Aight folks, sorry for the delay. The group buy has been posted on Masherator:
http://mash.azurewebsites.net/GroupB...oups/Details/3

Shipping is $4-5/bag (depending on surcharges). See the link above for more details.

In the interest of full disclosure: there is an extremely small markup applied to the bags. There are many reasons for this mainly:

  1. In order to maintain the account I must be a homebrew shop and selling at cost gets my rep yelled at by his other accounts in CT. Charging a buck or two per bag and claiming to make it up in volume was enough to let him off the hook
  2. I need to cover costs I incur. There is a small hosting fee and I have purchased bags for splits in the past but the big issue going forward will be PayPal fees. We've always used the "personal transfer" feature to avoid fees but I was warned that PayPal is cracking down on this and heard of some whose accounts were banned! So...I am going to use the proper billing features of PayPal which *should* make things easier but does incur some fees.

For clarity; I am not trying to make a living at it I just don't want it to cost me anything. Plus if I can make this even slightly cash positive I can do it a bit more often. If you have questions or concerns about this PM me.

i'm not to familiar with the different brands of malt, which on the list would be considered a british pale malt used as a base for an irish dry stout. i usually email my recipe to my lhbs and pick it up mixed in a bag

I would use TF-MOPA. Do you have a grain mill?
