Buying your base malt and hops in bulk would help. A pound of cascade should be about 10 and 55 pounds of 2 row about 40.
Maybe on your side of the Cascades Jim, but not around here.  More like $16 for the hops and $60+ for a 50 lb bag of domestic 2-row on this side.

just try going organic! then your talking ~ 25 for the hops and 80 for the grain.

Yikes...no way I could afford to brew if I brewed only organic.
Go big AND go home.

that's probably a little high on domestic cascades, but continental malt can be wicked expensive. I've seen MO for over 100 bucks for a sack.

Spoiled I guess.  My LHBS is 90 miles from Yakima, 90 miles from Great Western, and 30 miles from Wyeast.

Ahh how quickly we forget $30 for 1lb of hops a few years ago. My hops run about $7-8lb now. Yes I need to buy at least 11lbs and there is shipping on top.
