Default Northern Colorado - Interest check for group grain buy

Hello fellow northern front range brewers!

Colorado Malting Company is doing some pretty cool stuff. In addition their selection of Colorado grown and malted grains, they also have a wide variety of malted, gluten-free grains.

Who in the Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor (maybe Greeley) areas would be interested in a grain group buy?

The order (depending on interest) would likely be base malt:

Colorado 2-row, Pilsner, and Base pale are all $1.05/lb (which includes shipping of the pallet).

A pallet is 40-50lbs bags.

This is a good price for all local ingredients, and it keeps the $$ right here in our state.

If there is enough interest (in one variety, for now), I will make a spreadsheet on GoogleDocs to keep track of everyone.

Please post your interest and the quantity you might consider. Mods, sorry if this is premature, I wanted to check the interest before I bothered CMC any more about setting up the details.

I'm in Windsor and would be interested in 2-4 bags of 2-row or Pale Malt.

Guess there aren't many of us Front Rangers here interested in grain! Have others found it cheaper locally? Best price I've seen around Windsor and Fort Collins has been north of $1 per pound for 2 row...

No kidding. I thought I was just being impatient. I know there are loads of brewers here...maybe they are just not as interested. I guess ill just bump every 3 days until more people can see it.

Maybe everyone has been shoveling snow.

You may consider seeing if any of the smaller breweries up there use CMC malt. Last time they were making a run to a small Denver brewery, they sent an email to someone on homebrewtalk to add bags to the order. We didn't have to get a full pallet of 1 type.

I don't know who they emailed or whether they would do it for you but its probably worth a shot to contact them.

I'm interested. If we're limited to just one variety, put me down for 2 bags of whatever it ends up being. If it turns out that we can mix and match, I'd be interested in at least one of each, maybe 2 of each.

We are still sitting at about the same interest level, at about 25% of bags claimed.

A new shipping quote from CMC has reduced the price!!

The total, including shipping of the pallet, is now $0.99/lb.

Can you believe it, only $49.50 for a 50lb sack of Colorado grown and malted grain!?!?!?!?!

C'mon people, lets do this. Those that have responded, if you have brewing friends, start the peer pressure already!
