Sorry everyone, was looking at this thread and not the spreadsheet and didn't realize how fast the 2nd palette was filling. I feel bad.

What count do you think we need on a 3rd skid to make it worth it? Min flat rate per bag is $1.55 at full palatte for $65/42bags. 21 more bags would throw the distribution up to $1.89 a bag.

I'll keep updating split requests and hope the third fills at the same clip as #2.

I'd say if we can keep it under $1/lb on the third pallet, I'd gladly pay a little extra to get it. Can't find grain in lhbs under $1.30/lb.

Worst case scenario... 8 lonely 55# bags on a palette shipped for $65 is roughly $0.15 freight overhead per lb. As long as your base price is under $0.85/lb, you'd be in the ballpark to make your $1 a pound Pinto.

Best case... full skid 42 bags @ 55# = $.03 freight overhead per pound.

That's before fuel surcharges... I don't know how those are distributed.

I PMd for 4 sacks, just 38 more to go. There's gotta be a few of you out there dying to make an End of History clone using 3 bags of base malt and a bathtub as a makeshift mashtun, right?

So that's 32 sacks left, you could fill a swimming pool with the grains and extra pounds of saaz, steep them on a hot summer day, then let it open ferment. Everyone brings a few kegs to dip in and we call it a day.

Or maybe just 6-8 more people grabbing a few sacks and it'll fill up in no time.
