Edwort,

How many people did you have in the order? I would be interested in getting an order together in the next couple of months. I'm a college student, though, so it'd have to be mostly cash-up-front and I think my roommate would be pissed if I tried to store a pallet of grain in our 2-1. Please let me know what difficulties (if any) you have, but otherwise, man, that beer is gonna be cheaper than milk, soda, OJ, coffee....

Thanks,
Doug

Thanks. I'll keep you in mind. PM me with your email & phone.

Folks are paying up front before the order is placed.

We have about 7 people in the group. So far everyone has stepped up. It's pretty hard if you have folks order 1 sack.

A day late and a dollar short! It would have been worth the 2 hour drive.

I am looking for folks who want some PBW. I'm going to buy a 50# pail of it.

I'll divy it up 5 lb. bags for $12 plus actual UPS ground shipping for interested folks. I have 25 lbs. to move. PM me if you are interested.

2,310 pounds of Malt and 44 pounds of hops came and went today. What a day, but it went smoothly and everyone has their product. I've got a few pounds of grain here to last me a few months. Here's what we ended up paying. We will do this again. My Tahoe smells like breakfast!

$0.42/# 2-Row Pale Ale
$0.41/# Pilsener
$0.46/# Wheat
$0.52/# Vienna
$0.58/# Maris Otter

Yeah, it's not too hard. Just find a few folks willing to buy a couple hundred pounds each and before you know it, you have 42 bags to buy.

You can still buy less, but the freight charges add up quick. It's a flat rate and the more bags you spread it across, the better. To Texas, we had a freight charge of $5.46 per bag. Hops & chemicals rode for free.

I have enough PBW & Starsan to last a lifetime.
