I figure we have two options. Either close the order and start the funding process, or keep the order open for the next few weeks and then roll open items to Group Buy #5, or close it now.

I'm leaning towards leaving it open, given folks (including myself) are about to disappear for 1-2 weeks. However i'm open to either approach. Since I have a record of the current pallet, those of you who were on before we hit 42 are set either way.
I am fine either way. Thanks.

@brewguyver - let's do whatever is easier for you. If you are going to be tied up for the next couple weeks, let's wait until then to close it.

So how did the distribution for round 3 go? Were you guys able to sample and trade a few beers? Give us the highlights.

I'm up for leaving this open things are going to get pretty busy with the holidays. Plus this will give more time to maybe fill another pallet and complete the rest of the splits.

There was a little bit of a shipping snafu (something about trying to get a full sized 18 wheeler into a perpendicular loading dock in South Side. I bribed the SWMBO to let us leave a day later for Christmas, so we rescheduled for this Saturday now that the grain is on-site. We should still be able to do some beer sampling (fingers crossed).

This is what I was thinking as well, and it makes coordination easier with the holiday behind us. Worst case I'll drop my 2 full sacks and close out two splits instead.

BTW - anyone have suggestions for what dust mask to use when portioning out PBW? I was thinking about using my respirator with lead/asbestos/small particulate rating, but I'm open to suggestions. Will also be using closed goggles and elbow length oil change gloves. Might be overkill, but better safe than sorry.

Group buy 3 went swimmingly. Looking forward to getting back to this one after the holiday and maybe filling another pallet.

In case any of you want some hops to go with your grains:

BTW, we're up to 45 sacks as of now.

Looks like this is stalling a bit...I'm cool to take one of my sacks off if you guys wanna close it sooner.

No need - I have the 1st pallet saved. If we don't have any significant movement towards pallet 2 by early next week (e.g. up to 70 sacks by Tuesday) I'm going to close out. We'll move the splits to group by 5.

If you're interested in the hop buy, make sure to add your contribution to the order. We would like to align them for pickup at the same time.
