Default What do you buy in bulk?

My wife runs a bakery so I get the joy of 5 gallon food grade buckets which I use for just about everything

Until now I never though about buying grain in bulk. I am always interested in saving a dollar so spend a little to save a lot in the long run, so why not.

I am going to start with just 2 row for now, and if it goes well, I will move onto wheat, and . I only plan on getting my base grains, the specificity grains will come from the shop on an as needed basis.

Just curious as to what others buy in bulk?

two row domestic, marris otter, continental pils. I try to keep to the base grains like you said. Make sure your LHBS has no problems with milling your base grains. Mine doesn't have a prob if iam buying specialty grains. Eventually I found it easier to just to buy a mill. Also find a local bulk grain buy. Check with you r brew club or the tab here on HBT Some group buys support a split bag. Nice to have half or a third share of Munich, wheat, etc. I eventually replaced all the pryoff bucket lids to gamma lids.

Nothing! I really need to start. Mostly with hops, $3 an ounce is just not right.

Nothing at the moment but I'm planning on buying hops in bulk shortly. I'm an extract brewer so will probably end up buying the grains I'll use for steeping in bulk at some point too.

Base malt--mostly Maris, and some pilsner. Would like to save $$ on hops, but I just don't use enough of any one kind.
