Just curious where you all buy them from and whether it is worth it after the shipping? I think I'm going to wind up with a Barley Crusher for Christmas.. The homebrew shop that I currently buy my grains from here in Columbus Ohio charges $2 per pound for all grains including base malts. Trying to figure out where I'm going to get my sacks from after I get a mill though. Local HBS won't sell by the sack. If anyone knows one close to Columbus Ohio that would be most useful info too...
Cheers!

Use Austin Homebrew for up to about 150 lbs. They'll give you $6.99 shipping on a single order, regardless of weight. If you want more than that, check into a pallet from North Country Malt.

My LHBS charged me $46 for a 55 lbs sack of Weyrman Pilsner. Nice drop down comare to $1.50 usual per lbs price.

Define close.

Listermann's in Cincinnati sells grain by the bag. They also have free shipping on orders over $35 east of the Mississippi although pricing is nothing special.

LHBS was $33ish for 50lbs or 2-row. Can't beat that.

I thought that 6.99 didn't count towards bulk grain.

Nevermind, just checked and I think that does include bulk grain. But man, 40lb bags for 55 - 60 bucks? That's a pretty bad deal.

Price the online competition. You really can't beat it once you add the shipping costs. If I had a local supplier, I could probably cut that by about 1/3, but I don't.

I have been ordering from B3. You cannot use the free shipping for bulk orders, but they have varieties I cannot get locally, so I order by the pound up to around 40-50 pounds. Since this is not technically a bulk order it seems to qualify for free shipping. For example, there is nowhere within 75 miles of me that seems to carry Golden Promise. I just got 30 pounds plus a bunch of other crap cheaper than I would locally shipped for free. I did a side by side compare, and they are the cheapest.

Also, you should note, I think AHS sells bulk in 40 lb incraments.
