I have a commercial building with part wharehouse and with a forklift in Mineola, NY (Nassau county, LI). If anyone is interested in forming a group buy for grains let me know.
I have never organized a group buy so if someone with experience wants to do this with me, I am all for it.
I am still only doing partial mash batches. While I am not interested in 55 pound bags of grain I would be interested in going in on some grain with others. If there was some extract thrown in, that would be awesome, this stuff is expensive.
I think one of the hardest parts (time consuming) is getting an account with a distributor.
Just bought a few sacks in the last group buy in the area and shouldn't need more until this winter.
Though I might order bulk hops if they offer it.
