Bugman is trying to gage interest in a second pallet. I'm pretty sure that I know of at least 8 with you, but the spreadsheet isn't public. I'm waiting to hear back on another 4 bags myself from some locals.

Hey Hermit - I too am in the Ytown area (Hermitage PA area actually). I would be interested in 4-6 bags, if the pricing is good. With one barrel batches, I go through at least 2/3 of a bag of base grain with every brew.

I have been getting all my 50/55 lb. bags from the LHBS - Gregg at the Pumphouse in Struthers. I highly recommend him ( I am sure you probably already go to him seeing you are in the area.) I just give Gregg about 2 weeks notice (although he usually can get the grain in less than a week.) and pick it up at the store. His pricing is pretty good, I always thought. My last 55 lb. bag of Muntons Pearl British Pale was $50.95 out the door. The last 55 lb. MO was $62. the last Breiss 2-row was $45.

I like buying one bag at a time, as there is less $ outlay all at once, but if there is a significant savings, it would be worth it.

Are you guys able to order the other, non-grain stuff with this bulk order, too? (such as cleaners, kettle finings, sanitizers, etc?)

I'm pretty close to the limit of what I can pick up depending on what goes through. I might be able to do the 4. I'll have to check.

Hermit - No problem, man. Maybe I can pick them up myself, if there is enough interest in a second pallet.

Hey Bugman, are you getting them delivered to your place in Butler, and if so is that where everyone will be picking them up? I am not that far from Butler - 45 mins maybe.

I am good for 4-6 anyway. Will talk to a brewing buddy to see if he's interested in some too.

You know, I don't think I have ever used any of these maltsters' grain! I have been using Breiss, Muntons, and Weyermann for the base grains, though I may have used some of their specialty grains. Guess its time to try something new!

Don't know if it matters, but on a recent tour of Great Lakes Brewery, I saw lots of pallets of Great Western malt. I do know that they get silo deliveries as well, but don't know (and didn't ask-d'oh) what maltster that is.
