Where can I buy 50lb sacks of grain?
 
I know there is http://www.fiftypoundsack.com/, but is there another similar site? Also, where do people buy pallets from for home brew group buys?

If you live near a Northern Brewer location they offer sacks at pretty reasonable prices. I haven't compared their shipping to 50lbsack yet, though. I've also heard of people buying sacks from their local brewpub- base grain mostly.
Edit: looks like shipping pretty much ruins it for NB.

Look at the group buy section. Maybe someone close is setting one up. I've also bought 5 10lb packs from morebeer and combining with other stuff got their free shipping.

austinhomebrew has 40lb sacks and cheap shipping.

its not as bulk as 50lbs but still not bad.

Try your LHBS. Learn to Brew is my local shop who also sells online - prices comparable to NB and local pickup. Most brew shops will have a better deal on full sacks than their per/lb price.

Cornykeg.com sells all of their grain for decent prices and only charges 7.99 for shipping. I ordered 4 50 lbs sacks and it only cost me 7.99 shipping

I live in Atlanta if that helps. I know Brewmasters warehouse is here. Have you guys dealt with them?

Since you're in Atlanta, buy from one of the stores there - I 'm pretty sure that will be your best bet.

+1 My LHBS sells sacks of grain at 33% off and even allows me to bring it back and have it crushed whenever I need it. Picked up 55 lbs of Munich and 55 lbs of Pilsner for $137.50.
