I pay $33, but I buy from an LHBS that is run by a local brewery. They don't mark up as much as your average place because they have lots of turnover.

About $30-40/bag here, but our club orders malt by the pallet so we're getting wholesale prices.

Shipping is becoming more and more a killer here, maybe I should take up farming. But land, water, malting.. Yea $78 sounds cheap for here.
Lucky we live Hawaii right?

I officially hate you.

$66 for a sack of Maris Otter at the LHBS

You buy that in bulk or just pull up and give "someone" cash for a bag?
