Jeff actually had a rock jam in his malt mill (I have yet to use the amber but saw the sticks during the split, it was a lot).

To me the fact that bierhaus has seen this too, makes me believe the quality control isn't what it should be. That I personally will skip TF for some of these malts. My buddy just bought the 3 roller malt mill for about $400 and I don't need to ding it ahead of schedule.

I bought 18 lbs TF Amber during the round 5 buy. Have used about 8 lbs or so and did not notice any foreign objects yet reading this definitely got my attention. Still have an unopened sack of TF Marris Otter. Sure do not want to ding up my mill. Has anyone else noticed sticks and pebbles in TF Malts?

Just closed out EKG and added 1 NB. Any chance of more cascade?

All group buy participants have been emailed an optional survey about this group buy. Just trying to gain some information on some ideas we are thinking about.

Current thoughts:
- We want to have 1 date that we have people come pick up their grain. This would be a defined Saturday from 10am - noon. We would be able to give everyone a 1-2 week heads up on this day, maybe more. But this date will slide with when ever we 1) get all deposits from everyone (which we hope we can get within 1 week from closing the order),2) actually place the order. We "might" be able to handle special cases if someone cant make it, but we would strongly suggest making arrangements with another buyer if you can. We just want to get the grain out of our delivery location fast, with minor impact to their operations.
- Add limited splits back in for this buy. 1/2 splits mainly with a limited number of splits. Possible 1/3 splits for certain grain types and limited in number. We would also add cost of stronger bags to split participants.

just filled out the survey. I havent been on the board in a while so I felt compelled to add another bag and a few lbs of hops. Mainly stocked up on Columbus and mt hood since i just tapped another keg of Denny's Wry smile IPA (second batch of it ive made) and the stuff is ridiculously good
