Default Sacks of grains? Shipping cost?

Anyone order sacks of grain? What's the shipping cost on a 50lb sack? And where do you order from?

I usually buy from my LBS. As far as cost to ship, well that entirely depends on the dealer you buy from. Most flat-rate places won't charge a flat rate because the cost exceeds the contract with the shipper. Another factor is the distance from the shipper. I think it would run anywhere from 20-30 dollars based on what I have read.

I was looking at a few different sources, 50 Pound Sack had their shipping listed as free, BMW had theirs listed for $6.99, NB listed their for $36.76 (holy s***), so it can vary greatly depending on where you buy it.

F H Steinbart is only $6 in gas from my house (round trip), lucky for me I don't have to pay for that. Sorry, hope you find a good price.

keep an eye out for a group buy in your area. If the delivery is close you can save a bundle.

Cool thanks guy. Yeah my local homebrew store is 27 miles away. 54 mile trip. It's a little much. Makes me want to start my own store.
