Default Where to get caps in bulk??

I did a thread search and didn't find anything. I'm wondering who buys caps in really large quantities and where you find the best deals?? Thanks!

I bought a 3# bag from Austin Homebrew. It's like 640 caps for around 15 bucks.

use the drop down menu to go from 4.5oz to the 3# option.

I'm sure if you go to your LHBS they'll be able to sell you caps in bulk too....

Listermann's sells them by the lb. It comes out to about 1.4 cents each. You might get an even better price for very large quantities.

I'm surprised that one of the DIY'ers on this board hasn't figured out a way to make his own.

I think in some things, mass production still makes more sense even with middlemen and shipping cost.
But maybe someone will.
