So four more sacks? Come on fellas. Daddy needs grain for 50% off.

Hops direct shipping just got cheaper too since they switched to fed ex. Looked like $11 to ship 8 lbs of hops.

Put me down for 3 bags, maybe more if you talk me into it. Might as well.

Unmilled grain can keep for up to a year in the right conditions correct?
3 bags of what?

The amount of grain per bag depends on the grain. In the list I provided all of the grains come in 55 lb bags except the standard 2-row which is a 50 lb bag.

Funds will be sent to me via paypal prior to submitting an order. I will place the order once all the funds have been received. I understand this is not ideal but this is the only way I can protect myself. Honestly, I don't see much benefit to completing the order if we can't get a full pallet. I can get standard 2-row locally for $0.88/lb which is only ~$4.00 more per sack.

So 45 bags for a full pallet huh... We are a long way shy of that.

I agree with needing a full order for a beneficial savings...

Anywho, we need more people to spread the word! The way I look at it is since I do 10 gallon batches, the base malts would get me 2-3 batches per sack. I can burn that before any worry sets in.

1. Rahr USA Standard 2-Row
2. Global Germany Wheat
3. Pauls UK Pale Ale
