Bill, I'd say leaving the last pallet partially unfilled would be perfect since hopefully they can add the non-malt items to that one. Cheaper than shipping a skid with just 4 boxes of hops and cleaner. Although that darn seductive 'add more grain' button just cost me a couple more sacks so it's that much fuller. edit**oops, math skills lacking 164 IS short of full** I edit my vote to option C, "present"

Simcoe is sold out at this source via contracts past 2013 I did find leaf in stock at freshops last night, you might try there. The thought of 48oz ea of Simcoe and Amarillo safely tucked away for next year was just too tempting after a couple rye-PA...

You use simcoe/ Amarillo for your rye-AP/IPA? Recipe?


Also how do the prices compare at freshops? I didnt see much of a savings with this GB for the PITA of splitting up 11lb bags.

I don't know about this. Cascade at freshops is $1.25 per ounce which comes out to $20 per pound. Cascade (pellets) is at $6.39 per pound; or just under $0.40 per ounce.

A pound of Simcoe there is close to $30 before shipping. Hops in the group buys are generally half the cost (at least) of hops at a brew shop. But there is the issue of ordering in 11# increments and missing the more popular varieties, they don't even have Chinnook. You can also peruse the probrewer forums for trades/buys on bulk amounts of hops going unused, but that is still in bulk amounts.

Ghoti, props on the website,this is my first group buy and it was super easy!!!!

There's a pound of Northern Brewer left. And a lot of Magnum and Warrior still open.

Just the Simcoe usually in the RPA. I typically use FWH Centennial for bittering with combos of those two and cascade for flavor/late additions. It definitely gets dryhopped with Simcoe. I have DH with Simarillo and it's good, but this 48oz of Amarillo is earmarked for Gumby'sballs&head.

Like Bill already said, for the most part it is still cheaper to buy a 11lb box and split. It's hard to beat a pound of Cz Saaz for ~$8.

Speaking of, Saaz anyone? I'll front.

Update/Edit:
2# SrBailey
4# MrBill
1# Cadwallion
1# Gothic Horror
2# Me
1# Metic

Thanks folks, looks like we're filled nicely with Neopol flying standby.
