respond to homebrewers in the past. And, given that keepitcold JUST started a new job and will be asking a favor of them on our behalf, let's all cut him some slack. He did a GREAT job with the last buy I was involved in.

If you need to back out because you need your grain now or otherwise, I think it's wise to let him know as opposed to rushing this group buy. I think there are other brewers who would gladly fill in any gaps.

Keepitcold, keep us posted. Personally, I'm still in and I'm in no rush.

And thanks despite the hiccups!

Oh boy! That really sucks about CM. It felt good to hear what is going on at least. I think that has been the main issue for some of us. Reassurance. This is NYC ya know. I am willing to stay in if Keepitcold keeps up with the updates. The 300+ dollars was pretty much majority of my allowance for brewing this year. Therefore I don't brew until I get these grains. No brew no homebrew to enjoy. So I am a bit antsy.... Thou shall practice patience and dream of my next brew day.
