It's the weekend so I'm sure Country Malt is closed. I still haven't heard anything yet. Since schaez in the Houston buy is waiting on the same step, I have PM'ed and haven't heard anything from him either, so I'm guessing they are waiting too.

I plan to call them again on Thursday as that is the two week point since they said the info was being sent to corporate.

At this point, I think a call every other day is in order. Seems they indicated back on the 10th that the order was a go. Here we are the 27th with no movement. Emails are easy to ignore, the person calling you every other day isn't. Based on interest expressed on the board, we're far from a huge customer but it sounds like we'd be able to put together a pallet every other month or so.

I'd call today, ask WHO you need to talk to in order to push this process along and follow the rabbit trail. A piece of paper is even easier to ignore than an e-mail, and I'd imagine that's exactly what we are to the person in corporate responsible for the next step.

That said, I'm a pushy SOB...and there's a solid reason that I did not volunteer to head up a group buy. Such things are a pain in the ass for the organizer of same.

Yeah, I agree. I'll try calling today. Wish me luck. I'm sure once we get one order under our belts we'll be smooth next time!

Alright guys they will have to remove a bag of grain to get the starsan on the pallet. If anyone wants to drop a sack and receive a refund please let me know in the next couple of hours, otherwise I'm just going to drop the starsan for this order. Sorry guys originally they said it wouldn't be an issue.
