Agreed, if this is going to happen I'd be down for a couple sacks at least

You (and anyone else) would surely be welcome. With 3 children and my wife at home, I don't participate in group activities other than the grain buys, but there are many and the group is very open to new members.
Thanks for the knowledge. I'll certainly look into that if we don't get off the ground with this.

In. I'd also like to go halfs on a bag of MO and Wheat Malt.

-edit- Just to be clear, I'll be in on this if it's a late winter/spring sort of deal.

He never answered my email inquiry regarding the same subject, either. Bumped into him in person and inquired that way - he said he'd have to get back to me.

That was in like, August.

Probably other homebrew clubs in central mass or ct will use a similar system.
After brewing for... well, I dunno' a dog's age, remind me why I haven't join WORT yet.

chesterbelloc, the worts really is a great group of people. It took me a few years to join up, too, but I have been glad that I did.

Is anyone placing an order for grain really soon? I'm planning on brewing on 1/1/11 and need to get some UK 2 Row and Maris Otter Pale Malt for the brewing (I'll get the specialty grain from the LHBS)...

If no one is placing an order, what's a good place to order from that will get it to me in time? I'd be looking to place the order by Monday at the outside, so that I have it in time for the brewing... Unless this is too close to the brew day to think about ordering up about 20 pounds of grain (crushed right now, since I don't have a mill, yet)...

Golddiggie - Strange Brew in Marlborough on Route 20 is a good place to go to get your supplies if you need something between now and January 11th.

That's where I've been going... Just was hoping to get some better pricing on the base malts... Brew day is 1/1/11, not 1/11/11... Although, I might brew on 1/11/11 as well (never know)...

Golddiggie - if you want to buy one of my sacks of Best Malz pils at my cost (~$35) then you are welcome to do so. PM me if you are interested and think the cost savings is worth your while. I live about 20 minutes from you.
