i think you entered these in about half way into the buy, but i could never get them to show up on my order...not sure if bill was going to manually enter them for my order, but wanted to make sure i didn't miss out! figure this is the time to try out the combs, and different woods. sorry if this is being handled already!

one of each of these (5 gal):

CHERRY - BS-CHER-5
HICKORY - BS-HICK-5
HARD MAPLE - BS-MAPL-5
SOFT MAPLE - BS-SMAP-5
RED OAK - BS-ROACK-5
WHITE ASH - BS-WASH-5
WHITE OAK - BS-WOAK-5
YELLOW BIRCH - BS-YBIR-T

Bill would have to take care of adding it now, as the group buy is close and it can not be added through the website.

Not currently showing anything under Completed or Active group buys right now. Not sure if that's how its supposed to be just pointing it out. I only had two items on the order, some wood chips and some Starsan. Everything else I'm getting is part of a split.

I received a call back from the rep at Country Malt. Hop contracts are NOT available to home brewers. Their rationale is that all of the home brewers would run up orders on hops which are already in tight supply. We can buy hops that are in stock but that's about it. Also, some prices, mainly for hops I was told, have gone up. Once we get the quote we will adjust if we need to.

Here's a dumb question: Any idea on the anticipated delivery date? Is it usually on the weekend or during the week? I am curious since my wife and kids seem to account for 99% of my free time these days...

that is still at least over a week away. it usually takes people a week to send in their payment after we get a quotation. these buys take a little bit of time due to the amount of participants.
