Default Group/shared buy in Alberta

Hi guys,
I know there are a few other Albertans here.

I'm buying a few things from the Didsbury warehouse of Canada Malting.

Especially now that I am doing 10 gal batches, I need to start buying more things in bulk. I've been getting my base malt bulk for a while, and there are a few other things that are significantly cheaper in bulk, but which I don't need 55lbs to myself... Anyone want to split? I guess I'm tired of getting poked in the eye ($3/lb... 300% mark up) for grains that I use a lot of...

Anyway, here are a few things I'd like to get:

Rice hulls (50lbs) $30 (60c/lb instead of $4/lb at LHBS. Could be split a lot)
Flaked Corn (50lb) $36 (split a bag in 2-4?)
Cara Amber (55lb) $55 (split a bag into 4 or so?)
Vienna (55lb) $40 or so depending on brand... (would split in half...)
Special aromatic (55lb) $40 (never used it?)

That's mostly what I wanted, in addition to some base 2row. If you had a particular interest in something else, I could also be convinced to split: maris otter, pilsner, light crystal, munich, maybe rye malt...

I don't want to bother splitting this out 10 ways, but let me know if you want a half or quarter bag of any of these? I'm happy to pick it up at Didsburry, and could then drop it off sometime in Calgary. Let me know.

If I wasn't unemployed I'd take you up on this.

You might try posting it on http://www.yeastwranglers.ca/ and see if you can get some of the Calgary area brewers in on it.

Where did you get the current prices for grains? I'm a little tired of paying $3/lb for specialty as well.

Called Canada Malting and they emailed me a list. Minimum buy is in 25kg bags. Interested in splitting any of those? Anything else you want?

Order made... hope a few people will take some off my hands. I'm going to be in trouble with SWMBO otherwise!

Ended up with:

Rice hulls (50lbs)
Flaked Corn (50lb)
Cara Amber (55lb)
Vienna (55lb)
Special aromatic (55lb)
Domestic Pilsen (55lb)
Special Pale Ale (55lb)


A few bits are spoken for, but I would love to split these out. (I'm having difficulty explaining to my lady friend that I really need 400lbs of grain...)
