Club Update: Escambia Bay Brewers

I am leaving for the South Florida & the Keys tomorrow and will not be back till the 15th or so. Jim Martin, Rex and Gary have agreed to be at my shop this Saturday between 11:00am and 1:00pm to dispense grain orders for those that need their grain before I get back. That’s a 2 hour window so don’t be late or you’ll be out of luck. I’ll send out the pricing tomorrow when I get the grain so you can be ready when you pick it up. If you don’t have a check I can’t say if there will be any change available. Checks should be made out to EBH.

Urgent…..We have an opportunity to order grain right away if we get the order in by he weekend. Hal will be out of town so he asked me to coordinate the order/pickup. I will be out of town from March 3rd or 4th till the 14th so the window for ordering is short and the window for pickup will be even shorter (if you want it before the 14th).

I will take orders for FULL bags only and orders must be in before this Saturday at noon. If you want to split a bag find someone and go in with them but only one of you should order and pick it up. Send the orders by email to me.

As of this date all payment for grain will have to be made by check payable to EBH.

Let me know if this is a problem for any of you. So far these are the orders I have received for grain. This will be the last reminder to order grain so respond immediately if you want me to add to the order below. The price of grain is less than half of that available on the Internet so take advantage of the deal. Those that ordered make sure your order is reflected correctly below and let me know if it needs to be changed. There are some smaller quantities of grain (partial bags) available from among the membership and they are……

* Grain available in less than full bag quantities
* Honey malt
* Crystal 60
* Munich 10L
* Vienna malt
* Carapills
* Aromatic
* Victory
