Should we try to get a CMC buy together for later in the Spring when we may be able to get a larger buy together?
I think that is a good idea. Personally, I only get the Pils malt and buying through CMC is definitely better than going to the LHBS.

Pretty funny. "Yeah guys, have you thought of opening a brewery? That's the easiest way to buy in bulk."

For those in Boulder/Longmont- Hop To It seems to have decent prices on full sacks, and I spoke to Mark at Bald Brewer (Longmont) who can do Rahr 2-Row/Pale/Wheats at $55, Maris Otter at $65. Might be worth calling ahead at BB, although he usually has sacks on hand (somehow, that place is tiny!). Maybe not the best prices in the world, but supporting the locals (in the case of BB, a 1 or 2 man operation).

Guessing that everyone probably knew of these two, but just in case...

We have investigated every other group buy's malting co.? Should be possible, but simply an increase in shipping. Utah? Nevada?

I will look into it, maybe you guys can too

Not sure what you're sayin here Ben? Are you talking about other wholesale maltsters?

CMG's response makes sense. Wholesalers are starting to crack down on direct to consumer and ebay sales. One reason is that it's a tax issue. There is no tax on wholesale purchases. Also LHBS will get frustrated and stop buying from wholesalers that sell to the public. It cuts them out of business just like if CMG started selling on their website direct to consumers. I like a good price just as much as the next guy and would love to see a group buy happen, but their stance doesn't surprise me.

At the last Hop Barley and the Alers meeting in Boulder, the guy from Hop To It announced that they were working on a group buy or discount system for 50lb bags. I think he mentioned buy 3 get one free or half off or something like that. Call them up and ask about it.

Late spring I'd likely be in for some (1 or 2 bags).
