I agree with Barc. If my logic is correct we will still pay the same amount per pound but will pay more per bag for the grain. I say this because I called North Country and was quoted the same price for a single bag as the price sheet show. However, the freight for 2 bags to the Raleigh area was $50 via Fed Ex. If we have 22 bags and the freight on a pallet is $180 that amounts to ~$8.20 per bag in freight instead of $4.05 for a full pallet. It still is a great savings.

If someone wants to split some bags of crystal, we could do that too. I could definitely use some 60, 20, and 10 but I can't use 50 lbs. of each. Maybe split the bags 3 ways. Same goes for vienna, carapils, etc. Just an idea...
3 of us are splitting a bag of Great Western 15L, we wanted 10L but doesn't seem to be available. Thomas Fawcett has a "Crystal Malt II" which is 62L - 68L and a Pale Crystal in the 20s, Franco-Belges has a caramel pilsen 8-12L and a couple others have Munich's in the 10 range.
I'd be up for splitting a bag of 60L or anything else with folks and if need be could go ahead and get another bag of 2-row.
Anyone want to split a bag of rice hulls? 38 cents/pound vs $2/lb locally. Kinda silly to have 50 pounds of rice hulls but its not like they'll go bad :-D
I'm definately in for 2 bags. I dont know of what yet though, as I have only brewed 1 AG batch to date. I printed the whole 34 page PDF so I can read it and decide on the throne. That is where great decisions are made.
