I have the same cash flow problem too but I've found some ways to reduce the cost.
1. I'm now harvesting the yeast from the primary saving me over $6 each batch. I figure I can do this 3 or 4 times.
2. I purchased a 50 pound bag of 2-row for about $30.00 a savings of over 30 cents per pound compared to the per pound price.
3. I just purchased 3 pounds of hops from Hops Direct. The price came to about to 42 cents per ounce. My LHBS charges $1.50 per ounce.
