Default North West Indiana bulk grain?

I live in NW indiana and wondering if anyone knows of a good place to buy bulk grain for a decent price? Anything I have found close is to expensive. Anything online the shipping is crazy. Hoping that I am over looking a gem out there.

locally I can get 50# for $70 and over 2hrs is hard to justify. Looking for something around an hour to 90min at the most. Thanks for the info. If I ever find myself heading in that direction I will definitly stop and get 50#.

Depending on where you are located in NW Indiana, mid country malt probably isn't too far from you. Only downside is that they aren't open on weekends.

This is the best place to go. I've ordered from here before. Most expensive bag was approx $39. You'll need to call ahead and place your order the day before or morning of. Golden Promise & Marris Otter are about $38-$39 each, Pilsner malt is $36, I think domestic two-row is $34.

It's a small warehouse front in the middle of an industrial park. Super easy and great.

Finally got over to midcountry and picked up 55# of maris otter. I was a little disapointed that they don't sell hops. I had a pound of amarillo in my sights.

Guess I have to find them somewhere else.

Thanks for the suggestion, the place was very easy to get to and took about 55min to get to so not to bad.
