Grain Prices?

I'm looking to pick up a sack of Marris Otter and some Crystal 40. Who's got the best prices (shipped) on grain? North Country Malt has some good prices on their grain, but shipping nearly doubles the cost per sack. Northern Brewer is retarded expensive, costing about 30 dollars more per sack than North Country Malt. Same thing with MoreBeer. I really don't feel like spending 100 bucks on a sack of grain.
Where do you guys pick up your barley malt? Is there any place you know of that is cheaper than North Country Malt?

Cheers,
Dave

I have gotten all of my grain from group grain buys. I know that you can talk to Keven at Marcellos and he can get you what you need.

The best price you're going to get is from going in on a bulk but with us and the Redstick guys. Not sure when we'll be doing it again though.

If you need grain soon and don't want to wait you should talk to Kevin, just call him or swing by Marcello's. He'll give you a better price than anybody online since you won't pay shipping. You should be able to get it in a week or 2 depending on when the next order will be placed and come in.

Speaking of grain at Marcellos, do they have unpackaged grain by the pound for sale in the back, or is it all in those little 1lb bags?

+1 check with Kevin he doesn't have bulk grain
to sell by the pound. But he does have have gain in
10 pound bags fron time to time.

Just to clarify, I was talking about 50 lb. sacks that Kevin will get you if you ask him. He only orders 1 and 10 lb bags to keep in stock.

Not entirely true. I have bought at least two 55-lb sacks of Pale malt that Kevin bought because he now knows he will sell it. You can buy it from him for about $65 a sack. Much more than the $45 a sack shipped we get from North Country, but you don't have to wait for a bulk buy.
If he doesn't have any on hand, he will order it for you.
