I am in Toronto and I usually pay $55 Cad for a sack of Maris Otter Malt from the UK and 48 for Weyerman Pilsener malt from Germany. The domestic stuff is even cheaper.

Does anyone have an updated 2009 pdf catalog?
I'm seeing $35.89 for (2060) Canadian 2 row pale malt.

Is the price dropped to $27 now?

I may be making a trip to mid-county Friday, a short hop to I-80, then east to mid county, then another 15 minutes or so east to three floyds!

YES it is $27 now for 55 pounds. I dont have the 2009, but that seemed like the only big diff. in 2009 over 2008.

I dont need a lesson on how to make a fair comparison form you.

and why do I need to keep a home brew store open? thats the owners job not mine, if the store is good it should do fine, if it sucks then why should it not close. my lhbs is great and I buy lots of stuff there, but this hobby is about makeing beer, not makeing sure my lhbs is living large.

WOW!!!!

That seems to be the case in the west. Don't know why. Over here in the midwest and east, they sell directly to anyone and charge tax. All you have to do is call at least a day ahead of time with what you want.

I did not miss the point , I just think you rant has no place in this thread.
your banter would be better in the vendor forum, unless you have info on finding the best price on bulk grain.
And by all acounts that place is country malt group.

I think you did miss the point . This is a topic of buying in bulk and some people are dragging in their local brew shop prices. That is what Forrest was saying he didn't say anything about not buying in bulk.

I'll side step the buy from LHBS argument... I slant my yeast, buy grain in bulk, and buy hops in bulk, yet I still manage to drop $100 (or more) a month at Austin Homebrew between yeast, specialty grains, equipment, etc.

A good and often over-looked source for base grain is your local brew pub or micro. They buy lots of malt so they should be willing to sell you a bag at their cost, esp. if you provide occasional homebrews for the brewer. I don't like the Canadian 2-row from Mid Country (problems with my Barley Crusher) we get in the bulk buy so I may try this next time around.

But Austin Homebrew has that $6.99 flat rate shipping so imo you do have to compare because it costs me ~$30 to have one 55# sack shipped to me from Country Malt Group. So I have to compare the shipped price (the price that really matters to me).

But it is true that you can't really compare their bulk grain prices in a vacuum. Austin Homebrew just isn't about 'bulk' at all, even though there is a section on their site labeled...BULK GRAIN. Their 'bulk' base grain comes in 40# bags...you can't even get an original 55# sack (that alone can be a dealkiller). It's not really 'bulk' even though they call it that on the site.
