Where are people ordering grain online? I just got a mill and would like to find a cheaper source of grain, now paying about $80/55lbs for pale ale malt. I brew mostly English beer but willing to consider what people think are good subs.

Thanks.

I use Northern Brewer, but I don't know how their prices compare. I don't buy 55# sacks, though...if I get those, I buy through my LHBS.

Try this link. They have a warehouse in the Northeast and another warehouse in Chicago. Our homebrew club ordered a pallet of grain from them. Great service.

Can you order by the sack? I see how to order per pound.

I found it.

Looks like shipping is going to kill me.

This might be a good deal for you if you can handle 4 bags:

200 pounds of 2-row

The shipping is $6.99 for your entire order now matter how much you buy.

That works out to be about $58 for a domestic two-row which isn't very competitive if you ask me. A domestic two-row should be closer to $40.

The place above is awesome, but is really only practical in these cases for pick-up. Less than $40 for Golden Promise and Marris Otter. Domestic two-row is only about $32. Pilsner is about $36 and Munich and Vienna are about $40 each.

A bunch of us do group buys from there, but it's only about a 45 min. drive for me, so it's not a big deal.

On topic: Try and find either a homebrew store near you, or a brewpub and ask to purchase bags of grain from them, or if they can include you in on their grain purchase for a couple of bags.

There is a homebrew store here, but Marris Otter is about 90 dollars a bag from him after tax. If I order from the warehouse, shipped, it looks like it would be 70 dollars, so I would still save around 20 dollars so not bad compared to what we have here.
