There is a LHBS here in Portland that you can buy a "virtual bag of grain". What you do is pay the going rate for a sack of grain and then they just record how much you get until you have used up the 50 lbs. That way the "sack" is always fresh. Seems like a cool concept. Great if you don't have a lot of storage like me.

Reason: typo

I love Portland. Great idea. Hope it catches on!

I asked the LHBS here in New Orleans about buying a "virtual bag" and he just kind of gave me a weird look. In my opinion I think he wants the bag out of his shop after you buy it. Hahaa... He did say he'd mill the grain for free whenever I needed. Now I just need to find good storage.
