    Maybe that is what he mentioned but not really how it read to me. But sometimes we need to take
    posts with a grain of salt.

    Read through this thread but can someone clarify where the pickup is? I'm in SW CT. Thanks.
    Haven't ordered in a while, and shipping costs seem crazy...The pick up is in Everett, MA just
    north of Bost...

    Looking to close out the current grain buy. Need 27 more bags to fill it. If you want some
    cheap grain check it out

    Hey all looks like we are getting close to wrapping up the buy just 24 bags to go. If you have
    any fellow brewers that want grain let them know about the buy.

    Cool. Sounds like a couple options available. I'll probably plan on reaching out to someone if

    The motor only runs some of the time. With a big Mac it will only come on once in a while

    Everything you are describing is normal. Normally after the carbinator you chill the soda water
    right after with an plate chiller or ice bank. If you have room temperature soda the
    carbonation will im...

    That is the 2014 catalog. I will get a new one soon so most likely the pricing will be
    different.

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.
