Perfect Brewing Supply in Libertyville. I just checked their prices (last time I was in were were talking about the upcoming grain price increase) and their prices are now 42-45 for a sack of Rahr base malts. Despite what the website inventory lists as a somewhat limited selection "by the sack", you can call ahead and get just about anything they carry in bulk as long as they have enough on hand to make it to their next delivery schedule.

I'm way up in the NW Corner. We do have a Convenience store that carries some BASIC stuff like if i need a sanitizer,dry yeast, one step cleaner,etc in a pinch and they have a few extract kits, that have prolly been setting there for 2 years. But that does me no good since i brew all grain lol.

Yeah, I go here too. They just opened a new warehouse and it's pretty sweet. Great prices and service.

Damn, just went to order a 55lb sack of Maris Otter to find the coupon code expired! I totally forgot it expired at the end of January.

double whammy on you, actually.

Not only did the coupon expire, but the price of the grain also went up (Crisp MO was originally listed at $72, and now it's $79).

That's a little disappointing.

They had stated that the delay in opening was so that they could work out some new suppliers and offer a bigger selection and lower prices.

It's open. Selection unchanged. Prices increased.

Indeed. Getting a quote from my LHBS instead. Should have struck while the iron was hot.

i love the guys at Rebel. Those guys are my LHBS, so there isn't shipping on anything I buy, so that makes things cheaper already. Tyler up there sent me an email the other day when i asked about bulk grain buying, he gave me the fiftypoundsack website. He said that a little has to be added to it to cover shipping, but if i was picking it up it would be even cheaper. If you live in the middle tennessee area, you really cant go wrong there.
