I'll add a bag:

1xBZ-PILS

You might want to start another thread with the heading saying this has been re-opened. Could be people tried to get in on it and saw it was full and probably won't check the thread again. Just a thought. Or maybe post an update in the old buy #5 thread.

I don't think Country Malt realizes that this is going to hurt their business significantly. We who used to pay $30 + shipping for a 50 lb sack of 2-row are not going to continue to use the same quantity of 2-row if we have to pay $50-65 + tax to buy it from our LHBS. I will probably brew 20-30% less because of this since I have a fixed budget for homebrew expenses.

It sounds like local brew clubs could potential set themselves up as a distributor though, by establishing an account with Country Malt and provided a TIN for tax purposes. Country malt is a fool if they are going to turn down business of this volume...$10,000 a day + at least from homebrewer group buys across the east coast.

Does anyone know of a brew store in Central VA that sells bulk 2-row for <$50 a bag? Too bad Northern Brewer is in Iowa and Not VA...they sell 2-row for $35/bag if you pick it up.

The homebrew shop in Fredericksburg has 2-row for $40 a bag. I've never asked them about other malts but their site says they order from Brewers Supply Group.

Yea that's pretty good. I wonder if their pricing on other sacks is just as good? I'll try to find out.

Hey guys - Regarding the change in pricing from NCM:

I wanted to post this up here in effort to have each group buy participant thinking about how they are spending their money. I would like to send a message to NCM for the arbitrary price change. However I can't do it alone, nor do I have the time to coordinate an effort like this. I also can't ask you all to boycott, because I know that many can't meet the price locally.

I have created this thread to post comments if you want to attempt to hash out your thoughts on NCM's business decision.

The guys at the Homebrew shop in Fredericksburg are helpful and seem to have pretty good prices. They are using space in another business that helps. They are also award winning brewers themselves.
