I'm definitely in for 200 lbs.

I bought 100 lbs. in the second Denver buy, and it's long gone. Made some great beer though. My house Pale Ale was one of the best ever.

Wayne or Ryan would either of you be up to coordinate the next buy?

I can set it up and host the delivery again if it looks like we will get enough demand. I believe the first big price break is at 2000 lbs. If we can get above 5000 lbs we may be able to get an even better deal. Last time we had 6250 lbs so it is definitely doable.

I'd be in for a couple hundred pounds

I don't mind coordinating it again. I'm not entirely convinced there's enough interest to open it just yet though, or if we do open it now, maybe the ordering window should be open for a while? They have a 1000 lb minimum, and last time we ended up with over 6000 lbs.

If you disagree, speak up.

I don't believe there will be any price breaks based on the last conversation I had with them. The demand for their products is through the roof. They can't even keep up with production...

I agree. I don't brew quite as much in summer as other times of year, owing to vacations and my house's lack of air conditioning (need to get a second chest freezer!), so I still have a good deal of malt from the previous buy. I would be in for at least 200 pounds in the next go-round, but I probably won't be ready until sometime in the fall. So if we open it up now, I would (selfishly) advocate for a longer ordering window. Just my 2.

I agree. I'm only halfway through the last order.

I have similar thoughts. Although I am almost out of what I picked up in the last round (15 gallons for a 4th of July party and 20 gallons for a wedding sure ate into my stock quickly) I probably still have enough to get me through to October.

On a separate note, how many would be interested in a group hop buy. The best price I have found is by the pound and although there are a couple varieties I can go through a full pound I would like to have more than just a couple varieties.

I would be interested in the future, but I just made a big purchase. As for grain, I'm good for a few months, but might pick up a sack or two to hold supplies through next summer.

I missed out on the last one and can't imagine paying $65 for a sack of CMC pale at the LHBS... I'd be in for 200#... sounds like we might be at 1000# without trying too hard... I'll keep watching the board!!
Cheers!
Mike
