    You should be pretty much clear sailing until the Boston tolls. Then after the bridge it should
    be clear. We're are you coming from?

    Hey all if anyone has the time to hang around and help wax some bottles you would be making my
    week. Also I am sure that you would end up with a case or 2 of beer at the end of the day.

Hey there I saw you're doing a group buy, and it looks like you own/work@ a local nano. Are you still a homebrewer? I'm asking because in the past I've asked smaller breweries if I could tack on a sack or two of grains. They were ok with it at first then it got sketchy. Not sure what happened. Can anyone get enough people together and do a group buy or do you have to know somebody?

Happy brewing.
Prost!

@tinmann I run the group buy for New England and everyone is welcome to participate. This time we are doing the pick up in Concord, Ma. I have been running this buy for about 3 years now. So I am pretty trusted to do the right thing. I welcome you to jump in on our buy we are just one pallet away from filling the order.

Starting your own buy is tough now. The reason is that you have to know someone with an account at North Country Malt. They are no longer allowing homebrewers to order directly from them. I think that the reason is that they bought Brewer's Best and they are geared towards selling to homebrew shops.

I don't homebrew much any more. Since I own the brewery I can take home 200 gallons a year without paying tax on it. The pilot system that I use could be considered homebrewing. It makes 15.5 gallons at a time and I just use big buckets to ferment those batches.

Here is the link to the New England Buy.
