GF is having its great grain sale. Here are the bulk prices on sacks of various base malts:

Rahr 2-Row (50lbs) $36
Maris Otter (55lbs) $62
Pilsen (55lbs) $55
Munich (55lbs) $63
Wheat (50lbs) $36
Golden Promise (55lbs) $57

Here is the deal...

I can use a sack of Rahr 2 row. I am alaready splitting a sack of MO with Brian.

Id love to be able to split up a sack of Pilsen, Munich, GP and Wheat with a few fellow brewers at these prices! Id like to take 10-15 pounds of each.

Really, GF has decent sale prices on thier specialty grains as well. (5lb) sacks

for those prices, I'd be willing to jump in for something despite of the drive. I'm getting 2-row for 55 and MO, pilsner and such for 70 something now.

Out of curiosity, is GF a malster or lhbs?

I can only think of North and Mid country malt in the area.

I'd be willing to split any/all of those you listed plus get a sack of 2-row. Where is the pilsen from?

It is our LHBS, thier annual grain sale

The pilsen is Castle, you can get Weyerman for $62 for a 55 pound sack.

If there arent many resonses here, I may pick up sacks of each, and then sell quantities to area brewers who want it later.

Is the Wheat price for the Briess White? I'll split a bag of the Weyermann Wheat, that of course would double the cost. I've had better results in terms of flavor and mouthfeel with the Weyermann.

Also if anyone is interested in splitting another bag of Marris Otter, I'd be interested.

Let me know what you do. I'm actually running pretty low, so I could use it soon.

I might be convinced to go in on a bag of Munich also, Rob, I'd like 10-15lbs. If we can get a third guy...

Weyerman wheat is $62 for 55 pounds, I would not be against getting that.

I am down for buying sacks of:

Rahr 2-Row (50lbs) $36
Pilsen (55lbs) $55
Munich (55lbs) $63
Weyerman Wheat (55lbs) $62
Golden Promise (55lbs) $57

This seems REALLY unorganized, so does anyone want to at least split these sacks down the middle?

Munich and Wheat, I wouldnt mind splitting in thirds.

You may want to check out these guys in Chicago:
ShopOnline

Our club did a buy from there. Grain is by the Bag. No partial bags. But your order can be as small as one bag.
