Have you actually asked if you LHBS does bulk rates? A lot of people just don't realize that a LHBS will sell a 55lb sack of 2-row for $40. They just assume the $1.80/lb on the 1lb bags scales.

most LHBS don't exactly have big signs pointing out that a 55lb bag is as cheap as 20lbs

It certainly does depend. I know that some LHBS will not sell grains any cheaper than ~2 lb. Some will not sell in bulk since they figure that you will just end up buying 50 lbs at full price from them anyway. Of course there are a lot of LHBS that simply do not understand that customers have choices, and will reward the stores that treat them right. My entire business is based on great prices, selection, and most importantly service.

I finally got around to forecasting my next 10 beers. I know recipes will be tweaked so I am going a little high on my estimates and any leftovers can be made into an experiment beer.

I am planning to make: Nut Brown, RIS, Tripel, Dubbel, IPA, Fruit Wheat, Rye, Irish Red, Oberon Clone, Xmas Spiced Ale, and Porter.

Here is my list, please let me know what you think.

MALTS (All numbers are in pounds)
Belgian Pils - 30
Biscuit - 2
Black Patent - 2
Cara Munich - 2
Carapils - 4
Chocolate - 4
Crystal 120 - 4
Crystal 20 - 5
Crystal 40 - 4
Crystal 60 - 4
Crystal 90 - 4
Honey - 2
Munich - 15
Flaked Oats - 2
Roasted Barley - 5
Rye - 9
Special B - 2
Victory - 2
White Wheat - 18

HOPS (All numbers are in ounces)
Cascade - 5
Centennial - 13
Goldings - 10
Hallertau - 12
Saaz - 6

Other (All numbers are in pounds)
Corn Sugar - 5
Rice Hulls - 5

Do you already have a bunch of Maris Otter and 2-Row Pale? I feel like you need more base malt to make all those beers.

makes sense.


Ditch the hops from wherever you're ordering and order a pound of each from hopsdirect. It'll be much cheaper.
