The cheapest I've found so far is at Midwestsupplies.com. They have 55# boxes for like $ 140 before shipping and they'll ship it to me for $29. Anybody know of anyone else cheaper than $169 for a 55# box of bulk DME?

Thanks,

Gotta throw this out there - you could always consider going AG... Bulk grain in 55lb sacks costs me about $1/lb shipped, and your AG equipment could likely pay for itself on the first purchase...

$133.44 shipped my my Zip Deva, should be the same for you.

Deva's like me in that neither of us has the room to set up an AG rig yet. My current setup can handle 7lbs of grain, so I still need to use a few lbs of DME to make up the difference.

JSMCGARY you f-in'

That is by far the Cheapest I have seen by far!!!

I want to go AG but until I finish my basement and then build my brew room, PM may be where I end up having to be for awhile.

Why do you need to wait to go AG? What size pot do you have? You are already doing a PM so do you have a mash tun? As long as you have one pot big enough for full boils and a mash tun your set.. Keep your water heated in the pot, mash your grains and sparge into a temporary 5 gallon bucket. When you get hit your target amount of wort just empty the pot of water and add your wort. Away you go..

6 gallon pot. Also, I am currently only doing extract and SWMBO is going to flip if I bring in all the equipment that I don't have for AG. I have to do this piecemeal.

MidCountry Malt supply in the Chicago area has DME for $98 for 50 pounds, UPS to Michigan added about $12-14. That's cheap!
