    Redman67 had a line on some cheap 16gallon barrels I think that he was getting them for $5 to
    $10. He found them on ebay.

    The airport is in Warwick RI not Providence. So that kind of throws a wrench into the gears a
    bit. If your friend doesn't mind driving into providence I would check out Trinity Brewhouse.

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.
