FYI - I'm going to be out of pocket from 7:30 AM- 6:00 PM this week. Apologies in advance if I don't get back in touch with someone until evening.

Thanks bja - that puts us at 2 full pallets.

All, I'll work on getting the final numbers tonight and tomorrow and will send out "invoices" as soon as that's done

So, it looks like I missed another one. Are you starting from scratch with a new round or are we working on the sheet from the last round? I don't want to mess up the spreadsheet.

Also, can we order hops?

Thanks!

Adam

Start pulling your list together offline - I'm going to put out a list that starts with the open splits from this last one around Monday or Tuesday (12/13 or 12/14).

I'm up for doing hops, but we need someone with an industrial vacuum sealer. They only come in 11# or 44# bags. Also, the good ones are sold out for the year - we'd have to go long on a hops contract for Fall 2013 (or 2014 for the uber popular ones).

Another option is to get together and split an order to Hops Direct or another provider with good prices but bad shipping.

I would be interested in a couple bags of base grain on the next go-round. I'll keep an eye out.

Here's a great place for hops. http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/
the owner jeff is great to deal with and he may give us some deals. i got over 6 lbs of hops from him this year and most were around $8.oo/lb. shipping was $5.00 for 3 lbs.
we will need to break down the packages. i have found mylar bags fo around 7.00/100 that will hold an ounce or 2.. just thought this may be an option for us. oh and i have a snorkle vac. sealer that will seal the bags. it's not comercial but it works fine.

Sounds reasonable to me. All we'd need is a proper heat sealer (i've burned myself with enough irons to say i'm not a fan of sealing with one) and (potentially) a nitrogen tank if we want to flush the bags. I may be able to provide the nitrogen tank...been thinking of getting one for exactly this reason.
