is $50 a bag for Briess 2-row a reasonable LHBS price?

it kinda looks like it'd cost that much to have any shipped from anywhere else.

I've been paying $35 locally. I seriously suggest contacting any local brewpubs and begging to piggyback a sack on their pallet orders.

I second that. I actually got 2 sacks for about $20 a few months ago. Usually though I'm around $35 per sack also

edit - this price is for pre-crushed by the way

I got Cargill 2-row (Schreier) on clearance at my LHBS for $25 for a 50lb sack. Normally it's $30

40 bucks a bag from my lhbs. I second the brewpub suggestion. I contacted one a few days ago via email and he offered to put me a bag of marris otter on his next purchase.. I had just bought from somewhere else though.

I pay about $50 a bag shipped from north country malt, so in comparison, your LHBS price seems fair... but, if you can find a brewpub willing to help you out, by all means, do so - the ones in my area don't give a crap about homebrewers.

THanks. I forgot about talking to brew pubs. We have only a few here but it won't hurt to ask. Hell maybe I can get some yeast slurry and make a new friend while I'm at it

I just hooked up with a guy who coordinates bulk orders for the HB'rs in St. Louis. I paid $27.50 each for (55 pound) Briess 2-row and Weyermannn Pilsner...delivered to St. Louis.
