County Malt Group - North East Ohio Group Grain buy
Original Posting Updated as of 8/10/2011 10:02 am EST


I am looking to start a group grain buy for the North East Ohio area, Western PA, and anyone else willing to driving up this way.

I work for a company who has a forklift, we receive semi deliveries all day everyday so it wouldn't be a problem to get it here and unloaded. Because of this, shipping will be cheaper. Basically, no matter what size the order (42 bags or less), you pay a full pallet shipping charge. A pallet is 42 bags so if we buy 30 bags we still pay the shipping rate as if it was a 42 bag order. So it would be great if we can get 42 bags to order to lower the shipping cost per bag.

Below is a list of how many bags we currently have ordered. Details on payment will follow. Details on how to pick up your grains will also Follow. The grains will be delivered to Lowellville, Ohio right off of 422, 2-3 miles from the PA border.

Please check this original posting often as it will be updated as needed.

Bag Count:

pola0502ds: (10) bags
Dave Mathews: (5) bags
KPR121: (1) pilsner, (1) 2-row, hops
shanecb: (1) bag
Super Junior: (2) 2-Row
Logdrum: (2) CM 2-Row, (1) CM Pale, (1/2) Vienna
AKurk: (1) CM-pale, (1/2) Vienna
Sdragon980: (1) bag

Total so far: 26

Bags needed to fill order: 16

1/2 sacks that are still avaiable:
No half sacks at the moment

(If no one calms any of the 1/2 sacks, I will purchase them all within reason)

Home Brewers cannot order any Briess Products - Don't ask, i don't get it either.:mad:

Update: Below is a link for the price list from Country Malt. All prices will have to be checked prior to making the order as I hear they can change fast.

(Since we are going to order 42 bags that puts us at the 2100# mark which allows us to receive even a larger discount. When you look at the pricing you should be looking at what the price is under the 2000# - 4000# pound column):rockin:

I'll keep track of everyone interested. I wonder if big companies like morebeer get discounts on large orders

I'd be interested once you get the details figured out.

I am going to subscribe here. I am having a financial crises at the moment but maybe things will be better by the time you sort it all out. I am in Pitt but head back to Boardman to hang out with friends there on occasion.

Please see original posting, we can now purchase from Country Malt Group. Grain, hops, chemicals, flavorings, etc. Try to list how many bags you want, trying to hit 40. Will post pricing once i receive it.

I will keep updating the original posting with the number of bags we currently have.

Just a quick question (I may be interested), would you prefer that we pick up our bags the day they are delivered, or would it be possible for them to be held somewhere for a few days? I'm in Pittsburgh, and just not sure how often I'd be able to get over to the area.

pola0502ds 08-03-2011 07:42 PM

The grain will be left where I work, i'm not going to load them up in my car and take them home with me. During the week, you would need to pick them up by 5:30 or call and make arrangements. I would be willing to stay late. On the weekend, call and make arrangements.

The other possiblity is that depending on how many people from pittsburgh order, i would be willing to drive them down. I am in pittsburgh very often for work visiting job sites, etc.. If the number of people is not large, if your willing to wait I would drive them down but it would have to be on a day where I am already traveling to the pittsburgh area. I'd say i'm in pittsburgh once a week and sometimes even more.

All times are GMT. The time now is 02:53 PM.
