I always have the lhbs order mine, it's too expensive with shipping otherwise.
I just keep a 55lb sack around of American 2-row and then buy 10 or 1lb bags of the other things I need.

I keep mine in the sacks in a dry area inside the house and when I bring it out to the brewing area I put it into 2 brew buckets and seal it ip with lids. I have never had a problem with bugs of any kind. Put labels on them. It is easy to get confused.

Thanks guys. You've been helpful, and quick to respond.
Little over 600 clams gone on grain. Did the hour and 20 min
drive to Chester, Va. The owners were very helpful.
I got bulk 2 row, munich, marris, wheat, and pilsen.
I bought several 10# bags of various caramel, and
3 smaller bags of roast, cara.

Got the pro mash software, so I need to do some reading......and
some AG !!!!

Well, its a bit late, but here is my 2 cents:

55 lbs Dingman's Pils
55 lbs Simpson's Golden Promise

Sometimes I find myself wishing for a sack of 6-row US lager malt or a sack of German munich

We make a lot of Kolsch, Hellas, and Hefe's here so we order what we need for that. Most anything else we get at the local store or on line in small batches.

I'll be picking up a sack of Weyermann's Pils on Saturday. Ordered Dingman's, but LHBS was out. Anyone compared these two?
