I pick mine up from rahr malting. They're about an hour and a half drive away and charge $15 for 55# of 2-row and $25 for 55# of wheat malt.

That's correct. I didn't get charged tax. I forgot about that.

LHBS
$.99/lb crushed
Huge selection, they are actually the back half of a brew Pub, so the consistency seems to be there

www.pointbrewsupply.com

They treat me great. I drive up there when I can, but when I can't shipping isn't bad. I just ordered a 50# sack of cracked wheat, a few specialty grains, some hops, and a vial of yeast. Under $50 including shipping. I am a loyal customer of thiers.

Some places have set shipping costs. Austinhomebrew is $5.99, and morebeer is free if you buy more that $60 worth of stuff. So, the weight of the grains doesnt come into play.

Yeah, I found them, too. I can get a pallet of up to 40 sacks (2200#!!) shipped for a flat rate of $90. Prices are really good, too, but I'd like to find some other brewers in the area to share the shipping with just to lower the cost even more.

2,200 pounds of two-row. Man, that's a serious amount of beer. Like 1,100 gallons if you figure that a five gallon batch uses about 10 pounds of 2-row.
