Yes. Please add to shipping.

Ok. Shipping costs are approximately $0.63 per pound. Once the bag costs are calculated I'll let everyone know and add it to the spreadsheet.

Yes add the cost of bagging the hops. I would also suggest that you purchase a twelve pack of beer so the team weighing out the hops doesn't get thirsty. Add that to the cost allocation.

Great work, again, everyone involved! If anyone had to pick up extra Magnum, Hallertau, or Styrian Goldings to make it work for the group, I'd be interested in a little of any of these.



Anyone interested in a group buy on sixtel kegs? I've had it with my 20 pin locks and it's worth the premium price to have something that just works. Looks like about $100-110 per keg delivered and there are various sizes available besides the standard 1/6 bbl size. Type D sanke connectors FTW!

Let's be mindful of hbt rules and remember that hbt group buys are for ingredients only. Thanks.

If you're looking to unload some of your pin locks, I just started kegging and only have one...plus I'm a grad student and can't afford the premium price to go with anything better. Would love to buy some from you if you're migrating away from them. PM me if you're interested!
