Nice meeting you, too, Bill. Sorry we didn't have more time to talk brewing. Hope you enjoy the samples. Sticke Alt placed 3rd in Cat 23 in the HBT competition finals & Blueberry Porter won the Drunk Monk Challenge for Cat 21. If you have any questions about any of the beers, please feel free to ping me with a PM.

Thank you. I'll crack some of those open this weekend.

Yeah thanks again bmason for making this way smoother than I could have anticipated and completely stress-free for me. I also wish we had a little more time to talk brewing as I really love to chat about my obsessions especially with those who share them.

I may end up seeing one or more of you at local brew clubs as I ramp up the all-grain brewing, and bmason I should definitely have something worthwhile to bring you for your troubles if we go through this again (which I anticipate we will).

I've only made two batches from mine so far. About 40 pounds from my 110 pound purchase.

I didn't get in on the last one. I'd like to get some 2 row and Munich at the next buy.

If you guys are considering another group buy, I'd be interested this time around. I'd probably be in for 2 sacks.

I'd be interested in taking part a few months from now. I still have a lot of grain from another bulk buy that took place right before this one got set up, but I'm brewing for my wedding in September and will need to restock.
