You could try morebeer.com. They have free shipping on orders over $50.00. Their grain prices are slightly higher, but free shipping is nice.

It's generally understood that free shipping means higher prices on stuff, which is true in most circumstances. When I purchase brewing ingredients and supplies I generally sick with morebeer.com, but there have been cases where northernbrewer was most affordable.

No free shipping from more beer on 50 lb sacks of grain unfortunately. LHBS is the way to go.

Look into a local bulk group buy perhaps? Depending on the resource and product, you'll run $30-40 a sack, including shipping. Buy enough for a year.

This, I did it in October and still have something like 200 pounds waiting to be beer. Paid around $37 for a bag of 2-row pale. A group buy is also a great place to meet with other local brewers, the folks who have done the last couple buys around here have arranged a place to hang out and swap beers after the pickup. Lots of fun!

It's $37 for $50 of two row at the LHBS here. Well 40 miles away local, but that's as local as I get unless I want to deal with idiots that charge way to much. 2 roy is over $3 a pound there!

I think malted Red Wheat was only $41, I'm about to get 50# of both and a bunch of specialties too. I just have to build my mill first!

i order though morebeer. as stated above they have free shipping for over $60. you can get 10 lb bags that qualify for free shipping, though they also have 50 lb bags, but those don't. i checked the prices and it's usually cheaper to go with five 10 lb bags of base grain to get the free shipping. not sure how that works but seems pretty sweet. their free shipping options does take longer, usually about a week to process, but it's free. probably one of your better options if you don't have a LHBS. only thing i don't like about morebeer is their hop selection is a little limited and sometimes overpriced.

Join a brew club if you can. Access to group buys and you will make some great friends.
