Default Cheap Bulk Grain in Georgia...Does it exist??

Where can I find the cheapest 55lb sack of 2 row in north Ga?? I wanting to buy bulk but shipping prices are ridiculous. I know I can buy it @ "Brewmasters Warehouse" and "Just brew It" but I'm paying their mark-up. If that's what I have to do, I will but I'm such a cheap ass I thought I'd throw it out there and see what else there was, if anything. Thanks.

I'd like to hear of a place as well. I'm in south georgia but go to the atlanta area frequently. I was gonna check Brewmasters prices this trip up.
I'm paying like ~$50-65 a sack right now (Rahr-weyermann/crisp)

I'm in north ga also. try beer necessities in Alpharetta I know they sell grains but not for sure if they sell in bulk. plus they have reasonable prices unlike the store in Gainesville.


yes they sell in bulk don't know if it's cheaper than what you are paying.

Resourceful brewers will find a better way. Look to your local microbrewerys.

Or stop being so cheap, pay a few bucks for mark up and support your local economy and local home brew store, then maybe you'll help keep someone in business...

My LHBS can suck it. Pitiful stock, sells out of date dry yeast and old precrushed grain, his kits are over priced and his recipes are poor at best. Also he sells hops at $4 an oz. I've tried to get him to work on it, but to no avail. The next closest LHBS is an hour away and I don't like the way he stores his products either (I am picky). Stop being presumptuous and support savvy brewers.
The micro thing is a good idea, I suppose I could shoot some emails.

yeah the last time I went to the closest home brew store to me ( 45 min drive ) he charged me $13 for a hydrometer never again. he charges nearly $40 for brewers best kits and he wonders why I go to Atlanta or order off the net.

True, I guess I'm for the most part blessed with a good LHBS.

I love this idea and I'll ask anybody anything but how would you even approach that. I would think you'd have to get in on a pallett to even make it worth their wild and I just don't know that many other brewers or need that much grain.

True, I'm unsure how much 'spare' grain a brewery carries as well. I feel like beyond pilot supplies most of the useful inventory is going into beer that has been planned for. Getting them to order spare pallets from country malt group or somesuch (since they have an account presumably)seems like a valid option.
Perhaps we could find a brewery to help us with a group buy? I'd throw in on sacks of 2row/munich/MO/Vienna/pils/wheat if the price is right.
