DME did jump $2/pound, upon inspection. Bummer. At that time when I followed the thread you mentioned and went to the site, prices hadn't changed. Oh, well. Is the jump in price just because of the power grab? I live in the metro Detroit area. Any suggestions?They won't.
They were bought by Northern Brewer, which is owned by Blackstreet Capital Holdings. They will probably maintain their online presence, but they will be in lock step with Midwest Supplies as the highest priced places to buy supplies except for Northern Brewer itself. I recently (Mar. 25th) priced 3# of Briess DME:
Norther Brewer $20.99
Midwest Supply $17.99
Adventures in Homebrewing $17.99
Austin Home Brewing $17.99
Atlantic Brew Supply $11.99
Label Peelers $10.92
Rite Brew $10.09

BTW, this is discussed on "Did Northern BrewerPurchase Austin Home Brew AND/OR Adventuresin Homebrewing"? in the General Home-brew Discussion Forum.
Thank you for the info.
