That's a hefty brew! Have you looked into the quantities/costs of the sorghum and rice? I'm asking just because I've generally seen sorghum in 6 lb units...if that's the case you'd have to buy a whole 2nd jug...Simply for that reason, I try to base my recipes around those sizes, so I either use an even amount or I plan multiple batches that all add up to using 6 lbs.

Actually dorklord, you've mentioned that before but I don't think I fully caught it until now. Is it your LHBS offering 6lb sizes? Since Brewcraftusa sells theirs as 7 pound jars to retailers. One of my local stores sells them as a 7 pound . (homebrewing.org), and I'm going to check with them about interest in the tapioca syrup too.

Sheesh $60 seems steep. Makes me think how much I'm spending on my GF brews. I've found that the rice syrup is usually my most expensive purchase from the local health stores.

I was just discussing the same thing last night with my wife. Rice syrup or the extract solids I can get online, either way comes out to around 6 bucks a pound. That's the primary reason I've only ever used 1 lb of it in any of my beers. At 2.5 bucks a pound the sorghum costs is easier to swallow. (Pun intended).

That's what has held me back, but I'm looking at annapolis homebrew and their Brown rice syrup price is the same as their sorghum at 9.29/ 3lb. They have flat rate shipping so if i can get a big enough order together it'll save me a bunch.

Holy crap they've got DRY sorghum extract!

That price isn't too bad, I wonder if I can convince any not-so-local HBS to order some of that from Breiss (so I can avoid 8 bucks shipping...)

I've ordered from annapolis. I have an IPA in the primary right now that used 3 lbs of BRS and 1.5 lbs or dry sorghum extract (3 gallon batch). I should check on it today and decide if I'm dry hopping or if it's going right to the keg.
