This is the link to buy #1. Please use that one for posting what you want. We can keep this thread going for questions and discussions. After the buy is full, I will close the above thread and open a new one each time that way I have all the purchases for a buy in one thread and don't have to sort through this one as it has been going a long time. If we can keep the other one dedicated to just I want xx grains posts, it will make it easier on me I think. We can use this thread to talk about other things. We'll see how that goes.

Thanks for setting this up stonebrewer.

Two quick questions:

1) Which price list are we using for buy #1?
2) Where is pickup?

I am using both price lists for buy #1. From what I have seen in the past, there are going to be folks that want the cheaper base grains, and others who will want some of the variety that the other list has. We will see how this goes and if the group gravitates toward one or the other, or if we need to continue with both sources.

Pickup will be at my house in Rockville. Once we get this thing off the ground I will PM folks that are in the buy with the address and dates/times to pickup.

I notice that both lists don't have DME. Was that a "no go" for either LHBS?

Not a no go, my focus to get started was on grain. If you want me to look into prices for DME, I can. I need to talk to Stefin sometime and pick his brain about trends when he was doing this. I don't use LME or DME very often but that doesn't mean I can't add it to the list if people want it. Just need to get a feeling for what people are going to want.

DME is a pain to deal with as soon as the bag is opened (regardless of whether it is opened voluntarily or accidentally). as long as the bag is kept sealed and unbroken, i'm sure it's fine. the consequences of a broken bag of DME can't be pretty. you can just sweep up spilled grains. DME, not so much.

suggestion: letting people split a bag of DME at your place is a bad idea... have them haul away the whole thing and let them deal with that elsewhere

rain could also be a huge pain. i'm not sure what type of fiber/paper/etc DME is packaged in, but i pray to the beer gods that it's waterproof. if it isn't, and the bag gets rained upon... yuck. you'd need a jackhammer to break that thing up afterwards. i'm assuming the manufacturer has thought of this.

I kept a tarp around... but only ever had to use it once. the DME is fairly well sealed in there, the Breiss and GW stuff was much worse, as it was one layer plastic.

That would be great if DME could be included. I'm only interested in full sacks so no split is necessary. Actually I'm looking to pick up 200-250 lbs. I'm bummed with the increase from CMG because the previous price was great. Very interested what these guys can do.

Seriously though, this is great the group buys are able to keep going!

Just checking to see if you heard back about the DME?
