Right. We bought 100lbs of 2-row from AHS.
When GRABASS was a smaller group, we did a bulk hops buy (I think we used freshhops) and ended up with way more hops that we had any right to own. I ended up throwing quite a bit away because I couldn't use them fast enough.
I am thinking about setting up an email group for everyone so that we can easily ping each other when ordering ANYTHING from ANYWHERE because there are a lot of places that have flat-rate shipping and we can spread that cost out over multiple people.
For example, I am going to soon need some things from bargainfittings.com, which offers $5 flat rate shipping. Dallas indicated that he needs a few items from there, and I know Boston will also be needing a few things.
