I will setting up the sheets to print out like it does on your order, so it will just list of your items. Maybe I will designate something on the spreadsheet that will note splits

I like the limiting of base malts, but in (maybe) my sole interest, extend the bases out...i.e. 2-row is different than golden promise, is different than maris, is different than ____...most 2 rows are the same, but that golden promise...

One concern: if no one is responsible for a split, would that leave bill responsible for the actual splitting, or just have the participants measure out theirs on arrival?

Participants measuring is fine. Aside from me taking an extra pound of hops I shouldn't have (PM me if I have your hops), it worked fine at Bill's for me to measure out my hops and grain splits then toss a new zip tie on the sack. With the new spreadsheet format we won't have the same issue as with my stupidity upon pickup.

This leaves no additional labor on Bill's part if we handle the weighing ourselves. I would suggest though that any split participants are required to bring a bucket for grain.

Did you check with the person who picked up for you? Maybe you two have each other's grain.

At least it was 2-row for same, if the accidental recipient notices they could work it out next buy. What's the difference ? $2 or so.

I have 3 bags of 2-row that were shipped in place of organic pilsen and vienna. If they don't exchange them and I have to purchase the correct grain would anyone be interested in the 3 bags? I have more than enough grain so I can't keep it myself.
