Default 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.

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

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.
