Default N. Country Malt 2-Row pricing?

I've seen folks here quote $27 frequently for a 55 lb. bag of 2-row at NCM, but I only see it on their catalog for $35 from Canada Malting Group. Am I missing something?

There are two areas on the site, I believe you are looking at the "homebrewers area". To really get the price down to $0.27 you need a bulk buy of 2000 lbs. There is a different part of the site, you have to call them and get a password to access the "pallet' rate pricing..

Call in the order and most likley you will get the cheaper price but you won't if you order it online.

If you look at the date of the catalog is '07...call prices change all the time.

The shipping by the pallet is way less than you'll pay by the sack. It also depends on where they are shipping it to.

I live in RI and was curious how often you guys buy bulk? I would be interested if you ever do another one anytime soon.

I called them last week because I was curious. If you buy a few sacks, they charge fedex ground. For 4 sacks to philly, it was around $100 or so for shipping, which makes it cost prohibitive. If you can take delivery of a pallet at a work location, it is much cheaper. To philly, it was around $125 total for shipping. Not sure how many sacks you can fit on a pallet, maybe 30-40? Regardless of how many sacks, shipping was the same price for the pallet. If I had a group in philly, I would consider trying to arrange a group buy.
