New (for me) online homebrew store.

Postby Mob_Barley » Thu Nov 12, 2009 5:01 am

Some of you may already know about this place, but I just found out about it. It's called http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com

They have some pretty good (some very good) prices on grain compared to Austin Homebrew and Northern Brewer, they have $6.99 flat rate shipping, and they are in GA, meaning your yeast would arrive in two or three days instead of five or six as from NB.

I havent looked at everything, but the grain prices are awesome.

I ordered a sack of 2-row from them a few weeks ago. It was on my step 2 days later, and it was cheaper that North Country Malt with shipping thanks to the flat rate shipping.

Most homebrew supplies do not include the bulk sacks of grain or other bulky items (such as carboys or cases of bottles) in their flat-rate shipping. If you got $6.99 shipping on a 55 or even 40 lb sack of grain, then you got a deal.

I'll have to check them out soon.

Exactly. AHS is the only other retailer that I know of who allows bulk grain in their flat rate shipping. I called Brewmaster's Warehouse to see if sacks of grain were included, and they said "yes". I also asked if 2 sacks would still qualify, and they said "yes" again. Then I said that they "just got a new loyal customer for bulk grains", and they said "great". Then I said bye, and he said bye... and then I hung up :roll: .

I didn't ask about anything over 2 sacks because I would not use more than that in a reasonable amount of time (and I don't want them to lose too much money on the sale).

I heard a rumor that Kevin will match anyone else's price. I don't think he would in this case, but it's worth checking on.

Where are you guys seeing sack pricing? That price is ok by the pound, but if I buy a sack, I expect to pay much less than that. Do you need to call them?

Brewmaster's Warehouse wrote:We do not have any discounted prices on sacks of grains. To order a full sack of grain just type in the amount of grain you want, ie 55 lbs, for a full sack. We also do not change our flat rate shipping prices either, so a full sack of grain still ships for 6.99.


Even still, the Briess 2-Row and Pilsner are a pretty decent deal at $64.45 per sack shipped.

Cheers,

Last time we ordered from North Country, we managed to get enough people together between 2 clubs to fill a pallet. Cost each person $5 bucks in shipping per sack. Last price I paid from North country was $34.73 for pilsen, which put the sack price in at under $40 bucks shipped.

Sounds like it may be time to get in another bulk buy. Anyone else interested?

Interested but broke. Maybe next time.
By the way, the price Guitarlord quoted is actually higher than what Kevin charges at Marcello's once the club discount is figured in. and I believe I paid just under $45 a sack shipped last time from North Country.

Yeah, they don't list the grains by the sack. I just added 50lbs for the sack after calling. The price definitely isn't as good as what you can get from North Country for a pallet, but for those of us who can't put together a pallet buy, it isn't too bad.

You need to grow your club and convert the starchy newbies into sweet all-grain brewers. :wink:
Four brewers at ten sacks apiece is a pallet. Two orders a year should keep you in home brew.
