Thanks. Maybe I'll give freehold a try. I'm ten minutes from Philly and their are a couple of lhbs there but its a pain going into the city just for beer supplies.

I get my 5 Gallon Carboys from Kitchen & Company for 30 bucks or cheaper if they send me a coupon in the mail. They seem really well made too.

In my area, there are a number of mom and pop, old-fashioned hardware stores that have been franchised by Ace hardware. Most of these places maintain a "self-sufficiency" section from the old days and sell a lot of canning/jarring equipment. This section always surprises me with how much homebrewing/winemaking equipment it has, including 5 gallon carboys for 29 bucks. I do live in wine country, but it would be worth a shot seeking out one of these old country hardware stores in your area.

edit: I bet they could order you quite a bit of stuff as well.

So far the best lhbs store I've encountered is keystone in Montgomery ...they have a huge selection of EVERYTHING..including glass carboys in stock(freehold only stocks better bottles but will and can order anything). Freehold is nice because they use so much LME for brew on premises that the liquid is fresh, as are their special grains. Their syrups and kits are really affordable because of their bulk syrups(they dispense syrups into quart Chinese food soup containers, which is kind of nice).

From brewers apprentice On average I pay about $1.50/lb for 2row and $2/lb of specialty grains, hops are usually about $1.75/oz...I went all grain rather quickly so I havent bought extracts in a while -I can say though their golden wheat hefe extract kit is wonderful - it was my first homebrew and the most highly raved, it's About $29 for the 5gal kit.

The show up on Craigslist in the DC area frequently.... I saw one guy selling about a dozen of them for $15 each... This was at the same time I was selling 3 for $30 bucks each.... I still sold mine as they are expensive to ship...
