Ok, the supplier that the group buyers back east use won't sell to anyone but an actual brewer, or an LHBS. So, we have to get a brewer to do the buy for us. I'm guessing the LHBS's won't want to do this, since it's basically cutting into their sales.
I think the options here are Enegren, and maybe The Lab. I can ask at either one, but does anyone know either of them well enough to ask this as a favor?

No, I've met the owner/brewer of the lab. Cool guy, but I do not know him well enough to ask for this favor.

I'm curious also... I'd like to get in on a local group buy as well.

I finally talked to the guys at Enegren a month or so back and they said it wouldn't be possible for them to order for us. However, I am going to be making a trip out to more beer in riverside in the near future and they have decent prices on whole sacks. See the prices here. http://morebeer.com/search/102161///...ulk_Pricing%21
I would be willing to pick up some bags for anyone in the Thousand Oaks area if you wanted to help cover some of the gas costs. email me at chemman14 at gmail dot com if you are interested.

I dropped this for two reasons: first I didn't see anyone willing to sell to a non-retail store or commercial brewer, and I couldn't find a brewer who could do it. Obviously a retail store wouldn't want to either, since that directly cannibalizes his business.

Second, the LHBS that's home to the Maltose Falcons has a special price on all grains at $1.40/lb and 2-row for $1/lb if you join their grain club. Not as cheap as buying wholesale, but it's closer, and you don't actually have to buy a full sack, or pay for shipping. I'm still down if someone can figure out how to get a group buy, though.

Yeah I do the grain club currently but I like the additional savings of buying in bulk
Editl: Plus it gives me an excuse to go to the Stone company store in Pasadena and fill my growlers.
