Default MD Bulk grain buy!

http://www.northcountrymalt.com/file...007Catalog.pdf

There is the catalogue.

A palate shipped to the DC area of MD is 136$ (40 bags) so shipping is reasonable, as long as you get a ton (you could do a palate of 30... but it is stil 136$)

by bag the shipping was a like 20$ so F that.

now here is the catch.... we need a loading dock.... anyone got one handy?

Do they actually require a loading dock or do they offer to charge more for a liftgate? Or could we just be men about it and unload it by hand without the liftgate or loading dock if they would let us.

And I think I remember hearing sometime that they have a different price list for wholesale prices that isnt on the internet. I could be wrong but I just vaguley remember seeing that somewhere.

What kind of malt are you planning on buying? I may need to replenish some stock sooner than later. MDHB is still a driveable distance for me.

If this comes together, I'd be in for a sack or two of MO and a sack of Pilsen.

Data, I asked and they said if you wanted a palate (only way it makes sense) you needed a business place ot have it delivered too... I ske3d just a loading dock? and she said, a business with a loading dock.. so whatever that means. I was thinking a bunch of dudes could unload it pretty quick! you are free to call and ask them questions!

I had to get a truck with liftgate as I didn't have a dock and I bought more grain than anyone else, I couldn't transport it all in one trip. That added to the cost of freight, if you have access to a dock it will save quite a bit. Its really worth it, we'll be doing it again once the group starts running out of grain. Not to mention, how cool it is to have a huge a$$ pallet of grain in your garage. I ordered from North Country Malt in NY, I think they have a distro in the midwest somewhere as well. Ignore the homebrewer pricing, call and talk to them about ordering a pallet to get the bulk pricing. They sell hops too, but in 44lb blocks for about $900 each. =P They also have additives and cleansers, etc, we got some star san.
