This is the group buy thread for the Denver/Front Range group buy from Welcome to the Future of Your Beer!
Since Dahoov ordered a ton of grain last time, I have offered to take over planning the logistics for group grain buy #6. The info is mostly the same as last time, but here is the basic run-down:
The price break is at 1000 lbs. No further breaks are available. As an FYI the 5000 lb break is for commercial operations.
The price for all malted barley is 75 cents per lb or $37.50 per 50 lb sack.
The price for all malted wheat is 85 cents per lb or $42.50 per 50 lb sack.
Unmalted grain prices are now in the spreadsheet.
Shipping is a flat $150 to the Denver Metro area.
I live in Boulder, but Dahoov has offered to host the delivery at his place again. This will allow for people to pick up their grain at their leisure. He works from home so scheduling pick up times should be easy.
Jason indicated they can do a special Belgian style malt in the 3-4 Lovibond range if there is enough interest. They malt in batches of 4000lbs but he said if we can come up with greater than 500 lbs he is confident he can sell the rest.

Currently they don't have any pilsner or white wheat due to demand and back orders. He believes that by October they should be caught up and will have some for us.
After discussion about payment we agreed that it made more sense for one person to collect payment and give them one check. I am willing to collect the money and write the check. We can also open an escrow account but I don't know if there is a fee for this or how the logistics work. Suggestions how to handle payment are welcome.
A late January delivery will give us plenty of time to get everything in order and should also allow for the pilsner and white wheat malts to be available.
If people don't want a full sack, we can split them up for people at the house but we will need to make sure the orders total 50 lbs. The last of the grain that doesn't total 50 lbs will be dropped from the order.
I will post a link to the spreadsheet shortly.
Well, I can't think of anything else. As I get updates I will edit this post so check back.
