If no one feels like organizing it, I have bought sacks of grain through Bitter and Esters before. They charged $10 on top of the Country Malt price to cover shipping and their time, but I'd say it was well worth it just for convenience of being able to pick up from them at my leisure instead of coordinating with someone. They just lump in your grain with their other orders so you don't need to get a minimum together. Not sure if that's something they do regularly but you might give them a call.

Is that for specialty grains (crystal 60) as well or just base malts?

I didn't ask. Just dug up the email chain and apparently they don't order from Country Malt. For reference, I paid a total of $53 for a 55 lb sack of Maris Otter.
