would anyone like to do a bulk grain purchase in Dayton, Ohio

I would like to purchase a palate from North Country Malt Supply.

shipping is the same whether we would buy 6 or 40 bags of grain

2 row is $36 a bag, maris otter $39-40 a bag

shipping $120

Reason: expand to show some pricing

I'm in Columbus but would be very interested and could drive down to pick stuff up. How many bags on a pallet? Let me check with some folks here and see what I can dig up for interest!

Id be in for a sack of each, but by the time I drive there to get it and pay for gas, I can get it at my LHBS for less.

$23 for gas to pick it up...

$41 here for 2 row
$55 here for Maris

Me? It is Great Fermentations in Indy.

Thier PER POUND prices are about 2.5x that though... which is rediculous IMHO

Thier sack prices are good though.

The sack price where I buy is @ $58 for 2 row and 78 for Marris otter. That is why I Thought about buying a years worth of grain @ once. That is when I stumbled acrossed North Country.

yeah i don't know WTF is up with greatfermentations 1lb pricing. I bought 150lbs of grain from them over winter for a VERY cheap price. Called up and ordered a few bags of something my LHBS didn't stock and got hit with the price when it got here. I was really set back that they would sell MO and rahr soo cheap by the back and then charge 2.30 for a lb of flaked barley?

OH YEAH... I think I paid nearly $2.60/lb for 60L!!!

But I can buy a sack of 2 row for $41? This is precisely why I have my home inventory of 20 malts in ProMash, so I dont run out, so I never have to go there otherwise.

Yep, Great Fermentations' grain prices are a little sketchy. The good news is that they have a really good selection for a LHBS and they have an annual grain sale in September that gets really crazy cheap - including 3 and 5 lb bags of specialty grains. I am planning on stocking up this September for all next year's grain.
