Around the Lansing area. If you are interested though I might be able to get the grain closer to you via my bro who's a state cop in Indiana and works Marshall county.

I'm going to keep an this thread. My in-laws live in LaPorte County, so this could be doable if you brother is on board. What kind of a buy are we looking at.

Assuming you're talking about grain, I'd definately be interested. Depends on the final cost, but I could see myslef getting maybe 3 sacks of 2 row and maybe 2 sacks of munich. I live in the Detroit area, so Lansing is doable for me.

Definitely grain, guys.Since we already have a few people interested I think it might be worthwhile to get in contact with North Country Malt and find out how much we can stuff on a pallet.

What the hell does that mean? Chain gang? LOL :(I'm not really brewing right now and I've got an inventory I actually want to clear out, but I might go in for some base grains.I'd suggest getting chemicals too. I'd be good for some Star-San, acid cleaner, and maybe PBW too.

I prefer to think of it as the Hillbilly Parcel Service. :)If we can get chemicals on the pallet then I'd be in for some StarSan and PBW.Maybe we should start to get a tally going? Personally I'd like 7 bags of grains.

I added a tally to the first post. I'll update it as more people commit. Looks like we've got 1/3 of a pallet at this point.

Just so everybody knows, they charge a HazMat fee for the chemicals. We need to make sure that that fee is charged only to those who ordered chems.

LOL.Just know that I think they only ship by the case. So, probably looking at four gallon jugs. As far as I know the stuff doesn't go bad.I'd go for at least 1 jug of Star-San and 2 Acid #5 (I think that's the phosphoric/nitric acid -- blktre?) And a 50# bucket of PBW. I'd probably go for a sack of TF Maris Otter too. I'll talk to the LBHS. They might be up for something if they can get a deal on shipping.

Hazmat fee is straight up $15 no matter how much is ordered. Just remember, each case or bucket takes a sak spot on the pallet.Ive got a Excel spreadsheet w/ everything on MCM website. All it needs is the current market price plugged in and the sheet does all the math. I may be able to send it to whomever is running your pallet. LBG buys 4-5 pallets per year from MCM.
