I ordered my 50lb bag of Briess DME from Farmhouse. John is a great guy and it was the best deal I could get. I'm planning on ordering another from him.

You should too.

^^^ I'll second that for sure, his hop price are insane, and you can order as much as you want. My LHBS has them for roughly twice the price, and its a 3oz. limit as of last I heard. I like my LHBS and all and am in there several times a month, but Farmhouse Brewing has my hop business for the foreseeable future.

Thanks. Good to know about that FAQ, the language kinda implies a generic formula not their specific formula. Anyhow, I use both the LME and DME. My main gripe is when I get stuck buying small amounts for recipies at the LHBS and pay top dollar. One thing that is nice about the Williams LME is that it is actually four 8lb packages.

I agree with you about actually telling the differnce between all grain/LME/DME.. I mean its beer.. everyone is a winner!

Only $13 FedEx ground shipping here to Ohio -- makes it about $2.20/lb. I'm all over that, esp. since my LHBS charges about $5 to $5.50 per pound and that's usually ~60% of my costs per batch.

Thanks, Asimms!

Thanks for the post. I bought a bag of Wheat. It was my first order so i saved 10%. $107 shipped.

Reason: grammar

Update on this....FedEx ground got it to me in like a day and a half -- probably due to proximity, they're over in Eastern Ohio somewhere and I'm in Columbus (middle of the state) so it didn't have far to travel. Had to pay OH sales tax which added another $10 to the cost, but at ~$2.40/lb that's still only half of what my LHBS charges.

Got a large pet food storage container yesterday, and then used the first 8 lbs of the DME for a Liberty Ale clone. Left the remaining 42 lbs in the bag (rolled down tightly) and stuffed it into the pet food container....just by a little bit, it wouldn't fit, so I wrapped the whole thing in a garbage bag to keep moisture out. (Once I take another 7 lbs out for the next batch, the container ought to fit just right.) For good measure I left a couple ziplocs half-full of powdered sugar (and open) in the garbage bag to try and suck up any moisture before it gets to the DME.

Basically, so far so good, and my costs are now down under $40 instead of up near $60 ... which makes SWMBO very happy.
