we are up to 42 sacks. Please reply with your location and how you intend to get your grain.
As i mentioned i can mule to CT but will only make 2 stops (Danbury and Manchester) so you CT folks will need to work together and find a distributor that can pickup your orders.
Once everyone replies with their location, how they intend to get their grain and confirm the order as listed on the spreadsheet i will double check the order totals and then provide details on how to provide payment.
If everyone wants to pickup their order in New Milford, CT i will entertain taking Poobah up on his loading dock offer. We'd save around $4 per sack in shipping. This will only happen if all CT buyers will pickup their orders in New Milford, i would only mule sacks to poughkeepsie (id split my fuel bill with those picking up in pougkeepsie)
I would be good with picking up my grain in New Milford, CT. If someone would be willing to mule 2 sacks to Manchester, I would work with that also. I checked the google doc and my order is correct, 2 x Briess 2row
I will check this thread daily for updates. PM me if you want to work out transport deals.
When would this buy happen and be delivered? I am out of the state Oct. 2 through Oct. 10. Let me know if it would be over this time period.
The buy is full so as soon as we work out the logistics of pickup / delivery i will request payment from folks, when i have all payments i will place the order. it usually arrives the 2nd day. Id guess delivery would be sometime the first week of october.
im thinking delivery in New Milford might work best.
1/3 of the sacks are going to New Milford
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour west
1/3 of the sacks are going 1 hour east
i will mule for the sacks going to poughkeepsie (west). everyone else can either pickup in new milford or coordinate someone to mule east.
Ok, take a swing at some coordination. It looks like indibrewer, roguemcflatfour64 and brewskerdoo (me) are the 4 central(ish) CT participants that might want to work together to get our bags back to the Hartford area most economically.
If one of the 4 of us can pick up all 12 sacks, we could come up with some number per sack each of us would owe to cover your expenses.
I work in East Hartford and live in Berlin I so I could potentially do the pickup on a Sat. and meet up on the following Monday in E. Hartford to distribute.
Of course if anyone else can get the central CT 12 sacks closer to us, that's even better.
I have no issues doing that but I own a sedan and don't think I can fit all those bags in the trunk? I think whoever brings back those bags we all can meet at the park and ride lot in Manchester right off exit 62 at a set time.
Does anyone have a vehicle that could haul the 12 bags? I have a little Mazda that couldn't handle the 600#'s. I too could pick up my bags at exit 62 in Manchester, I'm just not sure what our options are at this point.
I can handle the 12 bags. My truck gets around 14 mpg unloaded. Google
says my round trip Berlin / New Milford millage is around 90 miles. Some quick calculatin' and i come up with roughly $2.25 / bag to cover my gas. That sound reasonable?
Sorry for the confusion. Let me try and clarify.
My intent is to make the pickup on whatever Saturday we are told the order is ready.
I will hold on the sacks until the next Monday when I am back to work in East Hartford and we'll figure out a convenient time and place to meet.
I did not include my mileage from Berlin to E. Hrfd in my expense recovery calculation because I have to travel that distance anyway.
I think this where I caused the confusion.
Everyone still in?
Oh, and one last thing. I will be out of town 10/12 thru 10/14 so hopefully this comes through either before or after my mini-vaca.
Great, that works for me! Again, I do need to mention I will be out of state 10/2 to 10/10, so depending on timing, I may have to work something out. I'm sure rougemc and I could coordinate since we do work together...
Thank you for offering to mule all that grain, brewskerdoo. I also have a sedan and cannot haul a big load.
Thanks for all your work on this buy k47k. I'm very happy that this moved along so quickly. I want to make sure that I pick up the PayPal fees, is there something special I need to do when I send the $$?
I am also sending via PayPal. I added 3% but I don't know why. Seems like it should be no charge. I am not buying goods or services, simply reimbursing. Don't know why they gave you such a hard time before but oh well...
Yea i dont know whats up with paypal, this all started when i was doing regular buys for another club, people would reimburse me via paypal. one day i get a letter from paypal instruction me to stop using the Gift option or they would cancel my account.
I had a lawyer review paypals terms of service and what i was doing was well within their TOS. They drafted a letter to paypal, which they blew off. "stop doing it or your account will be closed".
i didnt want to waste anymore resources fighting it so we just decided to use money orders, cash or paypal with the fees paid.
Is there any way you can notify me when?? I'm ramping up my homebrewing for the Winter, and also buying a grain mill (recommendations anyone?) Or should I just monitor the Forum. I'm in the Providence Area, if any lurkers out there are interested in a Group Buy. But someone will have to find a person with a NCM Account so we can place an order. Methinks that an alliance with a Boston or Eastern CT Group buy is more realistic, but you never know till you bring it up. Manchester CT is not that far from PVD.
i have the 3/8" shaft and after much use its slightly out of true, most likely because i hang a heavy drill off of it. doesnt affect function at all.
I would also like the 1/2" so the drill can have better bite. the 3/8" shaft has some very small flats milled, i would go for the 1/2" and ask monster to mill larger flats so there is no chance of the drill slipping on the shaft.
