Tuesday I can likely do. Wednesday, no way. Have to be in NYC most of the day.

The grain has arrived! Let's do a pickup this Saturday afternoon. If anyone needs theirs sooner, PM me and we can work something out. Otherwise PM me before sat and I will provide the address and phone number.

Also, consider everything squared up for costs. I'm covering the difference, mostly for two reasons- I was pleasantly surprised how many people were, "And he's a dollar or two more for those who can't do math," and the other reason of "I'm too lazy."

Anyway way, what time is good for you, tomj ? I figure if people can pick up around the same time, then the homebrew swap will be easier, plus easier for you spending less time at work on a Saturday... ;-) It's where the delivery was, correct?

Holy crap, I just realized I'll be picking up nearly 1,200 pounds of grain Saturday (grabbing mine plus that of three others). Think a mini-van can handle that?

1200 pounds - Hell, that"s just four chicks and a cooler full of homebrew!

I wouldn't call those chicks. Perhaps Linebacker, maybe moose, definitely not chicks at at least 200lbs a piece.
Figure a generous 325lb driver, 75lb cooler, that makes Chaz Bono & company more of a threat to your homebrew and snacks than any kind of a fun ride!

Grain in hand, all 21 bags of it. Thanks to tomj and josh and whomever else had a hand in organizing this. Well done.

To the three of you to whom I'm delivering, be extra nice to me. Your future brews are now in my possession and in danger of being held hostage.

My plan is to head to Lee on Monday morning, probably arriving in the 10:15-10:30 range. I know there is a truck stop at the Rt. 7/Pike junction that could act as a drop point. If that works or if one of you has a better idea, let me know.
