San Diego Group Buy?
Just wondering if there was anybody in the San Diego area that is thinking about doing a group buy or wants to plan a group buy. Oh and i am referring to Malt.

I'd be down if someone can get it put together.

Well we got two people so far. I read the group buy rules and from what i understand you would have to have some seniority in the forums to be able to put this together. but i can get some of the footwork done.

Well i just called "The Country Malt Group" out of Hayward Ca. and they said they can only sell to breweries and those with a license of some sort. I asked her if that was state law and she said no it is "their policy". I told her they were missing out on alot of business.
I guess ill try again somewhere else.

Damn, I've been waiting for a California-based group buy for ages now, but San Diego might be a bit far for me to wander. Still, I might consider it if you guys find someone willing to sell...

still looking for an outlet, but i think Country Malt Group pretty much has a monopoly out here. And their policy is to not sell to home brewers. Everyday I see another reason why i fricken hate commifornia!

I'm pretty sure all the malt companies don't sell to homebrewer's unless you have bought from them before.

I think I have also heard that NC Malt will only sell to previous customers now :(

I've asked the guys at Home Brew Mart about buying in bulk and the only thing they said I could buy in bulk would be Rahr 2-row.

I dont have a whole lot of free time on my hands right now but I'll see if I can do a little digging into a group buy. If I find anything I'll pass it on :mug:

Country Malt Group sucks man, I don't know why they won't help out home brewers. Especially when we are willing to go out of our way to organize a group buy and make it very easy on them. :mad:

They wouldn't even let me drive out to Hayward and pick up some of their malt. Can we just lie to them and tell them we are a licensed brewery? I bet they don't even check.

I PM'd somebody in this thread to say that I might be able to help. The guys in Tennessee have an account and I could probably order it under our account and have it delivered to you guys.
