This is where a good brew club helps.
a friend in my club got together a bundh of guys and made an order big enoughto get listed as a brewery ( from a local distributor of brewery grains I mean they have to buy it somewhere) )and now he buys for the other club members.
I got Durst Turbo Pilsner and Pale Ale malt for about $25 or $26 each and
Briess two row for $21 these are the 50# bags, that includes a little for his trouble and gas money.
So with a little effort or leg work you can beat $50 a bag, I'd say most of the time.
Primary :Belgian Blonde
Drinking on tap: , Vanilla Porter, and an American wheat ,Pale Ale
