I had a brief pang of guilt, but it didn't last long. I have no problem buying locally, even if the price is a little higher. But when there's a significant savings, then sorry, I'll buy elsewhere. I had already researched buying bulk from B3 when I was visiting family near their bay area location, so Jay putting this together just made things easier on me.

Ditto on that. We were contemplating driving down to B3 to pick up grain, and even with the cost of gas it was considerably cheaper. When it's close, I'll buy local...if not then I feel like I'm getting gouged, whether that is the case or not.

Who did you all buy from?
That was the third annual Austin Bulk Grain Co-op buy. The first was 1 pallet, the 2nd was 2 pallets and this third one was 4 full pallets of malt.



Each year we have doubled our order from North Country Malt. Next year we will max out at 5 pallets as that is the limit for this truck.

Well for our buy it was about 1/2 price, or there a bouts. Maybe a little better. Some malt is cheaper than others. But all in all. I had fun putting it together. I got about 900# of grain out of the deal. And I helped a few fellow home brewers get some grain, that they can stock pile in their closets and piss off their SWMBO....Yes THB I am talking about you! LOL

LOL, yeah...the walk-in closet full of 14 buckets of malt isn't so popular . But hey, she keeps drinking my beer so I'm good!

d@mn Ed, that's a lot of grain. We can only hope to be as awesome as you one day

in other news, i'm definitely getting my value out of the buckets. you can find all sorts of uses for them. My friend borrowed and didn't return the folding tables that usually support our ping pong table top, so i had to improvise.
