Subscribed, I would like to be in for the next group buy. I have never done whole grain but have been slowly collecting the needed equipment and I think I'm finally there.

I did a rapid review of this thread and it looks like about 18 people "missed it" or have subscribed for the next one. How many does it take to trigger another buy? 18 x 100# is almost 1 pallet...and I'm seriously thinking more along the lines of 200#.

I see you are from Falmouth. You may want to check with FEDCO or MOFGA and see if anyone local to you is doing anything in this realm. They seem to be centered around the Waterville area which is a bit away for me. They are growing organic non-GMO's over that way. I have no idea if anyone is malting.

I typically get 3-5 sacks of base malt (so 165-275#) at a time. Depending on how much I have left, and when the next purchase I can get in on will be. I've also been known to split sacks of grain with people. I am down to maybe 1-1/2 sacks of MO and about the same of UK 2-row. While I should be good for several more batches, I'll be getting in on the next group buy (either here of the HBC I join). I want to try out some TF MO next.

For those who missed out on this one the CT group buy is going. Pickup is in winsdor ct near hartford. It looks like there is room to fill the 2nd pallet. Probably closing soon.
