New bulk grain supplier
« on: November 30, 2010, 11:47:19 AM »
Saw this on a couple other boards and wanted to let everybody here know, too.  Check out http://www.fiftypoundsack.com/ .  They go live tomorrow, but through today you can go there to get a discount code that won't be available after they open.  I don't really have much other info.

$65 or a sack of Best Malz Pilsner? I thought they were much cheaper when I bought them from North Country a while back.

But at least they carry Weyermann. There I was not surprised about the $59 price tag.

Free shipping, though, as I understand.  I'll be curious to see how things work out once they open.

If you click the "shipping" link it says shipping charges are based on weight

Yeah, but if you actually click on a sack of malt, it says Free Shipping.

I'd like to see an "About Us" section on their website...unless I'm totally missing it. 

Even with free shipping, prices are a little higher than I get at North Country ( at least as long as they are still willing to sell to me ).  Nice to have options though.

Cool, I'll probably give 'em a shot the next time I need grain.

After my recent password problem(which went away all by itself) I'm suspicious, and there are some things about this site that bother me.  Maybe it's just that they're still in the early phases of building a business but if you click on their hops there is no info at all, just the price.  No AA info, product descriptions, there's just not much here.  And the" today only" discount code with free shipping of 50-50 pound sacks of malt seem like a great hook, but since the site has no track record whatsoever I'm gonna pass for now.  I'd really like to buy 3 or 4 sacks with free shipping and a 10% discount but I can't make myself give up my credit card info.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Ditto.  Can't trust a website without a physical address, even if they are really legit.

I'll check it again tomorrow to see if they add this information with phone #, address, etc.

Looks like they are $20-30 more per sack than the local shop for me...

The prices seem high but as shipping in incl. that does help,
