Default SYRACUSE NY - ROUND 4 Group Grain Buy

ORDER OPEN

OK here is the deal:

1. Need 42 sacks to order.
2. People would have to come and pick up their bags at the drop off location (near Syracuse, NY).
3. Payment will be done through paypal, and will be required up front, once the order is secured.

We buy directly through NCM - this means that we will get true wholesale bulk pricing!
~$25 2Row + shipping (~$6)
~$38 Marris Otter + shipping (~$6)

To see the catalog, go to:http://www.countrymaltgroup.com/download.asp?f=f6
The password is "greatmalt".

Use 2000#+ pricing

UPDATE:

Just to keep people up to speed:

Pricing
For pricing, this is an estimate. Plan for about $4-$6 per bag for shipping cost and (no tax) on your portion of the order. The prices should be pretty darn close but may vary slightly.

I will keep track and let you know roughly what you are in for $$wise.

Payment

Payments will be collected once we have secured 42 bags (or we decide to process an order with less). I would like to do all payments through paypal, if you have an issue with this please PM me.

To pay, please follow these instructions carefully to avoid paypal fees.
• Log into paypal.
• Click the "Send Money" tab at the top.
• Put in the buyer's email address (check your PM inbox to get that address - I will send it out as soon as we have reached 42 bags or an order is confirmed).
• Put in the amount to send.

Here's the important part...• Under the amount box, click the "Personal" tab.
• Select "Gift".
• If you are paying from an existing paypal balance, or from your bank account, no fees will be charged. BUT... Paypal charges transaction fees for anything that is paid for with a CREDIT CARD. If you are paying with a credit card, you will have the option of selecting who has to cough up the money for those fees. Do not push those fees onto the buyer. Suck those fees up yourself.
• In the area at the bottom where it allows you to type in the custom text for the email that buyer will receive, be sure to include your name, as it appears on the spreadsheet (your homebrewtalk user name), so that buyer can track who has paid and who hasn't.
• Then send the money and chill out.
When the buyer has all of the money, he'll place the order.

After that, CidahMastah takes over and handles out the delivery end of things, which will be at his home address unless otherwise noted (if you know a place of business that we could have the shipment delivered to that has a loading dock PM CidahMastah). CidahMastah will keep us all updated on when it is to arrive, when you should show up to get it, and all that jazz. You, as the buyer, are responsible for picking up your grain or for making arrangements for someone else to pick up and hold your grain for you.

FOR SPLIT SACKS: Work out the details with your partners. Bring something to put your share in, weigh it out on site, and take your portion. Or, one of you picks up the whole sack and deal with the splitting on your own time. Whatever. That's your decision to make with your splitting partners.

For reference: a 5 gallon bucket, depending on the type of grain, will just about hold half of a 55 lb sack.

Thanks!

A couple notes:

*No briess products or hops
*Generally items that weigh 50 or 55lbs are on the table for buying - but check with me if you have an interest in something.
*Post your interest in splits and tell me how much you want. i.e. TF-CHOC for 1/3 split; TF-CHOC for 1/4 split. I will post your interest on post#2 and add people to the splits until they are completed.
*Post 1. the product code you want and 2. the quantity (CM-2ROW x 1); not 2ROW x1 (if you don't give the code I don't know the brand you want).
*If you are buying out of area - feel free to post your desired shared pickup. i.e. "need to split driving costs from Albany, anyone interested?" I will try to facilitate hooking you guys up, but ultimately this is your responsibility to pick up your grain.
*You can add to your order as often as you like, as many times as you like (please try not to deduct from your order)

i.e. watch post #2 for splits and updates on our buy qty.

Thanks!

I am new to this group buy idea so please excuse my questions. I am correct in assuming no Briess products means none of the dme, etc items or does that include the sacks of 2row etc?

Thanks for spending the time to arrange all of this.

No problem - questions are totally fine.

For some reason briess has decided to exclude home brewers from the bulk buys at NCM - not sure why. So no DME, or any of briess grains. Since they have boycotted us, I try to boycott them when I visit the LHBS. Sorry about the DME, unfortunatley it isn't available.

As a side note, many people here grabbed grain at the discount price without even having done all grain before, but took a chance. I think everyone who did has been back to buy more, or commented on how easy All grain really is.

The guys on this thread are very good people, and if you have questions, or want recc's for set ups, brewing software and hardware / equipment from cheap to fancy - we will help.

I'll start out with CM-2ROW X 2, probably jump in on some splits later.

the only briess product i buy is the smoked cherry malt, they are the only ones who supply that... but briess is over priced anyways.

i might be in for half bag of vienna or full bag, not sure yet and of what kind.

got a double brew day happening here today...

All hail double brew day! (I might shoot for a double on the 4th)



Did grain inventory last night. Verdict is... I still have a lot of grain!

Just remember to limit your "refreshments" until you get your first boil rolling and your second mash started. Otherwise you might have terrible brew session. Good idea to put the simple hop schedule first, especially with the DFH constant hopping madness

Edit:

when you dial in a double brew day - I think you will work them in whenever you can. Something awesome about 1-2 more hours of work, and twice the yield (especially if your SWMBO gives you resistance about brew days . I usually precrush my grain, measure hops out in canning jars, etc. the night before. That way you aren't on your feet all day - it makes it seems like alot less work.
