That Chinook is pretty cheap, it seems to be sold out most places I look or close to $20/#. I think I might just go for a few pounds of Simcoe and Amarillo though, Starman makes them look so good and whole leaf works so much better with my system. Has anyone tried contacting Hopunion directly and calling MCM out on their bullsh*t?

MCM will sell us hops that they have in stock at the South Holland warehouse. However, they will not drop ship hops from another warehouse or sell home brewers contracts. They do not want to be bombarded with home brewer groups or clubs requests for hop contracts.

Looks like its time to start a very unprofitable business then . Not sure what the legal fees and business license would run.

I wouldn't mind being able to source Dingemans and Simpsons malts as well. I wonder who/how those are distributed.. Cargill?

A church in South Evanston runs an organic bulk food co-op out of some back room that's only open Saturday mornings and run by volunteers to keep overhead to a minimum, everyone who shops there pays $3 a year to help cover costs. Something like that for a homebrew shop would be awesome.

Just received an email telling me that Briess products are available to us. Should I modify all of the 2-row to Briess? Should we open the buy so people can modify their own orders?
