and advising your club to boycott on all ingredients
i'm down with that plan except for that last part. i wouldn't say "boycott", that seems retaliatory. instead i'd point out that folks are naturally going to be more loyal to the place that will accommodate the group buy, will be dropping in for additional supplies, etc... you know, that whole honey/vinegar thing.

I think that everyone should stand a picket line around all the LHBS

10,000 lbs? try 25,000 lbs (477 sacks). that's a lot of grain to unload from a truck and haul into their store one sack at a time.

I know their selection is **** compared to CMG, but its better then nothing right?
Has anyone dealt with GW Kent I was thinking about giving them a try ?

They are decent. Limited on selection, no MO options. They require loading dock for delivery of pallets. And shipping prices are slightly higher than NCM. No shipping discount for multiple pallets like NCM would offer. Just be clear with your order upfront.

They do offer Gambrinus ESB Malt which I've read is suppose to be similar to Marris Otter.

I boycotted the Brewcraft table at the NHC 2013 Expo in protest of NCM stopping shipments to our group buys. Saw very little traffic at their table...

was there an NCM sticker in our goodie bag? i ended up with one, and i avoided the NCM table like the plague.

i had half a mind to go tell them, very politely, that i disagreed with their recent decisions to stop selling directly to group buys but i didn't want to be that negative in what was otherwise the happiest place on earth (IMO). besides, those folks behind the table likely had nothing to do with the decision and were even more likely to be powerless to do anything about it.

I checked on Cargill and their pricing is about $.07 to $.10 a pound more and shipping is about double what NCM is.
