Damn, I made this mistake too!

Well, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is, eh?

No problem, I started looking round the site after you posted and barely noticed it myself.

DME is closer to 3.17 there though sadly.

Anyone in chicago wanna split a 50 lb bag?

I think we have a better deal on DME than DMEmart.

DMEmart 18 pounds DME= $71.94

www.austinhomebrew.com 18 pounds DME= $63.99

and only $7.99 flat rate shipping. So if you want more items than DME you don't pay any additional shipping than $7.99

Many people are fooled by the free shipping offer. It doesn't make it a better deal.

if 3lbs were 10.89 with free shipping, 18 pounds would be (6*10.89)=$65.34

but if you visit the website, 18pounds is $71.94, or $11.97 per 3pounds

MidCountry Malt supply in the Chicago area has DME for $98 for 50 pounds, UPS to Michigan added about $12-14. That's cheap!
2nd that -- they have a horrible website and you have to do it by phone, but I just ordered 50LB briess pilsen light DME for $98+17.50 tax to mid OH.

That's $2.31/# to my door!

I think the explanation on this place is that they aren't so much a homebrew mega mart as they are a true super-bulk distributor (to major micro-breweries including dogfish head), hence the minimal customer service but best prices.

When I called and talked to them yesterday they did not. That was North Country, but I'm pretty sure its consistent across the board. You can generally achieve the desired flavors and color from amber and dark dme with steeping grains. If you don't have beersmith, Brewmasters Warehouse's Brew Builder would be an excellent source for you to go and attempt to figure out how much grain to use. Searching the forums here will turn up which dark grains are in amber and dark, as I cant remember them off the top of my head.
