I'm one of those currently in for only hops although I plan on getting at least one sack of grain so I guess it doesn't matter. I think it really depends on what the issue is. I'm one of those that doesn't get to brew very often. I took part in buy #4 and figured today that I've gone through maybe 60-70 lbs. since then. I know that's a slow weekend for some of you guys!
By the same token, since I don't brew much, it really wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to wait until a future buy when I needed grain. It is nice to be able to get on in hops or supplies, but it's also just as easy to pick up a few oz. when needed from any other source.
