Hi All,

The Jan/Feb Group buy is now closed, so we can start building the next one from today.

As we get toward the minimum order with the maltster (40 sacks) I hope that travel will have become safer, and with some relaxation of the restrictions for journeys, especially for those a longer distance away.
Based on last time, I'd expect that we will be ordering for end of March, maybe sooner.

With that in mind, please send your provisional order by direct message to @Obadiah Boondoggle

No hard commitment is needed right now, as things might change with the lockdown restrictions, but it would help us to plan if we can get an idea of the group quantity. We will confirm with you nearer to the delivery date, to finalise what you need.

Currently collection from CW11, as last time, if safe and legal to do so.
As things become clearer potentially we hope to resume the original plan of local member collection points around the region and split pack quantities.

Prices (below) are all-inclusive and even include a handy sack with every purchase to carry your malt home in.
The price you see is the price you pay.

Great Thonbi

We have not set an exact date for the next buy for two reasons:

- We want to ensure that people can travel again so that they can collect, i.e when covid restrictions allow

- The magic number is 40 i.e. the number of bags on one pallet. This minimises delivery costs

If these two conditions are satisfied before April - we will go ahead whenever we are ready.

So we can start the next buy we would like people to say (now if they can) what they would have once travel restrictions are lifted

This is just an expression of interest at the moment and not a commitment on any ones part

When we have a 40 bag order and travel restrictions are lifted I will pm you to ask do you still want the bags you have expressed an initial interest in - if not - that's Ok. This just allows us to start to build the order

We will also look to provide 3kg bags of any of the malts if you would like to order some of these

In terms of price of the 3kg bags just take the price of a 25kg bag and divide it by 25 and then times it by 3

E.g. Pilsner @ £15.53 per bag

15.53 / 25 = 63p per Kg (assuming we round up) :?:

3 X 63p = £1.89 :tinhat:

So 3 kg Pilsner for £1.89 clapa

If you need it bagging (as opposed to bringing your own bag) - there would be a small charge for a bag

All these prices are, of course, based on collection from CW11

So please, anyone reading this, fire ahead with your order based on the above

Our understanding of the road map out of covid is that we should all be free again to travel by April

We, therefore, are planning to buy early April ish - so please let me have your interest by pm for 25kg & 3 kg bags

I don't yet know how to interpret the rules for Wales, but it may be a bit longer for this side of the border.

Maybe someone could throw the bags over the border fence?

:laugh8: We could try - hopefully it will be sorted by then; if not, no commitment on your part at this point
