One significant change from Brewboard policies is that since we are not affiliated with a homebrew shop, the organization of group buys is allowed and encouraged. So knock yourselves out. :lol:

This is a good thing. We no longer have to operate in the shadows. It'll cut my PM usage in half.

I'll take the one on the right. Just something about her ears all back and that tussled hair look. What can I get for 10 dollars?

If someone organizes a group buy of some wine kits let me know ... :)

+1But I have a feeling that any savings we would get for buying in bulk would be eaten by shipping costs. Maybe the BlueBoard could liaise with a HB company such as Austin Home Brew or the likes. AHB even set up custom recipes for some users on a different board. In addition to their board only 10% discount every once in a while.

We'll definitely look into that when things settle down a bit.

I would point out that dock to dock doesn't require you to have a dock either, I get large shipments all the time and I ask for things to be held at the shipper's dock and pick it up with a trailer.

We use North Country with our brew club all the time, fixed cost per pallet and yes the pricing is low, and shipping to dock saves $75 , yep that is what they charge for a tailgate truck delivery Best to do group buys in a local area.... also if you know a little about how their site is structured you can get to the commercial pricing pages and buy things like StarSan and Supermoss in bulk using the part numners. Gallon of Starsan was around $30 last year

If its delivered to a "business" without a raised dock or no fork truck, they still discount the shipping price. :cheers:
