there are a lot of good places, it depends on whether you are getting specialty grains or bulk grains.

try these for starters

austinhomebrew.com
brewmasterswarehouse.com
northerbrewer.com
midwestsupplies.com

I pickup sacks of basemalt at my LHBS. It's cost competitive with shipped grain in the 50-55 lb size.

There is no such thing as CHEAP malt online. I did find 100 lbs of british crystal and british brown for $45 once, (Ebay).

I don't think I'd want to buy bulk malt online. There is significant savings in driving to the LHBS (over an hour away) compared to paying for shipping. At least I can also shop for other things while I'm there and have it in under 3 hours.

I think I paid $40 for 50 lb. sacks of both Pale 2-row and Breiss Pilsner malt. That comes out to 80 cents per lb.

Yeah your best bet is likely to be finding a local homebrew supply place, brewery, maltster, etc. and asking about bulk prices for a sack. Ordering online you are never going to get as good a deal due to shipping costs.

My LHBS will sell sacks of 2-row for $40 plus I get a club discount there so it ends up being more like $38. There is no online store that is even remotely competitive with that price.

Yeah, I know about that deal. However, the last time I was out that way was on a Sunday, so even though I was driving right by the store it didn't matter. And, due to the gas and excessive drive time it's not worth a trip just for the grain.

my lhbs sells a 50 lb sack for $52, not too awesome.

If you go online for specialty grains you can save some $$. Shipping isn't a big deal with some of the retailers that have flat rate shipping (brewmasters warehouse, austin homebrew supply)
