New England Group Grain Buy

Seeing as we filled the first pallet in 2 days I would say there is enough interest in making this group buy official.

This buy is open to everyone and the pickup location will be in Bedford, NH. Just outside Manchester and close to Rt 93, 293 & Rt 3. About 15 minutes from the MA border.

The sign up spread sheet is located here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...RdndTMXc#gid=0

1. Need 84 sacks to order. Additional pallets can be added if there is demand for them in increments of 42 Sacks.
2. People will have to come and pick up their bags at the drop off location on a specific date and time after the order has been received (near Manchester, NH). This will most likely be a Saturday morning (10am-12pm) following arrival of shipment. Volunteers would be appreciated to help sort and split grains about an hour prior to pickup depending on the size of the order. All orders will be sorted prior to any being released.
3. Payment details will be addressed by Godrick soon. The pricing on the spreadsheet is an approximation but will be close to actual.

We buy directly through NCM - this means that we will get true wholesale bulk pricing!
~$30 2Row + shipping (~$4-6)
~$40 Marris Otter + shipping (~$4-6)

To see the catalog, go to:http://www.countrymaltgroup.com/download.asp?f=f6
The password is "greatmalt".

Pricing (Use 4000#+ pricing)
Pricing on the spread sheet is an estimate. Plan for about $4-6 per bag for shipping cost and (no tax) on your portion of the order. The prices should be pretty darn close but may vary slightly.

The pricing on this sheet has carried over from the last group buy and some may not be accurate. It would also be helpful if someone would verify the price per Lb and sack weight is accurate. Please let me know about any corrections needed and i will take care of it.

Cleaning Chemicals carry an additional HAZMAT surcharge and this cost will be spread out over all the chemical purchases. The first order entered on the sheet will see this entire charge added but as more chemical purchases are added it will automatically be adjusted.

My mailbox here can fill up quickly and is often full. I can be reached at my username here @ gmail.com.

This will probably be the only group buy at this location until after the new year. The company that is receiving the order for us gets very busy during the fall. If everything goes well with this order we can plan on 3 or 4 per year at this location.

Any and all helpful suggestions welcome to make this as easy as possible for everyone involved.

I'm definitely in. I might be adding some more bags for some local buddies too. I'll most likely be able to pitch in with sorting/weighing/loading etc.

I will post information on how to pay for your order shortly.
Still looking for someone willing to bring our malt (14 bags) closer to Western MA if possible.

I can help sort, depending on what day the order comes in.

godrick 08-14-2012 01:08 AM

Everyone should have received the information on how to make payment by now. If not, contact me by PM.

We filled the first two pallets. Unless the majority of folks want to extend this to a third pallet I will clean up the spreadsheet later today. I will double check the pricing and clear out the unfilled splits. If you havent already added your HBT user name to the spreadsheet please update it soon.

I have cleared out the open splits on the sreadsheet. Your totals should now be accurate. Only thing we are not sure of at this point is if the HAZMAT charge applies to this order where there is no StarSan (liquid) only PBW (dry).
I made a copy of the spreadsheet before clearing out the splits. So, in the event we need to reopen this order I will put the partial quantities back in so they can fill up.

Update: HAZMAT only applies to star san. So this order will not carry a HAZMAT fee. Totals are correct but shipping will be adjusted once we receive the total amount from NCM.

When is the next one as I missed this one.

fspinale 08-17-2012 01:05 PM

If all goes well with this one I would like to do another at this location in late fall/early winter .

goybar 08-17-2012 07:23 PM

Any idea when it will come in?

Curious which Saturday I need to clear with SWMBO :D
