Bulk Grain Group Buy (Indianapolis, In)
 
Hey guys

I am considering a drive up to Mid Country Malt with my little trailer in tow. Wanted to know if anyone was wanting to go in on a bulk grain buy.

I, myself, am looking to get a couple bags of 2-row and a bag of Marris Otter. Also want to split maybe a sack of Crystal 60, and other specialty grains. I participated in the Hop bulk buy with The Pol and it went great. I'm really hoping to get enough interest to split some sacks of specialty grains.

I will take orders from people in a location that's on my route from S. Chicago to Indianapolis. (that being relatively close to I-65).

Post here so I can gauge interest!
cheers
Bryan

On the site you have to click the Maltster Brand, then the specific malt link (the malt name) and select "55lb" in the drop box and you will see the price for a sack.

Here's a basic spreadsheet that hopefully will grow as people want to add to it. There are other maltsters available on the website and lots of different grains.. I will add to the spreadsheet on request.

I am all for group buys but my only problem with a grain buy is not having a grain mill. If you ever put together a hop buy, let me know.

I'm interested when are you going ? Kinda busy atm, kid graduating and family coming into to town. But I'm getting close to finishing up my stand and will need something to put in it.

I have enough hops to last me a year or more thanks to The Pol.

Well, I was thinking about going in a couple weeks, but I can always postpone it and simply buy a bag of 2-row at the local shop to tide me over. When do you think you would be game?
