The registered contact for their domain name is in Tennessee, for what it is worth. Additionally, his contact information is avaiable through a domain lookup service, such as BetterWhoIs.

I won't post it here, in the name of proper netiquette, though.

Some grains come in 50lb and some in 55lb.

I just started to buy in bulk, and the best I could find locally was $53.50/50lb of 2 row and no bulk option on much else, so $2-3/lb on the rest.

I decided to order from Missouri Malt Supply and buy enough that it was worth making the drive from KC to St. Louis. All together I ordered 525lbs, and at their price vs the LHBS, I will still save several hundred dollars even after the cost of gas.

That site mainbrew.com has some serious prices. 30 for a sack of 2 row 45 for pilsner and 49 for MO and GP. And 1.50 a lb for any specialty malt. That sounds pretty good. Probably get sodomized on shipping though.

Considering shipping is built into that price, it's not bad at all IMO.

Just in case anyone missed this comment, no worries about being a reputable source.

Great Western here in Vancouver, Wa is going through some additions and will also be remodeling part of the plant in the next couple of years due to a rail line expansion. As a result they had decided to expand their offerings to hops, spices, and candied sugars. They have added a new "bagged grain contact" to their list of contacts and I'm waiting to hear back from them to see if they will be selling direct to the public now (at least locally to start). The LHBS is at $34.50 for a 50# bag of GW 2row currently.

The Malteurop 2 row is the only one cheaper than what I'm paying at my LHBS. Has anyone used this before?

No, but I read a thread on it on ProBrewer and they seemed to like it.
