Brad, where was the pickup for round 3?
The pickup for round 3 was at my brew partners' office. Not sure that is available again, but I'll ask.

I don't have the time to organize the buy this time around, but would be interested in a couple sacks if someone else is willing to take the laboring oar.

Whoever is going to organize and keep track of it this time, I would contact Tealio and have him get the current price list from CMG.

Cheers.

I just received a current price list from CMG. Looks a little different this time.

Please email me at tealio@mac.com and I'll forward it to you.

I don't think we will have a problem making it to the first pallet it seems, just need an organizer and freight location.

As far as splits, I would recommend to try and manage splits between brew buddies on your own.

Same goes for specialties, as there is generally much request for them. My personal opinion is at my brew level of about 100 gallons a year, I would not benefit from investing in specialties since I brew all styles. I also live 10 min from HBHQ, so I get my specialties at the same time as my yeast and only invest a couple dollars per 10 gallon batch.

I figured I would post since I'm getting a few requests for the price list on how the pricing works-

Sadly it looks like they have dropped the price break for the 2000-4000 lb order (Our minimum when ordering is one pallet which is 42 sacks at 50-55 lbs a sack depending on domestic or import grain.)

Maybe someday we would get up to 8 pallets and enough for the price break!

However two pallets may not be much more on freight than one, so that could be a price break if we got to 84 sacks!

I calculated a couple and it is a slight increase.

For example- Great Western Two Row rose from last buy pricing of $28.50 ---> $30.50

Baird's Maris Otter (my favorite) was $40.70 ---> $42.35

So yeah, $2 a sack increase on the Jan 2013 price sheet.

Also, for any new buyers looking at prices- If it is a per pound rate listed, look at the 2000# column and then the sack size usually to the left of the 2000#, multiply your per pound cost by sack size to reach your price.

There is no tax on grain.

Freight was $150 flat for the last buy, so plan to add about $3.57 for each sack to cover your individual freight cost.

So $34 a sack for basic Great Western 2Row vs. $58 locally (I think this is the local shop price for 2 row, someone could check). I would call the local price $52 to be fair with a 10% brew club discount.

Group buy would still be about a 40% discount vs local shop, so still a worthwhile endeavor.

I'm in for 3 sacks. I'd love to help organize since no one has stepped up, but don't think I can take it all on.

I'd be willing to help organize. I live over in north Fort Worth. Not sure if that's a problem for anyone.

I don't think that would be an issue, but the larger requirement holding the next buy back is the freight location. Once we have a freight location I can email you the organizing info and verify it is something we can do.

In my opinion the freight location would need to be Dallas, as a majority of the buyers are based here.

Hi Guys, I live in Dallas but I work in Fort Worth so I can help with transport if that helps anyone. I would also be down for a couple of sacks of two row and a couple of sacks of pils. I could also help with anything I can do from my office like keeping track of payments etc.
