Howdy,

I'm putting together a bulk grain buy in South Central Texas (Austin/San Antonio Area). I'm not making any money on the deal, but you have to come to my place to pick up your grain.

We talking prices like this.

2-Row Pale for $24.16 or $0.44/lb.
Maris Otter for $32.96 or $0.60/lb
German Pilsen for $29.11 or $0.53/lb.
German Munich for $29.66 or $0.54/lb.
German Wheat for $28.56 or $0.52/lb.

I've got prices for more. The main point is you must order in 55 lb. bags. You'll also have the option of adding 1 lb. bags of hops for $8.00 to $9.50 depending on the variety.

If you are interested, PM me and we'll move it to email.

We need to put together a 42 bag pallet order for these prices. These prices are delivered and picked up in Austin.

We'll just have to get one of these co-op deals going on in our lovely Commonwealth.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

It's pretty simple. Head on out to North Country Malt's web site. Check out their prices at this link. North Country Malt

You will need to click on a particular Malt manufacturer. Look at the prices.

Here's their flat pallet shipping rate. Shipping Rates

You'll need to add a 17.5% Fuel Surcharge to the shipping rate for your state.

The best deal is when you order 42 bags.

My group buy is down to 6 more 55# bags to make our 42 bag pallet.

Hurry and PM me if you want in on this great savings.

If this goes fairly smoothly, I'll do it again. In any event I'd be glad to provide advice to anyone else who wants to do it in their area.

Whoo Hooo, we reached the 42 bags for our bulk buy. The buy is closed. Thanks to those who participated. Emails to follow.

My Haus Pale Ale just went from $16.42 for 5 gallons to $8.10 (that's just over 15 cents per 12 oz. bottle) including malt, hops, & yeast.

Sweet!

Post on here if you decide to do this again. I will be interested after I get my grain mill (hopefully) this summer.

Shoot, I missed this one. I just went and bought 2 55lb. Weyermann Pilsner and red wheat over the weekend at AHS and I need a few more bags of additional malts. Hey Magno, if you want to get another group of people in the Austin area to give this another go I'm in for at least 2 bags and possibly 3. What do you think? Hey, I hope your Poor Richards Ale turned out well.

Any additional takers on another pallet of malt in the Austin area? I might be interested in being the point contact to set another order up.
