Default Phoenix Group buy on grain

Im up in the North Valley and would love to initiate a group buy for the Phoenix area. I have looked and haven't seen one in area so I thought this would be fitting. We have trucks deliver to my office often and I could store the grain in a air conditioned room until it was all picked up from the individuals. I have never done this, but i'm not scared to try. How many pounds/ pallets would have to be purchased to make this worth while? And where would be a good distributor to purchase through? Please let me know if your interested. Thanks!

I was hoping there would be more interest in a group buy. Apparently, Phoenix home brewers are content paying full price for grain..... Come on people!

I just moved and my equipment is still in a shipping container.... but I'd be down for a few sacks of base!

I'm not a member of a club, but I know there are a few around. It might be helpful to contact them to gather interest. They probably have email channels to contact a lot more people.

I never come into this subforum, just got lucky today!

Hey thats a great idea. I know there are some local clubs, but I remember looking into it and the closest one to me was an hour drive. Ill do some checking around and see about the interest.

Club members get 10% off at most of the valley homebrew stores, but I don't think they've organized group buys before. Shoot ollllllo on here a PM. He's the Prez of Arizona Society of Homebrewers, the largest homebrew club in the country.

I may be interested if the price is right.

OT I have thought about joining on of the local clubs but they both are on either side of the valley and a PIA to get to. Maybe we need to look into creating a central phoenix home brew club. I have brewed with ollllllo once years ago... great guy, didn't know he was Prez of Arizona Society of Homebrewers.

I'm all for it!!! Hops and Tannins up in Anthem said they would host it. Ive been getting to know Bill up there and he seemed very open minded. Unfortunately with a two year old and one on the way its hard to pull this off at my house. So where do we go from here? I have a lot to bring to the table (equipment, welding etc.) but I'm to busy with work etc. to take over any president type position. My neighbor (also a brewer) said he would handle a web site and all that good stuff. We are close but we need someone that will man up and organize the whole thing. Any ideas?
