I bitch about this alot, but shipping to AK is such a PITA!

Merchant #1 - FREE SHIPPING on orders over $100, oh, but not for you.
Merchant#2 - Flat Rate shipping, oh, for everyone except you stupid Alaskans!

I'm looking for a new grain mill. Amazon is usually my go to place for everything, but I can't find a brewing grain mill.

The cheapest I've found is through the Barley Crusher website, $32.50! The mill is $114.50. It better be worth it!

Yes, but you have the benefit of a warm climate.

You guys made me smile. Thanks! Pretty good for a -30F day. -45F yesterday, with some parts of the "Greater Fairbanks Metro Area" reporting -60's.

Shipping - I thought that's how you're supposed to spend your resident Permanent Fund dividend check...

I wish. The PFD will cover about 1/3 of my winter heating oil bill.

What's to worry about, you have sun light 24 hours a day.

That just offsets our higher oil prices since we don't have refineries and have to have it shipped back up here... Or if you live in Nome...

Yeah, shipping prices suck. Have you looked at other mills like Monster? They might have a better shipping charge. Rebel Brewing or Austin might be able to offer you cheaper shipping than the website shows if you send an e-mail asking what it will cost since their calculators don't generally show USPS which they'll use for AK.

I feel your pain about shipping. I live in Japan but have a military APO address. Vendors only have to ship to San Francisco the govt takes care of the rest. But because it is via USPS and requires one extra piece of paperwork (customs declaration) very few want to go through the hassle. PITA!
