Why not coordinate with the local homebrew clubs? That would probably get you to a full pallet in a hurry.

I just bought a sack of two row from home brew headquarters since I was Dallas today.

Anyone friendly enough to try emailing the three new breweries opening in Dallas?

I always heard some small breweries would sell sacks to home brewers at cost, but had no luck from Franconia and Rahr. Franconia never replied and Rahr replied they used every sack they could get.

Anyone wanna try?

Deep Ellum Brewery, Lakewood Brewery,
Peticolas Brewery.

I hope to resurrect this bulk buy this year at Brew Riot by manually talking to brewers about a bulk order. That way it is in person and I can get email addresses/phone numbers.

40-45 sack pallet should be obtainable this way.

I plan for at least 5 sacks for myself. I brew 10 gallon all-grain and get about 3 batches per sack. Since unmilled grain easily lasts a year if kept cool, a bulk buy can give me more money to spend on hardware at my LHBS...

Anyone serious enough or planning to go to Brew Riot feel free to post. I am awaiting current pricing info and list.

Well, despite it looking like the OP lost interest, I too would be in for 1 each of 2 row and maris otter. I live in Oklahoma, but pass through Dallas often.

Brewhaus in Keller sells 50lb bags just under $50 but I bet for a large order they may be willing to drop the prices. Probably not as good as the prices the OP posted but it might be worth giving them a ring.

I only somewhat lost interest. We couldn't get close to completing the order because the interest was not there. For 1/2 pallet it would be no savings over what I could get at HBHQ.

Alright time for an update.

Looks like country malt supply has better pricing and selection-

Here is the price list (thanks to the Houston Group thread)-

http://www.countrymaltgroup.com/down...d%20012112.pdf

I have started a list -

1. Tealio - 5 sacks
2. rack04 - 2 sacks
3. jhw_murphy - 3 or 4 sacks
4. 40watt - 2 sacks

Total - 12-13 sacks

Anyone who has not yet emailed me name and info, please do.

Anyone from past thread still interested please PM me.

You can go ahead and decide your sacks, but at this point this is really to account for the full pallet.

Freight appears to be somewhere in the $150 range according to the Houston Group Buy I believe, so this will add about $4 to each sack price.
