I would still like to join in on that 11 pounds. Hopefully you'll still be sharing!

So, here's a thought that I had during the last (my first) group buy, that I wasn't comfortable asking. When choosing between malts, sometimes there seems to be a significant price difference (4-5 cents/lb) for the same product from different vendors. Case in point, 2-row from Canadia versus Great Western. Some of y'all chose the cheaper, some the more expensive.

I suppose that the answer may be, "it depends on the type of beer you're brewing", but that isn't a clear enough answer for me. Anyone have any thoughts to share on which company to go with, and why?

My Pickup does NOT have a top, but if I can carry it, I don't have a problem driving it to Aurora. Home brew is a bonus.

Frankly, I like meeting new brewers and if acting as the "Aurora Hub" allows me to meet more brewers I'm in. I'm also excited that I think I'll actually be in on one of these, I always seem to miss them!!!

Do the prices recalibrate to the lower values when a certain number of bags have been ordered... not that it matters for basic ordering quantities I know no prices are set until the quote has been processed but I was just curious.
