My order is good. I would pickup in Poughkeepsie ... I will split the fuel costs with you if you decide to pick it up in New Milford.

I would be good with picking up my grain in New Milford, CT. If someone would be willing to mule 2 sacks to Manchester, I would work with that also. I checked the google doc and my order is correct, 2 x Briess 2row

I will check this thread daily for updates. PM me if you want to work out transport deals.

When would this buy happen and be delivered? I am out of the state Oct. 2 through Oct. 10. Let me know if it would be over this time period.

The buy is full so as soon as we work out the logistics of pickup / delivery i will request payment from folks, when i have all payments i will place the order. it usually arrives the 2nd day. Id guess delivery would be sometime the first week of october.

im thinking delivery in New Milford might work best.

1/3 of the sacks are going to New Milford
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour west
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour east

i will mule for the sacks going to poughkeepsie (west). everyone else can either pickup in new milford or coordinate someone to mule east.

Ok, take a swing at some coordination. It looks like indibrewer, roguemc flatfour64 and brewskerdoo (me) are the 4 central(ish) CT participants that might want to work together to get our bags back to the Hartford area most economically.
If one of the 4 of us can pick up all 12 sacks, we could come up with some number per sack each of us would owe to cover your expenses.
Any volunteers?
I work in East Hartford and live in Berlin I so I could potentially do the pickup on a Sat. and meet up on the following Monday in E. Hartford to distribute.
Of course if anyone else can get the central CT 12 sacks closer to us, that's even better.

I have no issues doing that but I own a sedan and don't think I can fit all those bags in the trunk? I think whoever brings back those bags we all can meet at the park and ride lot in Manchester right off exit 62 at a set time.

Does anyone have a vehicle that could haul the 12 bags? I have a little Mazda that couldn't handle the 600#'s. I too could pick up my bags at exit 62 in Manchester, I'm just not sure what our options are at this point.

Flatflour, brewskerdoo do you guys have a vehicle to haul the grains? If not then we have to look for other options.

K47k is there a possibility to stick to original plan?

I can handle the 12 bags. My truck gets around 14 mpg unloaded. Google
says my round trip Berlin / New Milford millage is around 90 miles. Some quick calculatin' and i come up with roughly $2.25 / bag to cover my gas. That sound reasonable?

That sounds good to me brewskerdoo, I would pay you $5 cash to bring my 2 sacks to Berlin. Once we know hard dates, we can set up a time for me to pick up from you.
