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

More important to me is that they've got a good selection of maltsters.  All our local shops dish up Muntons Marris Otter and Briess 2-row, neither of which do I want to use.  Because of that, I order bulk online and, with the free shipping, they look cheaper than when I order from North Country.

They're about $15+/ sack cheaper than any shop around here, but at least $10 more than I was getting from NorthCountryMalt.

its all dependent on where you live relative to NCM vs. the 50lb guys

for me, everyone of their prices is slightly less than NCM.
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Their prices are at least twice what I was paying at the brewpub down the road(40 miles) but the new brewer there has no love for homebrewers and will not let us piggyback on his malt orders like the 3 previous brewers would.  After 10 years of buying ultra cheap malt I may have to pay retail again.  Last year I bought 4 sacks, 210 pounds and paid a total of $102.  I should have bought 400 pounds.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

A brewpub brewer with no love for homebrewers?  I think I would find a new place to take my business.  Was this person a homebrewer at one time I wonder?

He never homebrewed.  He got a job at some mid sized brewery somewhere as a flunky and moved up the ladder.  Unfortunately it's the only brewpub within 200 miles of here, but since it's 40 miles away I rarely ever go there anymore.  He just doesn't want to be bothered by the dozen or so homebrewers in the area that might want to buy malt or hops.

$68 bucks for Briess 2-row... I pay $25 for any 50# sack of Briess from my local Brewpub. If that changes, I'm getting a biz license and going wholesale myself and supply the local homebrew club with my cost plus 10% for the fees etc. of maintaining a biz.

I just browsed their grain selection, again, and noticed that they don’t sell any Vienna, light Munich or dark Munich. What’s up with that?

Well, they do say they've pushed the date back so that they can "open with a bigger selection and better pricing".  Hopefully that bigger selection will include those malts.

yeah, I looked earlier today and I figured, well Jan 11 isn't technically over yet, so they've still got time.  If it still looks like that tomorrow, though, that's a different story.   :(

They're open.
I want to order, not sure what to get.
$200 gets another 25 off...
The moral majority, is neither.
