Prices are a little on the high side but still in line with what I pay in my area. You're not going to see a big saving until you buy in bulk. LHBS has to make a living too or they go out of business, I dont think they are getting rich off selling home brew stuff.

Go with rebel brewer. I live about 2 hours away from them a d still have things shipped. I choose the fed ex route and things get to me overnight. Their prices are great and service is awesome. Good luck.

My LHBS is comparable in prices to online. They charge by the lb for grain along with by the 4 oz( costs a few pennys more per lb) I can buy a half oz of hops. The owners are awesome to deal with. My only complaint is their hours, I just wish they were open on Sundays and Mondays( the days I always seem to need something).

My not so lhbs is 75 min away. I use it to fill gaps and buy liquid yeast so It doesn't get shipped in this heat. My advice op is buy 5 or 6 batches worth of ingredients online to save on shipping and allow more flexibility in your brew schedule.

Not to revive an older thread but my LHBS works with us on AG recipes by ordering 55# in bulk. While it's not the BEST price in the world, a $1/lb price is completely affordable for my 2 Row. So I choose to buy that in bulk and pay a little more for the specialties. The only thing that kills me is $4/oz for hop pellets which are sometimes .5, .75 or .90 if not 1oz.

I don't mind paying higher for some things but $4/oz, or in most cases less, of pellet hops is just stupid.
