    I was able to get an account with NCM because I own a beer business.

    Brewcraft is the homebrew arm of CMG they told me to cut it out or loose my account

    Just an FYI the store is in the Boston Metro but not located in Cambridge. I am sure that you
    can figure it out from there.

    Most likely the last one was it. Someone at a LHBS whined to brewcraft about our buy. So I
    don't want to jeopardize my ability to by from CMG. Long story short I think that for now the
    buys are over.

    The grain is in. It looks like we might get a little snow here but I don't think that it really
    is anything to worry about.

    So when I go its normally early in the morning during the week. If that work sure

    The grain is in Boston waiting to be delivered on Thursday. So we should be good for the sort
    on Saturday.The address is 6 Ashland St Everett MA 02149. When you reach the address you will
    need to keep...

    Once I have the grain on hand I will annouce it in the thread with the pick up instructions.
    Since the sort isn't at a private residence I am just going to post it in the
    thread.Cheers,Donovan

    Only looks to be a couple inches so not sure that it will be an issue.

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.
