Sorry if I sounded like I was getting pissed! I didn't mean it like that at all. I personally have more hobbies than I can afford so I like to do things as cheaply as possible. He has agreed to $25 as of right now but I haven't stopped negotiating! When I stopped talking with him I said o would talk to everyone else. I just want to make sure there is interest before I try to lower the price more. Ultimately I want to get them for 15 - 20 per keg! That being said if he doesn't work with us on the price I will take 5. If we can get them for less I'm in for 10+. I will not accept anything less than kegs that work at 100% so don't worry! If this happens every keg will be personally inspected by me and hopefully one of you!

Yeah - mparsons - $25 is a good deal. I was saying that if he charges 35 unless 100 are sold then that is crap given the fact that we will be picking them up from him onsite and will incur cost to do so. If enough folks get in on this though - the cost to get them up to cuse and similar will be well worth it.

I appreciate that you let us all in on this one, whether it works out or not.

I am like you, have too many hobbies and looking to save a buck where ever and whenever I can... thus why I started the grain buys

Again, I appreciate all the work you and everyone else that are involved in the group buy do! Just trying to help out any way that I can! The guy they has the kegs also owns an ice business so I guess he just doesn't need the money... I however am very persistent and he will probably lower the price just to get rid of me!

I would take 5 if the price is 25. If the price dips to 15 I would take another 5. This is assuming they are in decent shape. If I get one bad keg it negates the savings...

Hey guys,

I had some free time so I put together a google doc's spreadsheet for doing grain buys. My idea is to have a centrally located document online so that each person who wants to join the grain buy can manually enter grains/splits themselves and free Cidah from manually tracking requests in the forum. The thought is to make it a little easier on him for these buys.

This spreadsheet is not yet in use yet (and may never be). Its up to Cidah if we wants to go this direction. I just wanted to show it to the group to get a feel if this is even attractive to you guys.

My current thought is to have trusted buyers manually added to the access list of this sheet (so that random people cant screw it all up). Once you have access, you go in and add bags to your order and/or access splits. The sheet is mostly automated and only white backgrounded cells are supposed to be edited by buyers. I wanted to force protection on grayed cells, but google docs doesn't support this so be careful.

I loaded up the current list of grain/chemicals from this buy to just give you an idea of how it would work. Sheet 1 is editable by buyers, the pricing sheets will be controlled by Cidah or I.

Non-Editable version for people to see:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...ENtekEwcFlXbXc

Again THIS IS ONLY A DEMO AND NOT THE ACTUAL BUY SHEET.

Let me know what you think.

Jeff B
