    If you are in the Ballarat region and want bulk grain then contact Russell at the Ballarat Home Brew Shop asap as he is co-ordinating a bulk buy. Orders need to be in and paid by Aug 20th and pickup on Aug 27th. He is also doing 1kg hop packs.

    I, for one, am interested in splits.

    Hey Lecterfan, I'm in the same boat as you im pretty well stocked up for base malts but I'm keen but probably for splits... I'm happy to jump on 1 or 5kg splits on specialty malts and hops most likely around 250grams... I'm keen for US and Australian Hops...

    Cool. I'm doing a wheat split that is already sorted out, but I'd love to go halves in a bag of rye. I would also go 5kgs split in specs. Looks like this first one might be a bit quiet before people get up and running. Let me know if you want to come to the brew club catchup on 10th September also!

    I am already doing a US cascade split and would be happy to split my 500gms 50/50 with you (250gms each). I would also split (in order of preference) Mosaic, Falconer's Flight, and Amarillo.

    Ok here is the stuff so far.

    I have 500gms cascade, tim will take 250gms of that (split and pay me on the 27th)

    I will buy 1kg of mosaic - tim can take 250gms, Herbo can take 250gms (split and pay me on the 27th).

    Herbo is going to split 1kg of Amarillo with Colonel, I will take 250gms of Herbo's half (give it to me for free cos I'm a good bloke haha).



    I will also have 500gs of Northdown that I will be prepared to split but am happy not to.

    Sounds like a plan, not so sure about one of the suggested conditions of the Amarillo swap but will see how we go

    Marty, I'd have to pay you back in a fortnight, but I'd split Falconers Flight with you (so it'd have to part of your order) - up to you if you. I'm already a little over budget.

    Anyone know what year crop the hops are? I would assume they will be recent but thought I'd check anyway, it takes me a while to get through them so the most recent crop available would be ideal. If no one knows I'll give him a buzz at some stage tomorrow and ask.

    I'm going in today to pay for my order so I'll re-iterate that we are assuming the hops will be the most recent crops available and that he will do his best to ensure this. I would assume if he's buying the 1kg foil bags they'll be as good as any of us could get elsewhere?

    I phoned Russell earlier today. He said that he would hope the hops are the most recent crops available. I think it's in his mind now to check that out.

    Yep, ordered and paid over the phone. It would have been after you were there, just after midday I think. I read out the list over the phone, then he called back soon after with the price, very easy and efficient. Hopefully it all works out as planned and this can be a semi-regular sort of thing.
