1. CM-WHET - 1/3 (Copyright1997, JeffB418) - needs 1

So, I get remaining 1/3 makes 2/3 of sack for me.

4. GP‐FLRCE 1/4 (Copyright1977, jhenderson, cidahmastah) - needs 1
So, I get remaining 1/4 makes 1/2 of sack for me.

I may have to rent a truck to get this stuff!
I'll go 1/2's with you on the CM-WHET.

Default BD-VIEN vs. other-VIEN

Doing some last minute looking through the catalog. I see in the group order folks ordering various kinds of this:
Rustbucket - GW-VIEN x1 (Great Western: Canada/USA?, .56/#, 50# sack)
Twogunz - BZ-VIEN x 1 (Best Maltz: Germany, .56/#, 55# sack)
Jeff - BZ-VIEN x 1 (same is Twogunz)
There is also:
FB-VIEN ( .61/#, 55 # sack) Malteries Franco-Belges. France
BD-VIEN (.56/#, 55# sack) Bairds: UK.
GB-VIEN (.68/#, 55# sack) Gambrinus Malting: USA/Canada?

Right now I have my order as BD-VIEN, but for no good reason. Anyone out there having bought it - any pro/cons from various suppliers. I guess my preferences is one of the lower cost (GW, BZ, BD). Another non-quality factor would be GW is 50# vs. rest being 55#, so that is a slight advantage in terms of what I have to stuff in my car.

So, should I switch to GW (smaller sack) or BZ (from Germany) or keep as is?

Thanks.

Actually, with my final 2 closeouts, I think we get to 62 + 1 from Cidah's "promise" = 63.

I still think this group is good for 80!

That's right I am going to lump another bag on the order!! so right now we have 63 bags - I hate odd numbers, so somebody should make it 64!

as for the vien - I went with a non-domestic brand (GW is domestic). Reason being I was shooting for pilsners and some other brews that are non-domestic. I thought it would be more authentic if I went with BD or BZ. For me the extra 5lbs is an advantage

do you need more time to consider and order? I was just saying we should close it up because I figured people were done, and probably wanted to get some grain before the snow flys.

I am adding a bag of MOPAx1

EVERYONE - GET YOUR LAST BAGS IN!!! WE ARE AT 63!!! I plan on updating the sheets this morning and getting this over to the buyer. If you want me to put it off a day, I can do that. But just want to be sure that we are holding off to add bags.

this split only needs one!
TF-AMBR - 1/3 (Mparsons327, CBK) - needs 1*would consider 1/4*
