Can you post that source. My club frequently does club buys and usually sends someone up to LA/Riverside/Pomona (it's all the same to us) to pick up.
That's a great price!

I got my 55lb sack of pilsen for about $25. I also got 55lb sacks of munich and wheat malt for about the same price.

I'm not sure what all they carry but I know the wheat malt they have is actually Weyerman.
Hey Bradsul, are you talking about Sleeman? Where's this 40-minute drive HBS you go to?

No, not Sleeman, though they do their own malting. I can't remember the name of it except that it didn't include 'malt' which makes it tough to search for.

I use Brewtime in Hamilton.

I buy from a local brewery and I am able to get bags at around $20. I can also get hops extremely cheap, but limited on varieties. Everything else I get from my LHBS. I used to buy it all from him but $20 compared to $55 is a no brainer.

Cheers

My local HBS which is also a mail order/internet supplier, charges I think $53/bag for 50 pounds of American 2 row! Not really a great price. But shipping from the bigger guys like AHS or NB or Midwest will come out to about the same. I guess I can relate, real estate/overhead here is astronomical compared to those places.

I have seen numerous posts about prices going up on both grain and hops. I may have missed something but why is this? Is it because of the drought or does it always go up in the winter.

A big part of it is that farmers have been converting their acreage from barley production to corn production, to feed the need for ethanol.
