I wish my whole foods would sell bulk grain!

So I can get Belgian pilsner malt for about $1.07 per pound and I use if for my German and Belgian beers which is what I brew the most.
huh, got one on the other side of town, wonder if they sell grain too? EDIT: Nope

Thx
Great place, HUGE too... seem to have just about everything. Owner Adam is a really nice guy. Was only there to snag the grain since my family was waiting for me in the car and was running late for a lunch thing but I will definitely be buying from them more often. I typically go down that way more in the summer since we visit family in the area more often. Adam said they have done pretty well online and trying to be very reasonable with their pricing... running it with very little margins but they want to keep the costs down so everyone wins. Another guy was picking up his 2-3 sacks as well from the Cleveland area so think they are pulling a lot of people from my area as well. If your within an hour or so from there check em out. He did indicate that more sales will come from time to time and to pay attention to the site or their emailed newsletter.
