I've been thinking about a group buy also, but after seeing Brewmaster's Warehouse prices, I doubt I'd save that much money. I don't work for them or anything, it's just where I've always bought my recipes.

I think they quoted me $46 for 50lb Briess 2-row. And they'll mill it for you too. Just bring a container.

Of course, this isn't for sale on their website otherwise they'd have to ship it for their $6.99 flat rate.

Yes, the savings are worth the hassle.

I go to Newnan often and I could use 4 sacks.

I've done a couple group buys- so I may be able to help with info and such.
Heck, I'll do the spreadsheet to get this going.

Here are some of the points;
You buy sacks- usually 50-55 lbs.
A pallet holds 42 sacks.
You pay a certain amount shipping per pallet regardless of how many sacks are on the pallet.
So, you pay less shipping per sack the closer you get to 42.
Also, access to a loading dock is important.
Without it you pay extra for the thingy to unload.
You'll have to pay with a credit card for the entire pallet.
Usually whoever is doing the buy gets everyone else to pay him or her before the order.

I am not sure if you guys are interested or not, but you guys are more than welcome to order with is. Our pallet is almost full, so we could order two pallet. I have an account with NCM so that wouldn't be an issue. I could even help fill the second pallet. We would have to have to have the pallets delivered to the Nashville area. PM me if you guys are interested.

Thanks for the offer.

Does anyone who wants to do a group buy have a large enough vehicle that can drive up to TN and pick up grain?

A full size truck can fit all 42 sacks of grain on it. I could probably get about 4-10 sacks to help fill the second pallet. You could could also do some splits to help fill the pallet.

Thanks.

Seems like 10-12 sacks so far.

While I need grain- unless a bunch more jump on board soon, I wouldn't hold you order too much.
