Well, we just added another 8 bags of grain to our pantry and are pretty stocked up for now (thanks again Rommel!), but I have an idea for the future: what about a perpetual 'shopping list' for those of us in the area? Whenever one of us is in need of grain, we could add it to the list, and place an order when we reach pallet quantity. This way we wouldn't have to be watching the forum like hawks for someone to take initiative on a bulk buy, worried that we'll miss the opportunity. Yay? Nay?

Big yay, I love this idea. Considering how quickly these pallets filled up there could be orders fairly frequently.
I think there would have to be a pool of people who are able and willing to accept the orders so no one person is overly burdened.

Any other opinions on this?

I would be able to receive a future order. We used the loading dock at my studio in Brooklyn to receive the order BadCoffee organized a little while back. Maybe one way to handle it is that the person who is ordering the most bags can manage the order.

I'm up for it. Although from the sound of it, Josh, you've been brewing way more than I have. I have 4 untouched bags from last time...

I'd be up for this too, but I'm sure the sacks I got this last time will last for quite a while. Hopefully not, but they prolly will.

We order from North Country Malt Supply. Go here:

http://www.countrymaltgroup.com/pricing/index.asp

If prompted to enter a password to see the pricing, it is "greatmalt".
Then download the North Country price book under the heading "Other Pricing". We'd be ordering whole bags (50-55 lb each). The pricing will either be in the 1000# or 2200-4000# column. I think they can fit 40 bags on a pallet. Delivery is around $200, so factor in roughly $5 per bag shipping (depending on total number of bags ordered).

We used to spend at least $30 for a 5-gallon batch. Since we started buying in bulk, we can now make about 15 gallons for the same price. Get your bulk on!
