Default Central NJ Malt Group Buy

The group buy is definitely a GO but the PALLET is now FULL so orders are closed.. There might be a slot here or there if the folks who need to pay in advance don't come through.

The shipping would be to Piscataway and you'd pick up your share from there. Of course, I encourage you to post your interest here and make sure your location is evident so distribution can be coordinated if a few people are from similar neighborhoods.

The WHALES homebrew club is also buying quite a few sacks so figure on about $6 per sack for shipping.

The source is Northcountrymalt.com and they carry Bairds, Best Maltz, Thomas and Fawcett, etc.

PAYMENT
If you're a long time supporting member here, I'll take your word that you'll pick up and pay what you said you'll pick up. Pay cash in person. If you're not, I'll take payment in advance via check or paypal.

I will place the order next Friday or Monday 8/10/08 the latest and will take shipment as soon as they can arrange it.

So far:
Bobby_M 3 sacks (2 MO, Pilsner)
AnoldUR 2 sacks MO, 20lb specialty, 1 sack BM Wheat to split with BKOV.
BKOV 2 sacks MO, 1/2 sack of wheat split with AnoldUR, 20# specialty.
Wilserbrewer 2 sacks (Canada 2-row, MO) + 20 pounds specialty - PM'd me info already.
Flyangler 2 sacks (Canada 2-row, MO) , + 25 pounds specialty.
Rommelmagic 2 sacks (Canada 2-row, MO) + 10lb each vienna and munich, 5lb wheat
MrNate 2 sack TF MO, 1 sack Can Pilsen (any problem with Best Maltz German Pils?) + 5lb Munich if left.
Southandros 1 Pils Franco-Belge #HF101, 1 Munich, Best # B201, 2 Pils, BestMaltz, B101, 2 sacks Canada Malting #2060

WHALES club 11 sacks mixed.

Community split: 5 sacks (20L, 40L, Vienna, Munich, Pale Wheat) $5/5lb.


Here's the price list..find the malt you want, multiply the 1000# price by 55 to get the sack price, then add $6 per sack to cover shipping to my house. http://www.countrymaltgroup.com/pdf/NC_SalesBook.pdf

Pickup Locations
Primary is my house in Piscataway NJ which is very accessible from RT 18, RT 287, and the TNPK.
AnoldUR offered to deliver your malt down "near" Philly (Seargentsville) and Wilserbrew can get it down to souther Monmouth County. I can get your malt up into Paramus, NJ which is basically the northern tip.


I'm not profitting from this deal at all in case you were wondering.

I also have a feeler post out to my homebrewclub (The WHALES). While a pallet can hold 42 sacks, the cost effective threshold is at about 20 sacks. I think that's reasonable.

The source is Northcountrymalt.com and they carry Bairds, Best Maltz, Thomas and Fawcett, etc.

If we get 20+ sacks, the per sack price on Baird's Maris Otter for example, is $45 shipped. At 40 sacks, it's $42 each. (note that Brewer's Apprentice and Keystone Homebrew are getting about $65-68 for the same malt).

If you're a long time supporting member here, I'll take your word that you'll pick up and pay what you said you'll pick up. If you're not, I'll take payment in advance.

Since the project is still up in the air, I can't give you an exact date of when it would go down, but I'm targeting for a late August ship date.

Thoughts? How many sacks of what kinds of malt?
Bobby,

I did a group buy like you are proposing back in April and it's a great way to get grain in bulk. I got 41 sacks on a pallet and the price is the same for shipping if it's 20 or 42 sacks of grain. The most cost effective way is to try and get full pallets.

Count me in for one sack of the Baird's Maris Otter.

Edit: Make that two. (Just thinking about how fast that last sack went!)

I also have in-laws up in Paramus so I could drop off maybe up to 4 sacks.

Iím definitely in on this, and am located roughly half way between Philly and Easton, across the river in NJ. If any of you PA guys are interested, I would be willing to bring your grain this far for you. Work your payment out with Bobby and you can pick-up here.

I'm in for two sacks, maybe three (2 row...MO it's all good). Are you thinking of splitting any specialty grains?

Thanks for taking this on Bobby, I've been on the lookout for an opportunity like this. I propose a free sack for Bobby for taking on this task!

PS I'm in Southern Monmouth county (Wall) and would be willing to haul an additional 4-5 sacks in that direction.

I plan on adding a sack of crystal 20, 40, Vienna and Munich (light) and breaking it into 5lb shares at $5. I think there are very few others that you'd really use enough of to make it worth it.

to get the cheapest possible prices, do the sacks all have to be the same or can they be mixed? For example, lets say we got a total of 11 sacks for bairds maris otter, and 11 sacks for wheat. Would the maris otter still be $45 shipped?

The per sack price goes down as the number of total sacks goes up because the shipping cost is fixed at $132. If we only got 20 sacks for example, it's $132/20 or about $7 shipping on top of each sack.
