We need to get these hop splits filled! I'm also curious about getting grain splits going again on the next swap? Anyone have any ideas to how we could make that work?

We're discussing the possibility of doing some limited organized splits but nothing has been decided yet. I think we would like to do them again but the buys have grown in size so fast that we're trying to make it easier to manage for everyone (delivery point and cider handling payments).

I'm fairly set for splits, but can still offer suggestions. It seems that splits could still be done but limited in a few ways:
1. Limit split to those grains for which it doesn't make any sense for any one person to get a full sack. For example, the crystal malts and carapils. Don't allow splits for what are essentially base grains: 2-row, MO, Vienna, even things like Munich. This will reduce the # of splits.
2 Limit the number of sacks in each buy eligible for splits. For example, "we will only have 6 sacks that can be split per group buy".
3.For most splits, limit the # of splits to a max of 3. I'm personally wishing on some things that I got a 1/4 sack, that I had actually gotten 1/3.
4.As you are doing now, for those fairly local to each other, encourage them to buy a sack and split it among themselves after pickup.

Of course, this is all easy for me to recommend as I'm not the one having to measure and split things up, being so far away (Albany).

Hey copyright, I keep forgetting to tell you I tried your blue moon clone on my last brew day while I was zesting oranges and brewing my first wit. It was tasty and put me in the right frame of mind! I haven't busted out the SN clone comparison yet- I want to get my brother in law over to enjoy that.

Thanks again

Boom, I just kegged 4 batches and hit the boil on two new ones! I'm going to pitch on the cake I used for my wit and make a rye saison with it -- really looking forward to seeing how it turns out. It should be perfect by the lake this summer. I also used a touch of the aromatic malt from one of our previous buys for a Vienna style ale, haven't used it before either so we'll see!

I did have one quick question. Does anyone have an amber malt recommendation? When I was looking through the malts I didn't see one. I'm probably just being blind. I know that amber can go by various names though.

I've been using the Franco-Belges Kiln Amber and like it. I use it in a lot of my beers in a small quantity.
