Honestly, I kind of like the lower grade stuff. It is structurally identical, and I don't mind the appearance. It looks better than the alternative (pink Owens Corning from Home Depot) and cheaper too ( for C Grade). I know it was a process flaw, and you guys are probably selling it at cost. I just think it would be nice to have a lower cost option as part of the ongoing product offering.
I'm sure it's not feasible though. You are not going to be able to talk Adams into intentionally manufacturing lower quality foam and selling it to you at half price.

It's too bad I still have 2/3 of a case of B grade and half a bundle of pink. She Who Must Be Obeyed won't let me get any more while I have that much on hand already. Maybe I can talk Mike into holding a case of C for me for 10 months until I need it. ;-)

Well, we'll have it as a part of the "ongoing product offering" for some time, based on how much we got, and how fast it is selling. I'm gratified that there are others like you, Kieth, who find it fine to work with and are buying it, as I didn't really want to insulate the barn with it if no one bought any!

As I have said, and hopefully demonstrated on the Spitfire, it builds just fine, and if you aren't concerned about finish, or are going to sand curves and/or cover it with something no one will ever know the difference.
