Bought my second sack last week. Rahr 2 row at about $1/lb at my LBHS.

The savings paid off my Corona style mill before I even opened the bags since the mill was a Christmas present thus $0.

BTW I am getting 70 - 80% efficiency with the mill.

Only 1,530 miles away. Wonder how many $25 sacks id need to buy to break even on my current price of $40!

I did really like the CMC pale. My first big sack purchase will always hold a special place in my heart.

Here in the UK the sack costs 22.50 UKP - I usually make 7 x 6 gallon brews from it, so the cost is not an issue.
