Default Cheapest on the Net

Since I'm always looking for the best value when it comes to brewing I thought I would make a thread just for the cheapest anything-brewing-related you can find on the net. Here is what I bring to the table (or have found from threads on this forum) :

Hops - http://www.hopsdirect.com They sell leaf, and pellet hops cheaper and fresher than any other place I have found. The downfall is the smallest they sell is 1lb quanities.

Vanilla Beans - http://www.arizonavanilla.com/ They ship fast and their product is very fresh. Look for their sales, they have them often and they are a great deal.

Burner (170,000 BTU) - Agri Supply Someone else found this, but its an amazing deal.

Anyone know where you can order specialty grain cheap?

Not necessarily all specialty grains, but www.northcountrymalt.com has great deals on bulk grain. Hops and cleansers too.

Dunno--I like a good bargain as much as the next cheap bastard, but I'm not quite to the sticky stage yet.

G & G is my LHBS. Nice to have them nearby.
A walk thru the store gives me new ideas.

It depends on how much you order, actually. I'd recommend getting with your local HB club and doing a group order. The more weight/bags of grain you order, the cheaper shipping is. Recently some brewing buddies and i placed an order and we had 19 total bags of grain and various odds and ends. It came out to about 8 bucks for each bag. So essentially you are getting a 55 lb. bag for $35. That means you are getting a pound of high quality Maris Otter or Golden Promise (or whatever else you like) for half of what HB stores sell it for.

Cannot beat that.
