Woo hoo. I can always use more hops

How many more bags are needed for the order? I might know someone that would want a sack or two and could add it to my order. I might be up for adding hops also depending on what is available.

I hope to get in on it next time. I would be good for at least 10 bags.

So a few quick updates regarding the grain buy:

1. This buy is full (actually overfull). However, if you missed the cutoff - please keep an eye on this thread. Sometimes people drop out and you can step in.

That said, and I make no promises, but if the latecomers can muster up a 40 bag commitment here on the forums we can open another pallet. I count about 13 bags right now (provided Doublebird really wants 10). Again this is if AND ONLY IF we can fill a pallet and fill it quick. I want to finalize the order by next Wednesday (1/9). Otherwise, I can probably do another buy in March so you won't have to wait too long.

2. The supplier will be sending updated pricing next week which includes hop availability along with some malt price adjustments (argggh!). On first glance, the hop situation doesn't look great (i.e. the current prices and selection are not terribly enticing) but I will withhold final judgement until all the data is in.

3. I should be able to get a formal quote from the supplier by the end of next week so we can begin collecting funds. Unfortunately, the $200 flat rate I was originally quoted turned out to be an estimate. They weigh each pallet and charge upon shipping. So it may be a bit more or a bit less. I think the $200 ought to get us pretty close but bear in mind it is not a guaranteed rate.

Looks like I missed the group buy but would definitely be in for a few bags when this starts up again.
