I guess you haven't been by Maltose for a long while.
A 50# to #55 sack of grain will run you $50 to $65 depending of the maltster (Fawcett, Rahr, Weyermann, Breiss, Dingeman's, Crisp, Munton's)
Specialty grains split into 1lb bags are $2/lb, but if you go into to the shop (or online) for a grain mix, the cost is $1.60/lb . . . and they will crush your grains at no charge. I believe they used to charge for crushing because they had to mill everything by hand. Now they have a motorized mill that will crush 20 pounds of grain in about 2 minutes. The only time they charge ($5) for crushing grains is if your grain bill is 45# or more, or if you're getting a full sack of grain crushed.
Certainly worth it to me from having to crush that much grain on my hand mill - both in time and effort.
