Last time, I bought a 55# bag of 2-row from the LHBS, but I'd like to get a better deal than that. Anyone doing group buys in CT?

Thanks

We do but won't need any until early next year!

Good questions all. Maybe Poobah can point the way while I engage in some research.

I have to dig out the paperwork but it's like $35-$40 a bag from North Country Malt.

If you guys can move some grain to the eastern part of the state, it appears 1 or 2 of you are, I'd be interested even though I'm in RI.
