If it is a matter of manpower, I'm sure we could come up with some more volunteers to help with the splits (I absolutely would). I would love more hops. Just an idea, totally understand if its too much of a p.i.t.a.

Ah another ebuild in waiting



As for the hops, we are still sorting it out. A lot of it is keeping a delicate balance of not disturbing the work going on in the warehouse (too many people would do this), and keeping coordinating easy. Nothing is in stone yet.

Just curious, is there any sort of seniority thing in these sorts of group buys. I'm fairly new to this community (and young) and am looking to get about 5 sacks. Just wondering if it's frowned upon to get a big buy for a person that's new.

On a side note, I'd be more than willing to help out with sorting and the such. I'm from Buffalo, so it'd be a hike, but I'm sure I could be out there by 10am on sorting day (not sure how the logistics work for these sorts of things).

Cheers,
Marcus

Marcus, welcome. We believe firmly in the principle of brew big or go home! Actually, we have a minimum buy in to limit the number of people and transactions that need to be accommodated. Stay tuned and jeff will post the details when we open the next round.

As twogunz aptly stated, this is a "bulk" buy after all!

Thank you! I've been going through a sack every two to three weeks, and it's getting pretty costly at $60/sack over here. Subbed and ready!

Welcome to the "club". You'll find that our group buy is great and the people are fantastic
