I'm having trouble searching for the oak spirals. I was able to find the toasted oak chips so that's what I added but I tried searching using the keywords Spirals, Wood, Oak and they aren't coming up.

I suggest you use the item ID in the search and see what happens.

Just spoke to the new sales rep at Country Malt who handles our area. He is going to look into hop contracts and see if they are available for us in significantly smaller quantities than what I was originally told. I will keep everyone informed. In my opinion after talking to him tonight it sounds promising.

Reminder, group buy ends at midnight tonight so if you need to change grain or vendor type do so soon. Feel free to add other non grain items. 164 sacks in 10 days. Pretty impressive in my opinion. I honestly think that ghoti's database made a world of a difference.

Bill, you rock. Thanks for you persistence on this.

Ghoti, you too rock. This web interface is a huge convenience.

Thanks guys.

Sorry for the late response. Correct. However, I am willing to give up a pound if someone else wants in

Ghoti so far I have two buyers that haven't confirmed their initial hop split with me. One of them hasn't had any activity since the very beginning of the group buy. If I don't hear back from them soon I can sub you in, if still desired? Unless I fill both spots however I'm going to cancel the order.

EDIT:

I take that back, just one buyer Docgineer hasn't confirmed yet.
