I think everyone agreed to meet in Raleigh for distribution. That's where I'm delivering it if we get enough interest for a pallet anyway

That would be great, as I can get to Mooresville any day of the week, but I have no reason to go to Raleigh.

Are we sure that a palette is allowed to be a mix-n-match of different brands?

Good call foltster, pimp it big! It is Dallas' place after all!

And I'm pretty sure brand doesn't matter Walker. It's all from the same place.

(Gratuitous use of dancing bananas SWMBO's idea)

I'm almost positive you can do that but has anyone called to verify or talked to someone with prior, first-hand experience? There have been several group buys on HBT but I've not tracked any of them other than small scale ones.

I was a part of the Philly / so NJ group buy (round 2). reading through your thread I can answer your questions about ordering bulk grain.

1) mix and match bags...it doesn't matter. no. county malt just started offering hops by the pound as well, so I know that some of the guys in round 3 are buying hops as well.

2) you can order bags pre-crushed (that's what I did as I don't yet own a mill). it was an additional $2.20 / bag. these were somewhat easy to locate on the pallet as they had stitched the crushed bags back together with bright yellow thread.

3) I think you need an offload site with a loading dock. the pallet will come on a semi, and they will just pallet-jack it off the truck. I *think* you can pay extra and they will deliver on a truck with a lift gate, or will allow you to hand-offload (driver has to wait around while you do this, so they charge more). One of the NJ guys in our buy works for a trucking company, so delivery was a snap...it was delivered to one of their truck depots during the day...we came there that night and they fork-lifted the pallet into the parking lot where we divided up the goods.

Lordura organized the 3 Philly/ so NJ grain buys...you can PM him for more info. BTW, check out the round 3 Philly grain buy going on right now...Lordura's technique of updating the first post with everyone's order and who has confirmed/paid was REALLY helpful!

Good luck! and Happy Brewing!!!
