Some people order from sites that don't give them flat rate shipping. Certain locations are more expensive to ship to. Thus if they are in an expensive location 50# sack could be a better deal.

Well worth the hassle in m opinion. For example, I bought 2row, superior pale malt, maris otter, munich, pilsner and C40 (8 bags total). We had more expensive shipping because it was delivered to residence, so I averaged $35 per bag (~$280 for 8 bags). If I bought from 50#, all the types I did on my recent bulk order, but instead from 50# it would have cost (~$535 that includes the $25 off).

Gotcha - I thought you just meant 50# only. But you meant pricing between various online sellers. Thanks for the clarification

My LHBS has american 2row pale 50# for $46.. seems like a good deal. Right now I'm buying the 5# bags for 5.50 from them. The store is about 3 minutes from my house.

Steinbarts in Portland just had a sale on Malteurop 2 row at $27
for a 50 lb bag. I walked out with 4 bags and should have bought more.

Since posting in this thread 20 months age I've discovered I can locally buy 50 lb sacks of great western 2-row for $27 out the door. Last time I restocked I picked up a sack of german munich malt for $35, too.
