Default Supplies in chicago

We are thinking of moving to Chicago soon. Where is the best place to buy bulk grains. Do I need to buy a ton here in Cincinnati before we move? I think base malts are about 41-45 after tax.

Not positive at this point. Maybe bucktown. Might be a suburb northwest though if that falls through.

Brew N Grow is a good choice, huge selection and good prices. I work in the burbs, but live just over the line in Wisconsin. Northern Brewer is only a 45 minute drive for me, with a great selection, as well.

Brew Camp has good prices, so I get all of my specialty malts from there. My bulk grains I get from a group buy organized by bmason. The next one will probably be around March or so, 2-row is somewhere around $30 after shipping and such. Just search for the chicago group buy and subscribe, he'll post in all of the recent ones to notify people.

Brew and Grow's prices seem to be competetive, imo. Especially when you realize you aren't paying for shipping. They usually have large sacks of base malt also that get you in well under a $1/pound. Pretty helpful knowledgeable guys as well.

Chicago Brew Works in Plainfield is decent. I've heard of the Two Brother's Brewers Co-op but don't know how good they are.

You can leave your grains in Cincy.
