Group or Homebrew Club Buy Tip

Midwest Supplies’ current free shipping sale with mill purchase provides an interesting opportunity to stock up or purchase some heavier items that are typically expensive to ship.  Now may be a good time to order a club or group purchase to take advantage of this free shipping loophole of sorts.

An example.  The pictured 6.5 gallon glass carboy is selling for $39.99.  That’s a great deal.  Shipping, for me, is $18.35, or nearly 46% of the cost of the item itself.  Shipping brings it up to $58.34.  If you purchase a Captain Crush Grain Mill - First Looks Post - that shipping price goes away.  Use the grain mill as a club mill, share it, or maybe you want one of these puppies for yourself.  Other heavy items include recipe kits and bottles.  With just a few exceptions, most notably bulk grain, nearly everything qualifies.
