dave, is this still the case?

We are at 165 sacks already. I want to cut off the buy but there are still some non grain items that some people were having trouble adding soI wnted to leave it open for them add them. Please refrain from adding additional grain. Thank you.

Just found out that hop contracts *are* available to home brewer group buys. However, the minimum order would be 330 pounds or 30 boxes (at 11 pounds). Do I sense a hop contracts group buy in the works?

Reason: updated information

Thanks for following up on this. That's over a single season/year, correct? Also, can we specify some of the contract but leave the balance as TBD. In other words, sign for a guaranteed 110lbs Simcoe, 110lbs Amarillo, 55lbs Citra and the rest as needed?

What are the terms? % of contract as a deposit, pay as they deliver etc?

There has to be at least 8-10 boxes of hops on this order alone. 30 doesn't seem unreasonable.

Trying to get the last short sleeve brew day of the season in but this wind is robbing all my BTUs! If my strike water ever gets up to temp I'll be testing out the BeerSmith2 Lite for Android.... integrated cloud recipe storage and brew timer.

You guys just operate too damn quickly these days. I was busy and out of town and BOOM! 4 pallets are spoken for. Was hoping to get in on a little of this action, but it seems closed.

Bill, I applied to the website but never got a confirmation e-mail.
