UPDATE

I believe everyone is paid up; I'll update the spreadsheet later on today. This is the biggest buy so far ($13,300 and over 70 participants yet it's the quickest that we have ever collected payment (less than 4 days). Thanks, everyone.

I asked for a quote/invoice on Friday and I hope to get it on Monday. All of the money has been transferred to my account and it should be clear and available in full by Wednesday. But PayPal can be finicky. Same with the chase payments.

I've decided to do a wire transfer since a credit card payment would need to be done across multiple transactions that would probably take longer than a wire.

Realistically, we are looking at delivery late this week or early the following week. Keep in mind that when grain is delivered it still needs to be split prior to people picking up. We will probably need a whole day for the splits which probably means a Saturday since everyone works during the week.

Start planning your brewing sessions.

Heh. Most of you guys know where I live and work so that isn't really an option.

Just received an email from the supplier. The only items out of stock are Toasted Chips and PBW-8# containers (they only have two available at the moment). I asked if we could place these items on back order and am still awaiting a reply. Also they for got to add the shipping costs so I asked for that as well. Looks like all of the grains are in. Will keep everyone posted as usual.

EDIT: The JD Barrels were not included in the quote either so I need to ask about that also.

They are requesting a rate quote on the barrels. They will let me know ASAP.

Has anyone tried 3 Floyd's Ham on Rye? It came out a few years ago and I don't think they are going to make it again anytime soon. I am trying to brew something close to it. This is my current thinking on the grain bill. I will probably use T-58 for its peppery quality and a light dose of Saaz. Any thoughts or suggestions?

0.38 6.00 2 Row or Vienna
0.29 4.50 Smoked Malt
0.22 3.50 Rye
0.02 0.25 Honey Malt
0.03 0.50 Carapils or Wheat
0.06 1.00 .75 lbs of Honey
15.75 Pounds of Malt
24.00 Quarts
1.52 Quarts/Pounds
