also, if there is a local microbrew or brew pub near you, check with them. i know my local HBS piggy-backs their grain orders w/ the microbrewery. so, they get a good variety of fresh grains on a regular basis. plus my HBS stays pretty busy, so there's good turn-over.
Sudster, my HBC is looking at North County Malt too to bulk order. Right now they use Austin HBS or DeFalco's. i would, i just don't have room to store bulk grains right now. sorry i can't help ya on that one.
