There is actually a malter about 15 minutes north of me. I've been trying to track down their info to maybe arrange a bulk order for any HBT'ers in my area (not that I think there are many).

I'm not sure what all they carry but I know the wheat malt they have is actually Weyerman.

Well mine is only $7 off, and I bet that would be made up for in the shipping, but yes they do ship... not sure how much internet business they get though.

My guy needs me to buy from him. He was talking to the guy from Paddockwood and the bulk ordering by clubs is driving the profits out of these guys carrying stock. My guy was also speculating that he could maybe make more money by letting the grains go and adding more of his other stock (he sells role playing game stuff). I reassured him that I would drop my plans of buying in bulk and continue to buy from him when he told me that I could buy sacks for $45. For me it's win - win, but just keep in mind that if you don't support your local guy, you may just lose him.

paid $40 for 50lb 2-row, 55lb pils and 55lb wheat. $33 is a good price!

That's pretty unlikely given that he's a winemaking shop primarily (don't know what it's like out there, but wine on premises places out here seem to be a license to print money). That said I buy everything I can from him just for that very reason you mentioned. I just can't stomach $60 for 25KG of grain.

My lhbs doesn't stock the sacks, but it'll be in with the next shipment of supplies he receives. Also his 10lb prices are $14.40 so it's a much better deal in bulk.

My mistake brad, I misread what you wrote. I was comparing your 40 minute drive to my 90 minute drive and thinking we were getting the same products. If I were in your shoes I'd do the same. I'm very fortunate to have a good AG HBS even 90 minutes away. We get to the city a couple of times a month so I usually have a big bag of goodness in the keezer waiting to be mashed.

My guy is heavy on the wine stuff too. I personally only brew the occassional wine for SWMBO and that's just from a kit. I just can't get as worked up over wine as I do for beer. I honestly don't know if there are any brew on premises in Winnipeg. It's really not something I'm interested in. I have a brew on premises right here at home. Works for me.

It happens, no worries. I guess I won't complain about having to drive only 40 minutes now.

Regular price on 50 lbs of Schreier 2-row is $32. If you buy two sacks it's $30 per bag.

This month the LHBS is having a sale to clear out inventory $25 per sack. Time to pick up another.

Grain prices are to go up just like hops, so we all might want to stock up!
