i work 5 minutes away from mid country, so the group buy would actually cost me more in gas to pick it up than i would save in the bulk discount.

plus i just picked up a few sacks two weeks ago.

speaking of my recent order, i think this might be helpful for the group buy:

I need to do a final inventory on grain, but other items I am definitely interested in splitting:

- A pound of Paradise seeds. I only want 4 oz but hopefully others are interested as well. 5g are usually a couple bucks at the LHBS and these prices are roughly 80-90% less than that if not more.
- Bitter Orange peel. Would prefer to take 4 oz but would take 8 oz if needed to get the 1lb bag to make a split work.

Yes, that's fine, I will do that for my grain order, but to coordinate sharing of sacks or adjuncts? I am just putting it out there in case others are interested in those items.

I don't have any issue with breaking/weighing grains or anything else that is dry. I have numerous digital scales up to 50 capacity. However, I would like to keep the accounting simple. I suggest that one person purchases the full item, I'll break it down, weigh it and package it in plastic bags but the monies would need to be settled amongst those sharing. Does that sound reasonable?

If people are going to be paying individually based on the spreadsheet Ace is compiling, why would it be necessary to coordinate between those that are splitting the sacks or products? Just ensure a full package size order is made and then collect the partial payment as part of the "invoices".

I appreciate you offering to split things up but that may be more work than is reasonable depending on the order size. Just something to consider.

Cheers!

OK, since this is the first time we'll try it out. People can split full items up amonst themselves. I'll weigh it and repackage it. But I'm not breaking up anything liquid, that gets to messy. Hell, even DME gets pretty sticky. Is that OK with everyone? Ace?

Doesn't matter to me. Since the spreadsheet can allow fractions, it would make it easy to allow people to split the cost.

I do agree with Randar that you splitting up bags is above and beyond what is required, but I'll leave that decision up to you.

Let's just leave it out there for now. If there's enough interest then we can revisit. Anymore people inquire about joining in?

count me in for at least 5 sacks maybe more depending on the sack price. PM'd for price list.

Do they also sell DME? If so I will let the few extract brewers in my area know.
