About a month ago, I hit up a semi-annual grain sale in which grain is 25% off. A sack of Briess two row was $37. I'm kicking myself for not getting a sack of Maris Otter. This place is only 5 minutes from the LD Carlson distributor, so their overhead shipping is minimal. Then a couple weeks ago another LHBS in the opposite direction from where I live had Briess two row sacks for sale at $35 (limit two).
Shoulda backed up the truck, dude.
Haha....I was already sitting on about 125 lb....Now it's about 200 lb (brewed a few times since then) lol. We just spent a bunch on keezer hardware, so 3 sacks (1 Maris Otter) was all we could justify at the time.
Both of these stores about 40-45 minutes away in each direction. I actually found a nice small homebrew store in the next town over. I went there a couple weeks ago to pick up some specialties. The guy was trying to sell me bulk grain. I had to explain to him the prices I landed....he said, "oh..that's good". But I assured him that I would certainly shop at his store for when I need small items in a pinch, like hops, yeast, and specialty grains. He much appreciated that.
