Does anyone know of any place where a homebrewer can buy 5 gal (60+ lbs) of plain malt extracts for less than $1.84 per pound? I can buy 60 lbs locally in the Portland OR area for $110. I am interested in finding a better price. I am open to buying in mass bulk like a 55 gallon (600+ lbs) drum if I can get a substantially better price. With the full barrel I would likely need to arrange to share the costs with some other homebrewers in my general area.Anybody in the Portland OR area interested in going in together on a 55 gallon barrel?

I have found the maker of the extract I currently use. http://www.briess.com/foodbev/produc...l#brewersgrade

I haven't approached them yet with the idea of buying in bulk directly since they require that you are essentially a brewery to buy from them this way.

ANyone have any experience acquiring extracts in bulk like this? Anyone have any ideas??

Have you asked anyone at FH Steinbart's or Let's Brew if you could simply buy a 55 gallon barrel off of them? I know Let's Brew dispenses their LME right into plastic buckets and you take that home.

I wouldn't be in for a bulk buy because I do all grain batches.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
