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.
Did you find anything out?

Best Damm Homebrew has alright prices on 50lb bags. If you're in the north county Mother Earth Brewing Company has the best prices around as they buy in bigger quantity than anyone.

What hops are you looking to get? I just recently bought 5-6lbs and have some spare as some of the guys i went in with flaked out on me. From Hopsdirect and freshhops.

Good call outside, was just going to mention Mother Earth. They have the 10% off for military and AHA members, not to mention about 30-40 different grains, equipment and some very awesome brews. They recently just did a benefit brew where a portion of the sales went to families of the marine helicopter crash a few weeks back. I do not get my stuff from anywhere else. I am pretty sure if we wanted to get a group buy together, they would get it shipped with their next order.

I am interested in getting a group buy together for at least some hops if anyone else is interested.

I'm at the bottom of my last fifty pound bag of Briess light DME. It came from Hydrobrew in Oceanside.

I'm low on cash but need to keep the pipeline full - are there any brewers who want to go in on a bag?

Thanks
Norman

Do you happen to know any bulk grain prices off the top of your head?

I've done that before, but Riverside is really too far away for most San Diego residents to make the trip cost-effective. There are plenty of LHBS around, but I don't know if any of them can get fantastic bulk pricing that others in the US can get by going direct.

The closest I've come is All About Brewing in El Cajon. Their bulk prices are a little higher than BBB, but I also don't have to drive 4 hours + gas, so it's probably a net savings.
