Just a heads up guys - I know we are only about halfway to closing the deal but wanted to let people know I just posted some new info to post 1 and 2.

Do to the overall PITA of collecting cash from different sources this time around I plan on collecting from a money order/ certified check or personal check only.

There are a couple reasons for doing this, one is simplicity.
1. It was hard to track last time when i was bouncing between 3-4 forms of payment.
2. I don't like the fact that amazon and other sites have started asking for SSN's and don't need the implication that I am making money via an internet business.

Thanks for being patient with all the changes, it sure has gotten complicated on the buy lately

Feel free to PM me with any concerns.

I know this has been asked before but is there still anything going on with the keg interest?

+1


Also just got some new info about the conical, MT, BK, HLT buy I mentioned a while ago. Here is a link to the pricing, I am working on getting more details for pick up, etc.

These appear to be very similar, if not the same manufacturer for stoutkettls and tanks. crazyirishman34 is heading up the buy. Can't be coordinated on HBT, since it is an equipment buy. Feel free to ping him with questions.

Enough participation in the cuse could allow us to have our share shipped to Syracuse.

I'm in Korea on business and I always make it a point to try local beers or other beer like beverages. So, I just had some makgeolli (thick rice beer)-- pretty funky stuff but not bad and would be something I'd drink again under the right circumstances. Anyways, just thought I'd share since I've got nothing other than work to do in my hotel room right now

Spreadsheet: Added 1 sack BZ-MUNH (Munich), used some today and I am running low. Also removed 1 CM-PILS and added 1 CM-2ROW.

Spreadsheet now at 63 sacks.

Anyone want 1/2 sack of BZ-CHIT (or I will go for Carapils in place of the BZ-CHIT if desired)?

Anyone else want to sign up for a 1/2 split that hasn't already? Want to make sure everyone has a chance before opening it up to 2 splits per person in a week or so.

I would say personally I am good for now with splits and would let someone take over mine if they are looking to get in on more.

Copyright - normally I would be all over the carapilz, but I have about 30lbs in stock! but I use it a lot. I have been tearing through munich lately too. Also am finding myself using a lot of pils just because of hefes, roggens, belgians that I ahve on my radar.

added a bag of bz-pils

if people aren't jumping in on splits I would be interested in going in on 1/2 bag of c40 as I just noticed I seem to be using that up - PM me if anyone is interested.


I also added some hops, looks like we are getting close to closing several of these:

HU-90CLM Columbus 7
HU-90MTH Mt Hood 9
HU-90FGL Fuggle 5
HU-90TNG Tettnang 6
HU-90NBR Northern Brewer 6
HU-90GPR Perle 7
HU-90SMT Summit 7


I noticed that we have a warrior and magnum hop interest going. If we don't end up closing either, it will probably make sense to combine interest on these hops to get one or the other. If I remember right they are pretty much the same thing (right now that would be 6 shares of interest for mag and warrior).

HOPS:

OK all who are participating in the hop buy please read on.

So I am a knucklehead and I either:
a. have a poor memory
b. didn't listen closely
c. a little bit from choice a and b

I just called NCM to confirm hop buy capability and packaging. It looks like while they can package in 1lb bags, it will cost the same price as if we bought them 1 at a time. The only way to get the deep discounted price is to order them in one giant 11lb sealed back. i.e. we will have to split them up in bags.

Based on this information some people may wish to not participate, however I am still whole heartedly interested, and will handle the splits personally as needed.

If you wish to step out of the hop splits please let me know and we can update the sheet accordingly.

If you continue with the hop portion of the buy it will likely mean adding maybe $1 or less to your hop total (dependent on packaging). i.e. if you bought 1 lb of cascade it will then will be $7.39 for a lb vs. $6.39

I have a food saver vacuum sealer and if I recall the foodsaver bags are about ~<$1 per foot on the roll unless they have come down in price (each split would be charged actual price). Anyway that would be the most $ way for us to package them. We could go with ziplocks as well. I have mylar bags as well, but I can't vac seal them - only heat seal them.

I have used hops that were over 1 year old that were stored in a mason jar, opened several times with free air as I used them. They still made great beer. Personally I am switching all over the mason jars for all my hop storage after that experiment. For reference, a 1 qt mason jar holds about 1 lb of hops.

Please let me know if you are changing interest. Sorry for not flushing the details out on the hop packaging before this. I still think it is a great deal and hope people remain on the bulk buy. But if you change you mind that is ok too (PMs sent to all).

Thanks all!
