I'd say give it another week or so. Even if we don't have 42, I'd be willing to go ahead and pay the little extra in shipping and the few cents more per pound. That's my opinion, at least.

I agree with Barc. If my logic is correct we will still pay the same amount per pound but will pay more per bag for the grain. I say this because I called North Country and was quoted the same price for a single bag as the price sheet show. However, the freight for 2 bags to the Raleigh area was $50 via Fed Ex. If we have 22 bags and the freight on a pallet is $180 that amounts to ~$8.20 per bag in freight instead of $4.05 for a full pallet. It still is a great savings.

I'm in for whatever you want to do. I do have a local source for 55 [email protected], so if I can beat that by a little bit to cover my labor and mileage, I'm good.

I'd be in for 1 bag of GB-PALE.

I'll PM Reelale.

If someone wants to split some bags of crystal, we could do that too. I could definitely use some 60, 20, and 10 but I can't use 50 lbs. of each. Maybe split the bags 3 ways. Same goes for vienna, carapils, etc. Just an idea...

I could go in for a partial sack of Vienna and Carapils, maybe a third or fourth of a sack... I was debating asking the same thing.

3 of us are splitting a bag of Great Western 15L, we wanted 10L but doesn't seem to be available. Thomas Fawcett has a "Crystal Malt II" which is 62L - 68L and a Pale Crystal in the 20s, Franco-Belges has a caramel pilsen 8-12L and a couple others have Munich's in the 10 range.

I'd be up for splitting a bag of 60L or anything else with folks and if need be could go ahead and get another bag of 2-row.

Anyone want to split a bag of rice hulls? 38 cents/pound vs $2/lb locally. Kinda silly to have 50 pounds of rice hulls but its not like they'll go bad :-D

Posted this on the AHA Forum site as well. Perhaps we can get enough interest to reach our 42 bag order.

I'm definately in for 2 bags. I dont know of what yet though, as I have only brewed 1 AG batch to date. I printed the whole 34 page PDF so I can read it and decide on the throne. That is where great decisions are made.
