I don't see the rice hulls I ordered, are they considered "extras" like hops and Irish moss?

I'm sorry Bill, I meant that the list of sacks for the group buy didn't have the rice hulls. I was wondering if they counted, or should count towards the "70 sacks" we're currently at. Again, sorry to make you do more work on this one.

If you're referring to the spreadsheet, I have to update that manually. But, yes, rice hulls do count as a sack.

Bill, I'd say that considering you coordinate the buy, provide the storage, the fork truck, deal with a boatload of folks coming and going from your business, solicit the vendor proposal, deal with the splits.. if you don't want thingamabobs or doohickies on the order.. I fully support that... it is called a "group grain buy" after all. And grain and hops are probably the most marked up bulk product at the brew shops.
So whatever side of the fence you you want to fall toward, I'll push you. What are friends for.

Side note: I'm picking down my garden, if timing is right on pick up I an more than happy to share jalepeno, habanero, chili, kungpao, cayenne if anyone does the crazy heartburn brews.

To my knowledge most of the hop buys are full. You may have to start one yourself. I think someone was trying to get a "Summit" buy started, there may be something left in the "Pacific Jade" buy, but I'm unsure.
