The folks at A&M Wine Supply in Washington, PA are organizing another bulk grain buy. You can buy 50-55 lb sacks of many base and specialty grains.  A&M had previously organized one a couple of years ago, and we had excellent particpation from TRASH.  I've attached the pricelist for this bulk buy to this email.

Order by contacting A&M either by phone or in person. 
Orders must be pre-paid.  Note that there's a $5 charge (per order) if you use a credit card.  
Order delivery is anticpated for mid-February, and A&S will contact you when it comes in.
February 28 is the drop-dead date for pickup.
Orders are for whole sacks only.  We are welcome to split sacks amongst ourselves, but A&M will not split them for us.
