Default TOTALLY NEW Chicago bulk buy

For anyone that missed the group buy that just closed, and you still want/need grain, please post here so that I can gauge the interest in opening up another buy. I know that I need at least 5 bags. Saw a few others that did not get in on the last buy, so I am hopeful.

If this pallet can come together in a *few* days then you will be able to group it with the other buy being coordinated by Niilo and wernerherzog. Also, if there's no pirice difference between 2 and 3 pallets of grain then it may not make sense for the other buy to include this one. I will ask the distributor tomorrow.

They gave me the 2012 catalog, which shows a slight price increase per pound of grain. (eg: $0.55/pound of Canadian 2 row vs. $0.49/pound in the 2011 catalog you have). However, I think that you will have to pay market price, which would be the 2012 prices. Not sure if it would make a difference, unless we went over the poundage threshold for the next lower price.


As a side note, I am looking to split up a bag of C-120 if anyone is interested. It is $0.75/pound in bulk.

Cheers!

OK guys. I am still working on a few friends. We need to have at least 26 bags to get the pallet pricing. If that is all we get, then I will go pick it up and eliminate the shipping. We will see. As we get closer to the 26 bags, I will need everyone to be specific with what they want. Thanks.

Also, I am interested in getting some Cascade hops. If we can get 11 pounds, then they will only be $6.93 per pound. Keep this in mind.

I would be happy to take 4 lbs of the cascades. I am already in on the other group buy for grain, but if you need a couple more sacks to complete the buy I can help out. Keep me posted. My email is bilboa51@yahoo.com
Thanks,
Bill Scott

I'd love to get in on this. I would probably need at least 3, possibly up to 5 sacks. Can someone please send me the catalog?

Catching up on the other group buy thread, I learned that Briess was not available to us. However, on the cover of the new 2012 catalog, there is an announcement that Briess is "Now Available." Are there distribution rules that prevent us from purchasing Briess, or has there been a change in the last month?
