www.fiftypoundsack.com - cheap bulk grain
 
Has anyone heard of these guys? I saw an add in BYO magazine and looked them up. Looks like they have free shipping in the USA and an extra 10% off listed prices with a coupon code (F8SMY91NS7JCC) in honor of their grand opening on 12/1. Here are a couple of examples of their pricing.

Rahr 2 row - $55 per 50lb bag shipped (plus a possible another 10% off).
Fawcett Maris Otter - $69 per 55lb bag shipped (plus a possible another 10% off)

I notice that they have no address or contact number listed on their website, so that kinda turns me off trying them.

I saw the ad in BYO this weekend, and wondered about it. Not great prices, but with the free shipping you'd come out ahead unless you bought the malt locally.

So who has the best bulk price's. and Who is a trusted site to order from? for grains.

I have never really researched buying grain in Bulk before, but my LHBS quoted me recently a price of 48$ for a 50Lb bag of 2-row and I'm sure thats after he put his markup on it

That's a little expensive - much better to ask your LHBS to add a sack to their next order for you and keep your money in local hands.

If you have a LHBS, then by all means shop there. The closed shop to me is 100+ miles away. I try to buy in bulk there when I can, but I've ordered the occasional 50 lb sack and overall these prices are decent.

That's on par with what I get at the LHBS, but I don't have to wait for/pay for shipping.

That's retail in the Detroit area. Our last Michigan HBT bulk buy we paid 28 plus another 6 for shipping for 55#.

Oh the LHBS is in FB, there's also one in Ester, but it is unreliable. I live on the Fairbanks side of NP and rarely go into the town itself, not much reason to.
