Have you tried logging on again? I'm pretty sure I confirmed you.

1 Cascade.



Last call...if we cant hit 11lbs we wont purchase.
9lbs NB (urbanmyth, ThirstT, cadwallion*2, RC, metic, hot427cobra, TheBreweryUnderground, brewingmeister)
4lbs Magnum (metic, RC, ThirstT, Neopol)
1lb Warrior (wegz15) -I could really do Magnum or Warrior. I want a solid bittering in the freezer.


***Closed***11lbs Cascade (cadwallion*2, TheOneBuz*3, RC*2, hot427cobra, Jgrove10, TheBreweryUnderground, Demon)

Just two more pounds of Northern Brewer left people! Doesn't anybody have a recipe for a double imperial anchor steam? That would use those hops up real quick.

Do set the cutoff by pallet count (currently at 4) or by date which people have voted today as being the cutoff date? Currently, we are at 131 sacks. The maximum sacks per pallet allowed is 42. So 4 pallets yields 168 sacks. However, we would need to get a fifth pallet like last time for all of the hops, chemicals, etc. Keep in mind that the shipping costs and the one time domain registration costs will be spread across the number of sacks just to keep it simple. Do we set the total number of sacks at 164 so that we can allow 220 pounds (4 sacks * 55 Lbs) for the rest of the items? Or do we just keep the buy open through the weekend then amortize the shipping/domain costs across however many sacks we have? I'm indifferent so it's up to you guys.

I'd say let it ride through the weekend, and cut it off at 164 sacks or Monday at noon which ever comes first. Amortize the costs on a per bag basis to keep it simple.
If if closes Monday the 8th and everyone pays by the 15th, potential delivery by Friday the 19th?
