I recently bought 50lb of American Pale Malt from Morebeer.com for $1.01 a lb and 7 lb of C-120 @ $1.65 a lb (w/ free shipping over $59). Group buys are much cheaper, but I was impatient.

Cheers!

Wow I have it good, my LHBS less than a mile from my house charges 45 for a 50lb sack of 2row, $1.50 for wheat, Marris otter and 1.50-2 for specialty grains, no charge to crush. Most hops are $1.99 per oz and up to 3 for some of the "expensive" ones.

I did look into group buys on grain but with the price of gas and unless I'm buying a few sacks at a time I'll support my local guy, not to mention I like going there, super nice guy and really knows his stuff.

Although I mentioned group buys, I also buy locally. In fact, the local store was offering sacks of 2-row for $40, and I scooped up a "few".

I'm at $1.25 for base and $1.75 for specialty. Uncrushed, free mill on site. Pellet or leaf hops are $1.99 oz across the board.

where do you guys find 50lb for 35? I only see that price with a $27 shipping on top of it.

LHBS is 1.50 for base and most of the specialty grains. some things like Munich are cheaper than base malts...they have for 1.45...cant figure out why they cant give a volume discount when they have a pallet of 4 55 gallon drums of pale 2row instead of a little bucket of the specialty.

I have a number of LHBS within 10 miles of my houses. The closest sells 2 row for 99 cents (or $1) and will grind it for you at the time of purchase for free. Hop leaf is $1.99 per oz. Most of the other stores sell in 2 oz packages for around $4. They also sell bottled beer and have always have 10 brews on tap in a keezer in the back room. One of the other stores has its own little brew pub and will sell you a 50 lb sack of 2 row for $36 and "store" the sack for you. Basically, for $36 you get credit for 50 pound. They will also grind it for free.

I'm all for LHBS, and do a fair bit of purchase from my local, especially since he's a member & sponsor of our brew club. With that said, however, I'd be unable to brew if I bought all my stuff there--the cost would be prohibitive. I can get 50# of 2-row for $45 but 3# DME, a vial of yeast, & 2oz of Kent Goldings cost me $35. I brew a LOT (15 batches so far this year) on a teacher's salary. So I buy my hops, specialty grains, and yeast online and get bulk grains, bottles, hydrometers, and such from the LHBS.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
