That location is fine for me. I'd be in for a sack of 2 row and sack of marris otter. Possibly two of each depending on cost.

Depending on timing, I might be interested. I get pretty good priced from my LHBS (Perfect Brewing), so I am not desperate, but I could definitely split a few sacks of UK and Belgian/German crystal and a few UK, US, or German base malts. I go through quite a bit but I just stocked up for the immediate brew queue.

OK. I had a chance to call The Country Malt Group today. I was informed that there is a 10 bag minimum (55 Lbs/each) to order; with a 42 bag per pallet maximum. We can mix and match sacks of grain as well. If we have it delivered o my place in the city there would be a pallet charge of $65 plus 20% of the total order for fuel surcharge. Depending on the amount we can get together, I'd be willing to pick it up free of charge. Send me an email if you're interested in getting in on this group purchase so I can send you a link with their pricing. Then let me know what you would be ordering. For payment, I'm thinking paypal to my account, then credit card payment from me to Country Malt (I'll share the payment verification info so that everyone knows what's going on). I believe paypal charges a certain percentage fee (3% ?) for transactions. Can someone confirm this? Anyway, when the time comes to actually get a quote we can figure out the total charges with taxes and paypal fees included. I'll post a spreadsheet or something. Sorry for the rambling post.

Bill

Given my location, let me know who would still be interested in a group buy. I'll report back a soon as I get pricing info.

You might want to remove your e-mail address! That is if you would like to avoid a bunch of spam mail. I might suggest that ACE handle the PM's, if he is willing to. He gets like 25,000 PM's.

Ace, if you don't mind handling the PMs that would be great. You can email me what people want and I'll update it on a google docs spreadsheet. Include the malt company and/or item id in your desired purchase. Also, we're not just limited to grain. We can combine grain with extracts, hops, yeast, etc.

Also, everyone please include your name, HBT user name and the email address associated with your paypal account. The spreadsheet will only display HBT user name for everyone's personal info. Thanks

Also, I don't think I was clear. For now just send me your desired purchase. Once we can get enough for a pallet of 42 sacks, I will submit a RFQ which will have all of the pallet and fuel surcharges so people can submit the proper payment amount.
