Default Perlick 525ss group buy reborn!

As of this editing of the post I believe we have demand for about 50 525ss faucets, but no one to supply them cheaply enough.



Update on this group buy attempt: As of now I am about ready to let this idea go, I have gotten no response from most places I tried to contact, through email and phone, and the businesses that have responded positively have given prices that are still higher than I wish to pay and higher than I feel is worth our time. For those finding this post late farmhousebrewing has the cheapest 525ss faucets (about $30) I could find and no one that was discounting for a 50+ group buy could come close to that price.

If anyone else wants to pursue this idea please do, feel free to contact me for any more information or collaboration.

I'd be in for at least two of them... Depending on the actual cost, I might be able to swing three (or four) but 100% sure of two (need them for a portable kegorator setup)...

if the thread I deleted because of improper posting was any indicator there is interest at present in around 45-50 faucets. If everyone that is/was interested could post their numbers again so I have a record i will continue to work toward a cheaper price for us.

I got my perlick from Austin homebrew supply on sale for $23.99 less than a year ago. Why has the price jumped so much?

Depending on when this happens I could be in for 3-4 (if you want to deal with international postage ). Will you also be looking at getting shanks, etc. ordered with the Perlicks?

at the moment my goal is to get just the faucets - if I find a supplier willing to deal I will go from there. If this actually goes down I will look into international shipping.

Solid idea on just going for the faucets... IMO, it would be a headache to try and couple shanks and such with this. Personally, I'll be using two in a portable kegorator tower, so I'll need those shanks. I could use a longer shank for the brew fridge door IF I decide to install one there.

I'm almost on the edge of my seat waiting for the pricing on the group buy... Depending on how much it is, and when it happens, I think 3-4 would be in order for me... Considering how I have an order I'm putting together with two of the 525SS faucets that has them at just under $40 each, saving some cabbage there would allow me to get additional items to help my setup.
