My order is good. I would pickup in Poughkeepsie ... I will split the fuel costs with you if you decide to pick it up in New Milford.

I would be good with picking up my grain in New Milford, CT. If someone would be willing to mule 2 sacks to Manchester, I would work with that also. I checked the google doc and my order is correct, 2 x Briess 2row

I will check this thread daily for updates. PM me if you want to work out transport deals.

When would this buy happen and be delivered? I am out of the state Oct. 2 through Oct. 10. Let me know if it would be over this time period.

The buy is full so as soon as we work out the logistics of pickup / delivery i will request payment from folks, when i have all payments i will place the order. it usually arrives the 2nd day. Id guess delivery would be sometime the first week of october.

im thinking delivery in New Milford might work best.

1/3 of the sacks are going to New Milford
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour west
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour east

i will mule for the sacks going to poughkeepsie (west). everyone else can either pickup in new milford or coordinate someone to mule east.

Ok, take a swing at some coordination. It looks like indibrewer, roguemc flatfour64 and brewskerdoo (me) are the 4 central(ish) CT participants that might want to work together to get our bags back to the Hartford area most economically.
If one of the 4 of us can pick up all 12 sacks, we could come up with some number per sack each of us would owe to cover your expenses.
Any volunteers?
I work in East Hartford and live in Berlin I so I could potentially do the pickup on a Sat. and meet up on the following Monday in E. Hartford to distribute.
Of course if anyone else can get the central CT 12 sacks closer to us, that's even better.

I have no issues doing that but I own a sedan and don't think I can fit all those bags in the trunk? I think whoever brings back those bags we all can meet at the park and ride lot in Manchester right off exit 62 at a set time.

Does anyone have a vehicle that could haul the 12 bags? I have a little Mazda that couldn't handle the 600#'s. I too could pick up my bags at exit 62 in Manchester, I'm just not sure what our options are at this point.

Flatflour, brewskerdoo do you guys have a vehicle to haul the grains? If not then we have to look for other options.

K47k is there a possibility to stick to original plan?

I can handle the 12 bags. My truck gets around 14 mpg unloaded. Google
says my round trip Berlin / New Milford millage is around 90 miles. Some quick calculatin' and i come up with roughly $2.25 / bag to cover my gas. That sound reasonable?

That sounds good to me brewskerdoo, I would pay you $5 cash to bring my 2 sacks to Berlin. Once we know hard dates, we can set up a time for me to pick up from you.

Is there any option to pick it in east Hartford or Manchester? Berlin is still around 30 miles for me.

K47k any thoughts on sticking to plan?
