Brewers,

As mentioned, there is a new site we're using to help manage the group buys. A HBT user (trickydq) and I worked on putting this together (again, he did all the work, I just gave input along the way) and I think it's pretty slick. There may be bumps in the road since it's a new thing, but let's give it a shot.

The site is www.brewbuys.com

Create an account and then click to join a group buy. The code for this buy is:

dd4eef20-bdcc-46a0-9061-d0abb97ccd0f

Yes, it's long, just copy and paste it in. It keeps random types from just joining a buy and mucking things up.

I've uploaded the price list, so you should be able to start playing around with your order. Nothing is final until the buy is closed, so don't worry about being on the fence about part of your order, etc. You're basically just telling me what you want, for now...but please DO try to be relatively accurate (ie. don't order 15 bags of stuff if you're not sure if you're even going to buy ANYTHING)

I'm pretty sure we'll have payment work the same way as before, where you'll get a link to your order on Cowtown's site and pay via PayPal, like always.

Let me know what you think and give trickydq a for his efforts in creating this site/interface.

Tre,
I registered with the site without any problems, but the code to join the group buy did not seem to work. I cut and pasted the code right out of your earlier post?

Anyone else had this problem?

When I click the button "Join Group Buy" it takes me to an error page. Not sure if it is just my browser or something wrong within the page.

Ok, I was just having a browser issue. It worked great for me when I switched to a different computer. I'm down for three bags. Thank you very much for setting this up again Tre!

Hey everyone, as tre mentioned I've been working to build the site to make this whole process easier. Please feel free to PM me or send a message through the contact form on the site if you're having any issues. I'll try to be as responsive as possible.

Seems to work OK now.

I'm looking for some C60 at this point. The C40 just doesn't give me enough color at times but I don't want to have to use 20% of the grain bill with all that sweetness. All of that to say if you want to split a bag I'm game.

I just did the split on my bag of c60. To do a split all you do is check the box, then details, then select the email address of the person(s) you want to split with, then enter the percentages for them, yours will update based on theirs, ie. you get what's left.

dpatrickv, check and see that the split bag is showing up in your order.
