No problem. I went ahead and requested a quote. Once it's received I'll send out payment requests. I plan to handle everything through PayPal.

If it's not too late, I'd like to change my 1 bag of cm-2row to a bag of tf-mopa. If it is too late, not a problem. More importantly, how did you go through 10 bags since the last buy? I'm still on my 1.5. Maybe I need to brew more...

same here; I am only 2 batches into my stash from the last buy. You are doing some serious brewing.

I got a bad response from Country Malt when I requested an actual quote. Now they don't want to do business with me without a business name and tax id. I may have a work-around but I'm not sure. At best this will delay things and at worst it will kill the the buy with them. If it dies with the country malt we can look at the alternatives like the 3 homebrew shops around Houston or online, but the cost per pound will go up a lot.

I haven't gone through all my grain from last time, but this time I'm looking for some MO and crystal compared to the pilsner and 2-row I have around. I had bought enough for at least a year at the last bulk buy. However, I usually split batches and so far in 2012 I've made 40 gal on my system and I've kept 20 gal with another 10 gal being made on Sunday.

MacGyver22, my system is all electric when I've brewing at home. Let me know you're interested and I'll let you know the next time I'm brewing at home (Pearland). This week will be on a friend's system and next week's will be all gas at the our clubs brew-in so I probably won't make another batch with electric system until March.

Schaez,

Have you had any luck with Country Malt? Did the work around work, or are you just up to your neck with work stuff - I know what that is like.

I do have a DBA, but not a separate tax ID, don't know if that would help or not.

The electric brewery is pretty much done, just the final, final tests and we're ready to brew. Hoping to fire it up this weekend for the inaugural brew.

Thanks,
Ned

I have a registered business and tax id, but then they also wanted a check or credit card in the business name which I don't have.

That is really strange - never heard of a place that wouldn't accept a regular old visa, regardless of the name. Would they take a bank check, or wire transfer from a bank?

It sounds like they're trying to get away from dealing with individuals, preferring breweries and homebrew stores instead. Too bad… out of curiosity, are there other malt suppliers that other group buys are using?
