I tell you what, at this rate I think I'm investing in the creation of a large hop farm/ processing facility west of the burbs! Anyone else in?
There's enough bank-owned farmland out there from foreclosures that we could probably use for free for a few years before anyone knew we were there...

Inevitably, there will be one person who drops out so you may still be able to get in.

If there is any extra room, please PM me... I can always use more grain.

And if there is any room for any of the hop splits, I am interested.

IMPORTANT

From the distributor:

"Good morning Bill,

We have received your quote request and will get that to you as soon as it is processed. The New Zealand an Australian Hops, US Northern Brewer and US Saaz are not available for spot sale. We cannot sell Brewcraft items to homebrewers and that includes all fruit products and most spices as well as some chemicals. The Irish Moss is not available to homebrewers but the Supermoss is. It comes in a 3.5 lb ($40) or a 7.5 lb package ($83). Would you like to substitute? We do offer the Coriander, Sweet Orange Peel and Bitter Orange Peel from San Francisco Herb. Would you like to substitute?

Thanks and have a great day,
Mary"

I say we let the distributor make the substitution for us. What about the hops? Do we just drop them or substitute. Myself, I don't care to substitute so I'm leaning towards dropping them without substituting. Let's try to wrap this up by this afternoon, say 1 pm?

Bill, please take the liberty to drop anything in my order that you need to. I am still planning to contact a vendor or two, to see what we can get in terms of bulk hop pricing, if anyone has recommendations or contacts, please submit an RFQ or some info and I'll chase it.

Thank you.
Dave

Thanks for the leg work Dave! I know there are a couple of hop yards (gorst valley, Wisconsin hop exchange) in Wisconsin that don't require contracts, but their variety is limited and their prices aren't the greatest. Bill I'm not going to try to substitute my 11 Pounds of Nelson sauvin at this point. What they have left available is very lack luster and I can get those hops anywhere for a decently reasonable price. I apologize to those who so eagerly filled the first hop split of this group buy. Better luck in the future I guess. On a positive note, I purchased 11 pounds of the "styrian celia" at the last group and I like them quite a bit! If you brew Belgian or English I would recommend taking a look at them. They are cheap and available. Also they just made an appearance in the most recent northern brewer catalogue as a premier hop in one of their seasonal recipe kits.

Let me know if I should let them make the substitutions.
