I can take some as well, as I am using 45 pounds of 2-row grain today.

I like the idea of limiting the base malts, keeps things simple. I'd vote for the canada 2-row and buying the more traditional malts, as in TF anything, Best Maltz Vienna, etc. I would also like to try that czech pils malt next buy. Has anyone noticed any difference between the franco-belges stuff vs. anything else?

Also if we're buying enough 2-row then maybe we should just buy a full ton tote and have people bring their own buckets/bags. That might add some work of weighing out stuff, but it would require no searching for sacks, at least of 2-row. It would also cut out the unnecessary bags if people just put it straight into buckets. You save something like 5 cents a pound which ends up being an extra few sacks at the end, just a thought.

Bill did those sacks of wheat come in yet? I could pick up tomorrow if so.

ok. here's the latest on the missing grain:

(2) GW-OWHT TBU should arrive today.

(1) GW-O2RP Arcticz1 being picked up tomorrow.

(1) GW-O2RP martyphee being picked up tomorrow.

(1) BZ-VIEN cyclogenesis will be substituted for the Franco Belges Vienna and picked up tomorrow.

(1) 50 Lb. bucket of PBW ypaul2000 is being picked up tomorrow.

Anyone free tomorrow during the day? Maybe we can meet somewhere in the vicinity of 290/294/88 which is Hillside I believe. I will have everything with me. Let me know.

ok, both ghoti and mikescooling expressed interest in this. Can one person take 2 and the other 1 bag? can we let ghoti take preference since he did create the database? what do you guys think?

I am of the mindset that we shouldn't impose limits on ones options, especially now that hey have opened up even more options.

I certainly do not mind schlepping sacks around for a short time while picking up. Maybe an extra pallet or two being handy so instead of quadruple handling sacks, larger orders can get sorted and stacked to the side while digging for whatever secondary grain you were initially after.

What do people think about allowing the warehouse to automatically make substitutions on out of stock grains? This way everything gets delivered at once. Just throwing it out there.

Personally, I'd rather mine get cancelled than subbed or an option to sub myself. I had this happen a couple buys ago with honey malt...I ordered a couple pounds online and I tried again the next run...

I like pellets better.
