I've been buying 55# bags of base grain from LHBS ever since I switched to all grain. It costs around $65 for a 55# bag of Pale Ale Malt, or around $1.18 per LB.
I was wondering who people are using for online bulk grain purchasing. My LHBS isn't really a brew store, and there are no other suppliers within a reasonable drive from where I am (Columbia, MO). Also, they only sell Pale Ale, Wheat and Pilsner, and I would like to branch out and try some Vienna or Maris Otter.
I've been looking at the stickied post of recommended online suppliers, and the prices still seem high, and the available combination of amount (40#, 50#, 55#) and shipping cost ($8-$50) seems to vary wildly. I've also tried searching, and I keep getting the same few bulk grain threads from years ago.
