Default INDY Specialty Malt Group Buy

Post your interest here!

Here is the CURRENT pricing. If we can come up with a large quantity we may be able to get a better deal. PLEASE POST INTEREST HERE. I will update this OP sheet as I get more interest.

If we do this buy... why not throw in yeast as well? Stock up, BMW has great pricing on that as well and you wont be paying to ship anything extra.



For comparison, here are the great grain sale prices per pound.

Carapils (5lb) 1.60
20L (5lb) 1.50
40L (5lb) 1.50
60L (5lb) 1.70
80L (5lb) 1.50
Special B (5lb) 1.60
Aromatic (5lb) 1.60
Biscuit (5lb) 1.60
Roasted Barley (5lb) 1.70
Chocolate (5lb)1.70
Vienna (5lb) 1.99

This is for brewers who can pick up thier items in Indianapolis only. We did a group hop buy and bought 50 pounds of hops for $1 an ounce this summer. Looking to put together some buying power for specialty malts.

Cool guys... when I get the GF great grain sale pricing, I will have comparisons for you.

This wont be a 75% off deal like the hops were, but we can save a few bucks by pooling our buying power.

BMW seems to have superior pricing and shipping. You can go to Eds site and view the pricing on the specialty malts. I will get a spreadsheet up here this week with the varieties that I will be buying (10-15 types) and we can go from there.

Ideally I would like to get 7-10 people involved and purchase between 20-40 pounds of each malt.

Like I said, this wont be like the killer deal that we got on hops this summer, but it will beat any pricing that I have seen out there, shipping will be negligible at a flat rate of $6.99 for the order.

UPDATE UPDATE... we need interest in this!

BMW has better pricing shipped than anyone out there, I mean, you are in front of a computer, go look.

GF has great sack prices on base malts ($36-$40), but thier per pound pricing is rediculous.($2 plus??)

If we can drum up some interest and some quantity, we may be able to better the advertised prices at BMW, just sayin. Ed is waiting to see what we can put together as far as quantity. Ideally, Id like to see 10-15 varieties and anywhere from 200-400 pounds.

We can do this, think about it... if you buy your grains pound by pound, recipe by recipe over the next 12 months, how much $$ are you wasting on shipping? If we can get a qty. discount... then again, how much are you wasting?

We can beat LHBS pricing. Ed already beats anyones shipped grain pricing... and we may be able to amass enough volume to better that price.

Between this and the hop buy, we can really drive down all grain ingredient pricing for us Indy area brewers.
