Default Grain wholesalers?

I am wondering where to buy malt in 50 lb bags in the Philly area. Any connections?

There's any number of homebrew stores in Philly and Burbs. Keystone Homebrew has a location in Montgomeryville, and they RAWK!

They might rawk, but they also rape on full sack prices. I'd highly recommend trying to get in on a pallet group buy if possible.

Or plan a vaction to the Adairondacks and make a little side trip to North Country Malt Supply. That's what I did last summer. Or drive to Indiana and have your brother stop at Mid-Country (same people) outside Chicago on his way to the family reunion. That was this summer.

I'm thinking of hitting the Adairondacks again next year. Vacation and malt!

Exactly, I should have specified wholesale, not retail. Retailers charge a $1.40 a pound. I am looking to spend maybe $.65.

I would love to get in a pallet group purchase. I am in for up to 300 lbs. I don' really belong to any local groups to do this with though.

PJJ, I found the North Country website last night and they are close to what I need. Especially, if like you say, I could go there and pick it up. Alas I do not see that happening. I worked out shipping and its not too too bad. $20 and change per 50 lb pound sack (still adding $.40 per pound)

That was weird when you started talking about a brother in Indiana. I thought you were talking about my brother, who lives in Indiana, and I was wondering how you knew that about me.
