Yesterday I went to the local shop for ingredients and was suprised at the cost of hops ($4/oz) and pale malt ($2/lb), so I was curious where you all order grain from? I see Austin Homebrew has 40# of American 2-row for $45, is this a good price? What's your favorite online store? Thanks.
Welcome to The Hop Shortage and The Barley Shortage.
40# for $45 isn't a bad price, but what's shipping on that? I end up purchasing my base malts locally and ordering most of my hops and specialty grains to save a little cash. AHS and Northern Brewer are my goto shops.
