MoreBeer offers free shipping on some sizes of their DME.

There 12 pound buckets qualify.

If your order adds up to more than $60.00, the S&H is free.

It figures out to be about $2.30 per pound, delivered.

That's for liquid malt extract not dried, but that's the route I go for PM brews. There stuff is really fresh.

I stand corrected!

Man!...I was stone cold sober when I bookmarked those pages, too!

I've yet to place an order with MoreBeer.

I was working up a source on bulk DME, also.

Guess I'll have to start all over.

Just called them at 518-298-2300 and confirmed Breiss Pale DME 50# for $98 plus shipping. That's awesome! I pay $17/3# at my closest store Although I can drive another 15 min and get it for $12. Still looking at 50# and w/ the money I save I may buy a vacuum sealer to break it up.

Not trying sound like a jerk so don't take this that way. But why do people come into the extract section and talk about going AG? This section exists separate from the All-Grain section for a reason.

"Christian," I'm an extract brewer, but I'm not sure what was said earlier about AG is off-topic. The individuals who brought it up as an alternative weren't trying to change the subject TO AG, and once the individuals explained why they couldn't, that was that. I see no reason for contention here

And there is no contention meant, please re-read my post. My question is off topic as it does not deal with the original one. My question is just that, a question. I am just baffled by how many times here in the extract section there are always people who post saying that they are AG brewers and that everyone should go AG. Me personally i started out AG but prefer extracts and partials, there is a reason why there are different sections on the board. So my original question still stands, "why do people come into the extract section and talk about going AG?"

I've run into this a few times looking for clone recipes. The all grain brewer's reply is a post with a link for an all grain recipe in an extract forum thread. Thanks! A extract version was what I was looking for, they could just post an extract conversion recipe , give a link to beersmith, or just not post at all. I am not sure if they think they are really helping or if they are just aggresively trying to convert everyone to all grain.
It's an EXTRACT forum!

Hi All,
I am an extract brewer. That's why I am surfing this forum.
I am interested in saving money. That's why I clicked on this thread.
And yes I am a noob. That's why I brew with extract.
So, if someone suggests a way for an extract brewer to save money is to
use grain then it would seem to be on topic.
I'm not trying to stir up trouble. It is just that I wouldn't know about that aspect of brewing if it was not mentioned in the forums that I frequent.
I will allways be brewing with extract because it is fast and easy.
I am going to try all grain or partial grain in order to save money.
Again, I'm not trying to start a controversy. I'm just saying that maybe
a suggestion to use grain may be an attempt to help extract brewers,
not to change them.
Baru

I just found this while doing a surf today. I don't know about you guys, but this is about as good as it gets. I don't know how expensive the shipping is, or what the minimum is for this, but $2.25/lb for Breiss DME is the best I've seen, other than the 50# orders from the place in Chicago.
