What kind? Also does anyone have any good recommendations for grain storage? I think I might buy some organic 2 row if anyone wants to split a bag of that. Or try out this "stout malt" from Loughran Family malt

Alex, the pet food bins that

Alex, the pet food bins that we use for the caramel malts in the grain shop area are pretty sturdy and a good option.

Speaking of, the grain currently in those bins is way past it's prime, so we're going to replace them with something new. The idea is to buy one sack every group buy to fill the bins. We will determine what grain will be purchased through a poll.

I went ahead and set up a Doodle poll with four grains. The four were suggested as options by members on Slack. (Please note that this is just a trial run. For future grain buys, members can suggest grains on the group buy forum string.) All of the grains on the poll require more than a pound and are commonly used, which will keep the stock rotating and fresh. Also, the price of the grains will allow us to keep the price at a dollar per pound.

Here's a link to the poll. It'll close a day before the group buy on Thursday, November 8th.

So, is it just the mobile site, or is the group buy missing a lot of grains? Like 2row from GW or Briess...

Can someone please order a tub of PBW and another Gallon of Starsan if Boollish hasn't already added to order?  We're down to our last one of each as far as I can tell.  ( I looked all over and didn't see any back ups)

I emptied and rinsed the containers that held the dark grains. They're drip drying at brew bay #1 in preparation for the Munich. If they're in the way this weekend, please relocate them to the club grain area. They should dry out over night.

The grain has been ordered, but it's looking like it'll be ready for pick up on Wednesday, rather than today. I'll post once it's been confirmed.
