Thank you for that. When the girl told me 20% fuel surcharge I thought she meant on the order. That would be very pricey wouldn't it? WTH was I thinking? I'm going to email you shortly. Thank you for volunteering to help.

Would anyone be interested in splitting a sack of white wheat?

Have sent out a couple PMs with the pricing document link. Still haven't heard back from anyone regarding orders...

I'll just throw this out there to get the ball rolling, but I'm looking at 2 bags of Canada Malting's base malt (1 2-row, 1 pale).

I don't know if bmason decided on a time frame or not...

The ideal time frame is however long it would take to get a load of 42 pallets. I'm thinking 42 because that is the maximum per pallet and would spread the cost of shipping/fuel surcharges across the most bags allowed per shipment. But I think I may be overly optimistic in ordering that many pallets. I'm open to suggestions.

Yeah, I'm surprised at the lack of interest for a Chicago group buy...

Okey dokey. I sent Ace the link for the spreadsheet that keeps tracks of everyone's requests. Once he approves it, he can email me people's addresses so I can invite them to view it; unless everyone is OK with making it public. We have 10 bags so far. The more bags we order the less the shipping/fuel surcharge per bag. Now's the time to get in if you want to save money on grain or anything else.

EDIT: We're not just limited to grain.

I've got the spreadsheet link and can send it to interested parties.
