I live near the Riverside MoreBeer. They have good prices on bulk grain. I am interested in buying some base malt for myself and maybe splitting a bag of specialty malt of anyone is interested.

I am willing to do some of the leg work, as in pick up and partial delivery.

Lets make something happen with this or a so cal bulk/group buy of some sort.

I'm told they have military discounts, up to 10%. Can anyone verify this?

Count me for a few bags of base malt, maybe some MO too. What specialty malt were you thinking of? I'm in SD but can easily make it up your way during a weekend.

I believe so, except for a possible discount for military if you show up in person. Plus freight on 50lbs of grain isn't the cheapest.

For bulk, the LHBS in El Cajon - All About Brewing - will probably be close to More Beer. Last time I spoke with the owner, Jim, he said it just depended on whatever the current prices were from the supplier. At that time some of the grains I was looking at were maybe a little bit more expensive ( a few dollars), but it would be worth it to not have to drive to Riverside and back - time and gas.

I called AAB in El Cajon, 50lb of GW 2-row is $43, and MO is $60.

Are you guys looking to buy hops or grain right now? I'm down for a hop buy, I'd go in for the grain but I don't have a mill so it wouldn't make sense for me at the moment.

Edit: If you guys are still shopping around for good prices, next time I am at Best Damn Homebrew Shop I'll explain to them whats going on. They are a pretty new spot so they might not have the hookup as far as lower prices go but its worth a shot. Both people I have met working there are all really cool and seem to know their stuff, so its worth a try.

I'm looking for grain, maybe 5-6bags if the price is right. I get my hops from hopsdirect.com so i'm good for a while.

I would split a bag of Crystal 15 or Crystal 40. If anyone is interested possibly both.
