50 lb sack shipped for $60? Order 'em from morebeer in 10 lb increments and it's $1.04/lb shipped.

5 lb increments, which are pretty damned convenient for me!

That's before shipping. Read the details on the free shipping.

MoreSaver!™ Shipping - Free shipping on most orders over $59.00, orders ship out of our doors in 2-4 Business days.

If you buy 12, it might qualify. I'm guessing that they will catch on that you are not buying the 50 pound bag which does not have free shipping. It's $50.95 in shipping charges for a 50 pound bag, plus the $32.50 for the grain itself.

Now you might add on a few to another order to get your free shipping but we are trying to look at strictly grain prices and I think in 50-55 pound sizes.

No I didn't. I was actually comparing Rahr 2-Row across both sources. He brought up the Maltteurop 2-Row which is the cheapest grain on their site and the only thing they sell under $60.

If you buy $59 worth of grain in 5lb increments from B3 they will ship it for free.

Look, I'm not here to criticize anyone. People can sell for whatever they want and people can buy or not buy. It's a free country. My only point is that if someone is going to start a business to exclusively sell bulk grains over the internet, you'd think they'd find a way to make it cheaper than just buying by the pound from all of the other internet homebrew stores. Otherwise it makes no sense, it's like going to Costco and finding the same unit prices as the local supermarket just in bigger packages.

You're splitting hairs here.

He has given you a source for $1.04/lb, shipped to your door, base grain.

Yes, you have to buy 60# of it to get the free shipping, but you're already talking about buying 55#, so what's 5# more?

And they don't have any clause that says "limit X per customer" so if they want to break it down into 5# bags and sell it to me for cheaper than buying a while 55# bag, then.... well... that's their issue and not mine.

I might have a very good reason for buying it in 5# bags. Like... maybe I have no vacuum sealer and want to be able to use this grain over the course of a year. A 55# sack is more expensive and more likely to stale on me than 60# packed up in 5# bricks.
